Nausea help - please !

Hi !

I began my Phospho Soda at 9 AM. It really didn't taste that badly - sort of like Alka Seltzer. But, now 4 hours later I am feeling very nauseated. Since I am on the clear liquids there is not much I can do about it. I have been drinking boullion (sp?) and clear fluids. But, I just started sipping a glass of tea. It seems to help.

I am allowed anything that can be seen through - including coffee (but no milk or cream). But, the gellatin must be plain - so that leaves out any jello.

Does anyone have any hints? This is such a sick feeling. Thanks.

Hey Rayna

Sorry to hear you are feeling so badly. I understand as I have had to drink that stuff and you are much braver than me! I thought it tasted horrible! Anyway, you may want to check with your doctor on this, but I was allowed to have YELLOW jello (lemon flavor). I just couldn't eat orange or red jello due to the color, but perhaps you could do the lemon?

I know even smelling lemon jello now will make me sick - it brings back the memories of that awful prep!

Thanks Lisa !

I don't have any lemon here ( and afraid to leave - if you know what I mean ), but I do have some peach jello. I think I will try that.

I can understand why you are reluctant to leave the house - I would be too!

I was told to stay away from anything red or orange and that is why I went with Lemon. I used to like it, but not anymore I'm sure the doctor's office could tell you if the peach was okay or not. Maybe you could give them a call?

Good luck and 's

Warm 7-up has usually helped me with nausea and helps to settle the tummy. As Dawn suggests, ginger ale is suppose to be good for nausea also.

Good luck sweetie I hope things get better soon.

The only thing that works for me is a really cold, wet wash rag. If I can put it on my neck and lay down usually that will kick the nausea for me. The sitrate (sp?) stuff I had to drink last week for my poop-a-thon made me nauseous. The cold rag trick helped.

I hope your tummy is feeling better soon!!!

I know how you feel. I had a colonoscopy

in Sept and had drink that awful stuff. I was nausea all day long. I guess some people have senstive stomachs. What work for me was lay down and drink cold water. The nausea finally subsided. Take care. It does get better.

Hope you make it sweetie!! 's!!
