Keeping weight on during chemo will be a challenge. The nausea depresses the appetite, and when you have dramatic weight loss quickly it causes other problems. I agree you should focus on how best to deal with the nausea-- the docs can worry about the bigger issues of course. You might ask about a anti-nausea Rx.I think at this point dealing with the immediate problem of her nausea from the chemo will be a challenge.
Even the smell of food preparation can become objectionable. Before I was on chemo, I had almost no sense of smell. But once chemo started, I could smell my wife cooking dinner even though I was a long ways down the hall in the master bedroom. It was sickening. I put towels under the door to keep the smell out. Then tried to eat quickly once the food arrived. Chemo is a rough road for many. I will keep you and her in my prayers.
