This is loeyann again, if you recall I was here a few weeks ago telling you all about my sister, well we had a major setback. She went for her second round of chemo, and well to make a long story short she ended up with a perforated bowel and had a large abcess removed from her belly port area. She is in CCU and on a ventilator to help her breathe, until she gets stronger. They are worried about sepsis now. She lost alot of blood, has no electrolytes, and is real sick, she also has a colostomy bag they say it is reversible. Can anyone tell me how does this happen? The doctor says he can't believe it took this long to show up, they check her blood all the time, she did call and tell them the port was sore when she got it. She almost died! Our family is just floored! We thought she was lucky her forst round of chemo went well so to speak, she was just real tired for a few days and had a little diareah and it went away, she had bad achyness from the Neulasta and Procrit but that subsided after a few days and some pain medicine. They removed the belly port of course, will they put it back in do you think? I have not brought myself to go and see her yet, I can't handle seeing her on all those machines, I feel so helpless. I am going to try to get there on Thursday, she might be off the ventilator then if she keeps on improving. I am sorry for such a long blog but I am scared and stumped.
