    I'm so sorry, Judy.

    I wish that I could lift some of this pain from you.  Do you have any medications that can help?  I found that working with a pain management doctor helped me quite a bit.  I've taken both Vicodin and oxycodone for pain issues at different times in this process, and although they do have their own side effects, they can also help take the edge off the discomfort.

    Thinking of you, dear lady.  Sending some hugs your way.

    Judy, I've been wondering how

    Judy, I've been wondering how you're doing.  Sorry to read that your having a hard time.  How is the breathing and shortness of breath?  I remember you mentioning that they may do a procedure to help the heart failure issue.  Has that been done?  Have you been teaching?

    Thank you, all

    Thank you all for responding. I had the heart procedure done a couple of weeks ago. There is no heart dz, just a minor enlargment due from stress. This will go away on its own. Yes, I am back in school. We are concerned that being off the avistan for eight weeks this summer changed the way the avistan is going to work now.

    Lets hope not....

    ...And you can still benefit from the meds. I'm glad you feel a little better and I wish that you continue on with your improvements.

    I had a bile stent blockage

    I had a bile stent blockage followed by systemic infection with 2 different bacteria starting Labor Day. Since then it has been 9 days of nauseau, vomiting, tremendous abdominal cramping and no appetite. Slept in a chair last night due to abdominal cramps. Feeling a bit better today but have at least one more week of IV antibiotics. Get better soon cause feeling terrible is very hard on the attitude. Lastly I was just getting accustomed to my new folfiri plus avastin chemo regimen which is now on holds.
