Should I Look For A Different Dr???

I have a question. I went for my 1st mammogram on 4/1 and I received the results via email on 4/3.

Nausea Acid Reflux

Nausea Acid Reflux

I had my 3 round of chemo on Friday. I am struggling the week after with food/hydration. The 1st time every thing was metallic tasting. The past 2 times every thing is sweet, but not in a good way. Water makes the acid reflux worse, and so does food. Wondering if anyone else found something helpful?

Use plastic fork. The medal utensils make food taste like metallic.
