My daughters brain surgery went very well, a BIG  thank you to those who PM-ed me, they found more then expected, but were able to fix the problem.

But still NO guarantee. We take it, pain reduced allready and that is a good sign.

My self, I had my CT scan yesterday, and like all of us nervously waiting for the results. I have not been feeling well lately

but think it might be all the stress I have been under from my daughters problem with her Trigiminial nerve from her MS.

CEA has always been a good marker for me, but it was elevated and I think it might be because of consistent Bladder infections, hopefully it is that. Nextweek I will know more.

Surgeries all around it seems.

I'm so glad that your daughter has responded to the surgery - such a relief for you all.

My wife's younger brother just had a heart attack....but it was caught in time...he's in surgery about now after a long day of delays.  Supposed to be a triple bypass. He's never had surgery so that's a pretty big one to get acquainted with right off the bat.  We're hoping all goes well.

Best of luck with your scan results.

And more stress, I am so glad a lot of it was alleviated with your daughter coming through brain surgery so well, and will send positive thoughts, sparks and anything else your way that her prognosis becomes excellent.

Hopefully the stress on your body is reason for CEA rise Or the infection being the reason. Am sending you a virtual arm around your shoulder as you wait for your scan results, may they be nothing but good!

Glad to hear that the surgery went well.  Hope she will recover very soon and all is going in the right direction for her. Praying for good results for your scan as well.  It's always so tough.

Thank you all for the hugs and love and uplifting words, sometimes I feel so alone since the death of my husband 3 years ago and my move to be closer to the kids. 

Any sympathetic word at the moment brings tears.

Hugs to all,

Marjan

Sorry, I'm late with this. Just trying to catch up with posts, while I'm in "Oxycodone" land. It's the best I can do for the dang pain right now.

I didn't realize your daughter was having the surgery, but am so glad that it went well.

As for feeling crappy, I'm hoping it's a bladder infection, as you suspect. It can make you feel bad all over, but at least they can give you an antibiotic.

Take care,

Luv,

Wolfen

Hope your scans go equally well, and then you can all take a little breather.  Sometimes it does feel like the universe is just piling on.  Hugs and strength coming your way~AA
