The pain I'm having in my stomach are due to a tumor on my small bowel. the report reads-there are some dilated fluid-filled loops of small bowel measuring 3.9 cm in diameter, nonspecific and may represent ileus pattern, however, developing small bowel obstruction is conceivable. Next week (wed,) we will start cisplatin. Getting scared now there is also lymph nodes present that appear slightly more conspicuous in my abdomen. Any thoughts or experience with this drug would be greatly appreciated. Will try to stay positive and pray this drugs slows it down. Feeling like the end is coming real fast. Kathy

I am so sorry and I know you are feeling overwhelmed. I will pray for you. I do not know anything about cisplatin but hopefully this will be good for YOU. I have saw several others that are on it though. Your doctor is still trying things on you so please don't give up. Keep us posted on how you are doing. We all care.

I will be getting my pet/scan next week and I am kind of scared too. I have been having a lot of pain in my pelvic area.

Lots of love and prayers.
