    Pain is getting better. I

    Pain is getting better. I think the patch and the diuretics are helping. Almost done with 4th of treatment. It went surprisingly well with the nausea. The only bad thing was about 8 hrs of hiccups which have finally stopped. Scan next Wednesday the 10th at 8am. I have my sleeves rolled up and ready to fight.

    This past treatment was

    This past treatment was BRUTAL. Worse than the last treatment which I didn't think was possible. I had to have 2 days of IV fluid again.. diarrhea nausea constipation  urinary tract infraction you name it and I probably had it. The edema around my belly is getting. I eat lots of very tiny meals followed 1/2 fighting off nausea.. there were 2 nights that I didn't know if I would make it through the night. Either trying to stay awake or taking 15 minute naps. I am doing much better now. Thank God. I have a scan tomorrow but don't get results until next Tuesday. I wanted to have as peaceful of a weekend that I could have.

    Dear Jeff,

    Are you getting chemo now?

    Not just the treatment but our nerves can make us feel terrible. I remember when I was diagnosed I could not sleep. I was walking up and down the living room and felt like if I stopped walking and massaging my body I will die. Great stress causes great panic in our body.

    I wish you some restful days and expecting some good news on Tuesday.

    I came on her go see what's

    I came on her go see what's really going on after your post on Facebook. They should have given you an emergency scan and something like ativan to relieve the naseau. Leaving someone scared and suffering is not cool. I am glad you got through the night. Now on to getting things better and better.

    I do have plenty of pain

    I do have plenty of pain killers and At Ivan along with all the nausea drugs. In fact I just got some refills today. My scan was already scheduled as a routine scan. I told my onc that we can still wait until Monday which I did just push up from Tuesday. I just wanted to get through the weekend first.
