I rang that Bell loudly...even my hubby got to ring it for me. There were tears of joy in all our eyes. And the Doc was so proud of me as he said people who do chemo/rad have a very tough time. So Bell has rung finishing that step, now to see what the scans tell us, if it is NED.
I asked my hubby if he wanted to watch one session and he said no, he sees me in enough pain without seeing why. Matt you were blessed your wife sat in on a session.
MRSBD I was wondering the same thing, if my stomach was stopping working due to the chemo or the pain pills I was on. I am on the same medication you mentioned in your reply. They said if I can eat by mouth and gain a few pounds they will take it out. I hope they do but hard to eat when throat so sore can't swallow medicine. I go back in to the the GI doc on the 21st.
Phrannie, my normal weight is around 30 pounds...I gained up to 156, as doc suggested they wanted me to gain more before treatment started, now I am down to 126 and they think I should gain about 10 pounds. My brother went from 172 down to 120 and now back around 140.
Bill, I feel like a little engine that could, as several times I begged my hubby to let me stop and it was so hard on him to help me get dressed and force me to go, I am glad he did, and I tell him everyday how sorry I am and for him not beat himself up, as he loves me so much.
Hondo, there were so many tears of joy when I rang that bell and when I walked into the lobby they were all clapping and wishing me well. I told them I knew I was a pill and thanked each and everyone of them for putting up with me. Delayed stomach is when the stomach muscles stop or slow down and won't let the food drain down like it should, so what ever I put in my PEG tube just sits and sours. Until I either get sick or drain it.
Debbie start doing that happy dance as I completed all of phase on they said. Tests soon to see if the they got it all or I may need the surgery, my face rather swollen yet and my neck is so horribly burnt.
I would not have made that trip with out the support of God, my family, my friends and all of on here whom I call my friends as well. Everyone on this site is just amazing, and as beautiful inside as you are outside !
Prayers and Hugs !!! Kritter
