Acid reflux, often called heartburn, can be common while undergoing chemotherapy and after treatment has ended. We want to know how you have managed acid reflux during chemo -- what helped and what didn't?

Bicarbonate of soda

When ever I had acid reflux during my chemo,I use to mix a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda with half glass of cold water n drink it down n instantly felt better..

Staying still after eating

Sitting upright in the recliner for about 30 minutes after eating really my heartburn. I never had it before chemo and now that chemo has ended, I still have heartburn.
