    Because Will has been having  nausea and some vomiting, his oncologist wants a brain scan.  So far, he has no other symptons.  The vomiting is accompanied by a fair bit of nausea, and is usually later in the day. 

    Naturally, I'm terrified : (

      Lori – Thinking of you and Will as you wait for his scans.  I know how scared you must be.  I, too, my scared…My husband is having issues also…but still refusing to even go to the doctor.  The fear can really get to you.  I am praying and hoping all is okay for Will.

      Take Care,

      Sherron, wife to Jim

      Just wanted to let you know that my husband had severe nausea with the dacarbazine treatments ( and weirdly weeks afterwards) we discovered that the best way to control it was 12hr Gravol… the stuff they presecribed didn't touch it.

      It only really went away 4 weeks after his last chemo treatment. the doctors were really puzzled, but no Brain mets just a weird reaction.

       

      Hope all goes well.
