Hi everyone. I just discovered this site and thought I'd join in. I was dx'd with stage 3c about 5 weeks ago. Had a very extensive surgery and have completed 1 taxol/carboplatin chemo cycle. I've had many complications since surgery, the main one not being able to eat or drink much on my own so I'm now getting total parenteral nutrition through my port. The problem isn't related to nausea, what happens is that I get filled up very quickly to the point of pain and distention after a very small amount of food. They have no explaination as to why this is happening, after a battery of tests but think it is related to my cancer. I've been in and out of the hospital 3 times in the last 2 weeks but am now home and am thankful for that much. I'm hoping to regain some strength before my next chemo which is in 10 days.
Just wanted to introduce myself and I hope to get to know many of you as we fight this disease together.
