One down - Nine to go

I'm home from my first treatment. It wasn't too bad. I didn't have any nausea, but the doc said that might come later, so I have my ginger gum handy if it does. I'm just glad I don't have to have chemotherapy along with the radiation. That, from what I've heard, would be bad.

I still feel fine. I bought the gum at Walgreens in the section with the Dramamine and Sea Bands (it's made by Sea Band, lol!). I didn't know it came in gum form, either until I looked up anti-nausea medicine and saw it and read some great reviews of it. I like it! It's spicy and reminds me a little of the old Clove gum I loved as a kid. The flavor doesn't last long, though.

Okay, good, "only" eight more to go!! They say you posted this 9 hours ago. So, how are you now? I so hope your tummy hasn't gotten upset. Where did you buy the ginger gum? Is it in with other gums or where is it located in the store? I didn't know ginger came in a gum form.

{{Ann}} sure hope the day has passed without major reaction to the treatment. Ginger tea is really great too...the warmth along with the ginger is very soothing to the tummy
Hugs & Love
