Nausea and Vomiting, Version 1.2016

Side effect care is important.

Parts 1 through 4 of this book are meant

to help you learn what causes treatment-

related nausea and vomiting. They may

also help you talk to your doctor about

anti-nausea and vomiting therapies.

Part 5 will give you sample questions for

the doctor along with web resources on

side effect care.

The information in this resource section might help

you find out which cancer therapies can cause

nausea and vomiting, help you connect with an online

support group for dealing with side effects, or find a

healthy eating plan to follow. These are only a few

examples of how the resources in Part 5 can help

you. First, let’s start with talking to your doctors about

side effect care.

Questions to ask your doctors

You may meet with experts from many fields of

medicine during this time. Make it a goal to have

helpful talks with each person along the way. Get your

questions ready before your visit and repeat back

what answers you hear. You can also record your

talks and take notes at each visit. It may be helpful to

have a family member or friend with you for support.

The questions below are suggestions for the side

effects you read about in this book. Feel free to use

these questions or come up with your own questions

for your doctor and other members of your treatment

team.
