Check with Onc MD...: Your dad's oncologist should be notified about his symptoms. There are many good anti-nausea medications available. Any drug including chemo can have dangerous side effects so it's a matter of weighing the risks and benefits with the help of his doctor(s). If the potential risks are disturbing, but small in frequency, and the benefit potential is large, it probably makes sense to take it.
