So I'm waiting on appointment with surgeon which is the 28th.

Until then, in misery with much pain as things pass through the colon tumor, WHAT? You can't hear my cries of agony??  Trust me, they are there.

    Plan of Action

    I realize when my husband is asking me if he should drive me to the emergency hospital, that maybe my pain is really showing (could be all those OMGod's and Sweet Jesus refrains that keep leaving my mouth, plus the moaning and writhing in pain). So I emailed my oncologist asking if he could give me a prescription for stool softners and pain pills.  We shall see, why oh why did I wait until it got worse on the weekend?

    Woes and groans.

     

    Re:

    “why oh why did I wait until it got worse on the weekend?”

     

    I’ve found that as I got older, the weekends got closer together.

     

    Every time I’ve been hospitalized, it was on a late Friday evening, and too often, just prior to Christmas.

     

    You’re part of “the club”; Welcome!

     

    Seriously, I have some hydrocodone I can overnight to you; I’m not sure if you can use ‘em as a suppository?

     

    (ouch)

     

    Think “healed”,

    I hear them, darling....

    But stand helpless nearby.  My tumor was in a place where EVERYTHING passed it....nasty....so I can relate just a bit to your suffering!!!

     

    I still needed to work, so I would keep a 'maintenance dose' of Ibuprophen on board at all times, and then, when I would get to my destination for the day, I would take a Vicodin.  It's much easier to cover a breakthru pain spike going from 4 to 8 with strong drugs, than to try to go from 0 to 8 without that 'maintenance level' pain med control already on board...

    Love you, dearest....

     

    Hugs, Kathi

    I hope you have something by now for pain. It seems to get bad so fast! If you are like me you think it will be better next time, then next time it's worse. Hope you get some relief.

    So sorry you are going through this.  Go to ER if you don't hear from doc. You are not alone in having things happen on weekends!

    Dear Winter Marie

    So very sorry to hear that you are in so very much pain. 

    Perhaps a trip to the ER would be a good thing to do...the tumor plus anything in the "pipeline" may be causing an obstruction which is more than you can handle with stool softeners.  It may also get you fast tracked for that surgery to get that tumor out.

    Praying that you get relief soon.

    Hugs,

    Marie who loves kitties

    Agree with Marie...

    you shouldn't have to suffer.  If not the ER, get those pain meds STAT!  Hoping that you feel better soon!

    Ow! You have my empathy

    Having been in a situation where no pain relief worked (major anal fissure) so any bathroom runs were a cause for tears and follow-up in the fetal position.  It was so bad that when my husband went to the bathroom, I had empathy pains, and moaned in true agony.  I hope that they can get the pain under control, and address all issues quickly.

    Sending gentle hugs and lots of understanding,

    So sorry

    Please get some relief.  You should not have to suffer.  Get on the Dr and have him make it happen.  I am so sorry you are suffering.

    I'm sorry you're in so much pain, WM.

    Four more days to surgery must seem like an eternity to you.  Any chance for pain meds?  When I was in the midst of a lot of cancer growth, and had some pretty significant pain, I was given oxycodone.  It worked fairly well (although in my case it caused physical dependency in about two weeks, but if you only take it for a few days, just to get to surgery, that shouldn't be an issue).

    Strength and hugs coming your way~AA

    Another thought...

    maybe consider putting yourself on a liquid diet at this point?  Totally sucks, I know (worst part of the surgical ordeal for me), but it might really reduce the pain.

    I also agree with Marie .. a

    I also agree with Marie .. a trip to ER sounds like the place to be.  I was in the same pain you are discribing at one point in my journey, and that is exactly what happened .. fast tracked and relief! 

    My best to you for quick resolution!

    Cool

    4 more days just to see the surgeon, don't know surgery date, am assuming since have been off chemo since part of April, the stupid tumor keeps growing.  Will probably do the liquid diet, seems like that may be the easier way to go (pun intended).

    Thank you everyone, here's to the pain getting better at some point soonest.
