Hello Dear Ladies
I am still having such a very hard time. The pain is so constant and really bad. The doc has adjusted the pain meds, removed the percoset and upped the dose of the dilaudid and the roxanol.
I was able to get the results of the ct scan that was done on Tuesday. Mostly good. There is an area that has a large pocket of fluid. Since my white count is not to out of wack, they are unsure if this is an infection or possibly one that is just starting to brew.
I was also told that the extreme pain mostly is from the way the onc had to "rip" apart all the adhesions from the many previous surgeries. Everything is now so raw and inflamed.
My doc is worried about the dehydartion and my low blood counts. he said that if I try really hard to eat little bits of nutritional foods and to try to keep drinking any thing, I may be able to not have any transfusions. he is not to keen on giving blood, unless there really is no other way.
I'll try my best, but am feeling like this is an impossible task. I can hardly eat, the pain becomes so intense.
Maybe if things remain the same by the begining of the week, I'll consider getting some i.v. fluids and some blood. I think it might be just the little extra I need to fight my way back to a healthy place.
I hope you all are able to enjoy the up coming weekend, summer has just passed me by.
If any of you have a thought or two about this latest news, I would really love to hear from you.
Thank you all for you kind and continued support. Just knowing that I can reach out to you, brings me great comfort.
PS I posted some pictures that my hubby took of the first day of surgery. They are on my expression page. I hope you don't find them to be to much..
