     I go in for paracentasis

     I go in for paracentasis tomorrow. In plain English it means they will be draining fluid build up in my belly and right lung pleura.  Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers that I get the relief I so desperately need. The last couple of months have been the biggest challenge of my life.  I miss you all. I have been following just not posting.

    Sorry, same here

    I had 4 liters of fluid drained on Monday.  Unfortunately the bloated belly is back already.  I hope you have longer relief.

    Jeff, you reached out to me

    Jeff, you reached out to me in some of my most anxious moments... I will never forget that!

    I am praying for you, praying hard. I am asking for you to not only get relief, but that you get on top of this battle again.

    Thank you for being a friend, God bless you.

    No luck today. Not enough

    No luck today. Not enough fluid to drain WTF. AlL the bloating is inflamed tissue. I am just supposed to live with it. My onc said to supplement with Boost or Ensure and start me on Fentynal patch. Great more drugs.

    Well

    I know sarcasm when I hear it! Not a fan of Ensure, especially warm like they gave it to me in the hospital.
    You're in my thoughts Jeff

    The bloating started out on

    The bloating started out on my right side in the cavity where the 2 ribs that they removed used to be. Apparently fairly normal for that type of operation my oncologist and surgeon confirmed. It gradually moved to my upper abdomen and suddenly since my last treatment my lower abdomen got really bad. I emailed my concerns to my oncologist again yesterday. he said he would like to get my surgeons opinion. My surgeon couldnt offer an opinion until I get a scan. So they are setting up a scan now. It is definately nerve wracking and stressful. Not to mention very uncomfortable and painful at times. I cant stand to even look at myself in the mirror. Not because of vanity but it is scary to look at how much I have changed in a short time.

    Its very hard

    to see ourselves with all of the scars criss-crossing our bodies, and now you have to deal with bloating, which disfigures you even more. And like you say, its not so much vanity but what Cancer has created; almost a monster; some kind of Frankenstien. 

    I hope the can expidite your can and get you in today or tomorrow. The sooner the better. The sooner you know what is happening the better. 

    Cyber hugs!

    It's painful

    to read about all you've been going through.  I can't begin  to imagine how painful and frustrating it must be for you. I join everyone in hoping you can get the scan you need pronto and that the doctors can  find a way to get rid of the bloating  and give you some relief.
