My mother-in-law (78) was diagnoised 3 weeks ago with epitheal ovarian cancer. We have not found out the stage, but did learn today that a test result came back showing "Poorly differentiated carcinoma-high grade primary ovarian cancer. She had her first round of chemo 2.5 weeks ago with carboplatin. She has been very nauseated since to the point of vomiting and not able to eat more than a spoon full of cream of wheat in the morning- 5 pieces of mandarin orange at lunch and a few crackers in the evening. Nothing tastes good so she won't try anything and is drinking only a few sips of gingerale every couple of hours or so. She began taking Demeclocycl for low sodium levels about 6 days ago and is taking Ondansetron for nausea. She has severe heartburn after taking the Demeclocycl. Can anyone recommend anything to help with the nausea, vomitting, and heartburn?
