    Mimi you have to drink and if you can't get yourself to drink than go in for hydration. If you are properly hydrated things will fall into place. As far as the mood, they can give you something for that too. Don't be afraid to take meds it's for your own good, take care of yourself and do what's best and this journey will fly by. ❤

    Call your office about hydration. I could hardly eat or drink, either. My hubby called the office (I was so sick I couldn't even manage to attempt to help myself) and they had him bring me right in. The extra fluid didn't help 100% but I was better with it than without it - I was able to eat and drink because it took away a lot of my nausea. I have been praying for you! I know you feel you can't do it but you can. I am on the other side cheering you on, just as you will soon be cheering someone on going through this phase.

    Hydration! I was so sick from A/C and lost a lot of weight. One week after every treatment, I would have two bags of fluid and after that, I felt soo much better. Good luck to you! Sarah D

    I'm 3 days from my 1st A/C treatment too! So far I guess I'm okay. Been trying to follow everyone's advice with the water. I was also prescribed Emend. Maybe that has helped. Only SE I have is lots of dizziness. As long as I move slow it's workable. Hope things work out for you Mimi. Hugs.

    Call for hydration and ask for emend with future treatments. It was a lifesaver for me!!

      I think emend works great too. One pill can last up to 3 days . Good luck thinking of you.
