    Chemotherapy can be pretty rough on the digestive tract, but those cells grow back pretty quickly. The first treatment is often the worst, because the patient has no idea what they're in for, nor how their body will react.

    There are several kinds of anti-nausea medication if nausea is a problem. Ask for a couple presciptions that work in different ways to prevent nausea if that is the problem.

    See if the doctor's office has a nutritionist/dietician on staff. Ask for one with a "CSO certification". They will know about nutrition and diets during chemotherapy - unlike a regular dietician. Drinking lots of water, eating the right kinds of fibers (soluble / insoluble) to speed up or slow down digestion, and eating smaller but more frequent meals are a few of the basic tips.

    Testicular cancer is one of the very few cancers that can be cured with chemotherapy, so there's more reason to try and continue treatments.
