I don't like the fact that they're putting the vomiting and weight loss down to "psychological stress" and not her cancer and it's treatment. Now of course someone battling cancer would be stressed but given her own history when crown princess, and that of her daughter-in-law, I'm getting huge red flags. She certainly shouldn't have faced stress as crown princess but it's even more inexcusable that she's facing it again in her 80s as the Empress Emerita.
Come on, you would think the IHA would get caught up with science and health and realize that vomiting and weightloss also happens with cancer...
Right...I forgot to add that it would be totally normal for those to be cancer treatment side effects.
Indeed, this is a very strange medical report from the Imperial Household Agency
, who seem obsessed with illness "triggered by psychological stress,"
especially when it comes to royal women. I agree, Oh_Caroline
, about red flags!
Nevertheless, I don't think that vomiting blood
is a normal side effect of cancer treatment for breast cancer. Per the Mayo Clinic, truly vomiting blood usually represents something such as bleeding in your upper gastrointestinal tract from peptic ulcers or torn blood vessels.
Years ago, vomiting was unavoidable with chemotherapy; now there are many drugs that help control nausea and vomiting called antiemetics. When I went through chemotherapy for breast cancer, I took SIX anti-nausea drugs and never got sick to my stomach once they got the meds right.https://www.nippon.com/en...vomited-blood-agency.html
