Indigestion like symptoms , nausea and vomiting are side effects of chemotherapy and would get better on its own so nothing much to worry about. She can take ginger tea for relief. If symptoms do not improve then do see a doctor.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
