My 18 year old daughter is 56 days post transplant. She’s been doing really well; her blood results are all great - but in the last week she’s started to feel nauseous all the time & eating has become very hard. She’s suffered from nausea/vomiting throughout treatment (flag-Ida chemo was particularly bad) & has already lost a lot of weight - she’s so skinny now it really scares me when she can’t eat more than a few mouthfuls during the day. She’s on just about every anti-emetic going (ondansetron, hyacine patch. Levapromazine). It could be the meds making her sick or it could be Gvhd. Just wanted to hear from others who’ve gone through this - how long did it last, & any tips? Thanks.
