Most people who have nausea and vomiting from medications, chemotherapy or radiation therapy have it infrequently and on a temporary basis. These side effects can be aggravated by certain foods, activities or surroundings. The following suggestions may help you limit these problems and allow you to eat adequately until they pass.

At mealtimes Anytime If the smell of food bothers you, stay away from cooking areas. When possible, let someone else do the cooking. If you must cook, use foods that can be warmed at low temperatures or those that do not need to be cooked, such as sandwiches, cheese and fruit plates, or salad plates. Foods often give off less odor when cooked in a microwave oven. If these steps do not help, talk to your physician about anti–nausea medication.
