Relaxation soaking in a hot tub is the only thing that would help me. Sometimes 2-3 times a day. It was dtermined in my case to be the premed decadron (steroid) that is used prior to getting my chemos. They are very annoying and wear you out.
My dad just started his first round of gemzar/dex last Friday and by Saturday he started hiccuping. He previously went through two different chemo series (first was 5FU+adrucil; second was 5FU+avastin+oxaliplatin+leucovorin) and didn’t have any hiccup issues. He’s got an ERCP coming up next Monday and I’m concerned that the constant hiccups will make the procedure difficult, not to mention that the hiccuping is uncomfortable in general.
Any successful rememdies out there? I noticed that someone indicated brioschi as a good remedy but I’m concerned about the high sodium content.
