Have anyone had nausea, cavity on pickles, any type of salty/marinade food during AC therapy? I can't stand smell of kitchen, any type of perfume nor smell of meat or dairy product and I feel nausea whenever I drink water.

    Some smells set me off too. I did try some aromatherapy which helped mask other sent plus kept me calm. I hated the taste of water but that was because of the acid reflux.

    I was very queasy despite all the anti nausea meds. Some smells made me so I'll. I think it's very normal

    I was very sensitive too. People had to cook when I was out of room or bring me food that wasn't smelly. Things I loved I couldn't even think about, like certain cheeses. Bland was best for the first few days after infusion. Pasta with plain sauce and bland cheese, stoned wheat thins with cream cheese were a savior for me! I also at a lot of watermelon and grapes. Helped keep me hydrated. If youre worried you aren't eating enough 1-2 days after, try filling up before and during I fusion...I would have milk in the morning to get some protein in case I had no appetite later. And I always craved an egg sandwich during infusion. Then I didn't eat much the rest of the day

    I felt the same way during treatment. My husband had to make his coffee outside because I couldn't handle any smells. I couldn't handle any of my extended family's laundry detergent they had to switch for me. It was so hard but just know that it does get better after treatment . Hugs to u. Hope u find some relief.
