History of lung cancer. Feeling of malaise. Taking Omeprazole for acid reflux. Any ideas?

Several times a day I feel lousy (a general yucky feeling). This has been going on for several months. I went through radiation and chemo two years ago. I had radiation in upper right lobe of lung as well as several lymph nodes near the lung and one at base of neck on right side. All pet-scans since (there have been several) have been negative - no reucrriing cancer; everything remains in remission. I just had a colonoscopy and and an upper endoscopy . I now have acid reflux. I am taking omeprazole (20 mg), levothroxine (175 mcg), and trilipix (135 mg). I also take Metimucil for additional fiber. The general yucky feeling only started about four/five months ago. I was on cisplatin, carboplatin, and aliminta plus Tarceva for 16 months. I ve been off Tarceva for about a year. My last blood test showed a wbc count of 12.6. Any ideas why I feel this way at times during the day. I ve already had two episodes today - one last about 2 minutes the other about 30 seconds. Any ideas? I m having more tests done over the next couple of weeks.

Hi! Thanks for the query. The nauseating feeling is unrelated to your cancer. It is most likely the residual effect of chemotherapy. If your latest reports also show no evidence of cancer, you can rest assured. Ondansetron thrice a day might help.
