 I go in for paracentasis tomorrow. In plain English it means they will be draining fluid build up in my belly and right lung pleura.  Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers that I get the relief I so desperately need. The last couple of months have been the biggest challenge of my life.  I miss you all. I have been following just not posting.

We miss you too Jeff.  My husband is having a rough time now too.  I hope tomorrow is a good day all along.  Prayers and warm thoughts for you.

I had 4 liters of fluid drained on Monday.  Unfortunately the bloated belly is back already.  I hope you have longer relief.

Jeff, you reached out to me in some of my most anxious moments... I will never forget that!

I am praying for you, praying hard. I am asking for you to not only get relief, but that you get on top of this battle again.

Thank you for being a friend, God bless you.

No luck today. Not enough fluid to drain WTF. AlL the bloating is inflamed tissue. I am just supposed to live with it. My onc said to supplement with Boost or Ensure and start me on Fentynal patch. Great more drugs.

I know sarcasm when I hear it! Not a fan of Ensure, especially warm like they gave it to me in the hospital.

The bloating started out on my right side in the cavity where the 2 ribs that they removed used to be. Apparently fairly normal for that type of operation my oncologist and surgeon confirmed. It gradually moved to my upper abdomen and suddenly since my last treatment my lower abdomen got really bad. I emailed my concerns to my oncologist again yesterday. he said he would like to get my surgeons opinion. My surgeon couldnt offer an opinion until I get a scan. So they are setting up a scan now. It is definately nerve wracking and stressful. Not to mention very uncomfortable and painful at times. I cant stand to even look at myself in the mirror. Not because of vanity but it is scary to look at how much I have changed in a short time.

to see ourselves with all of the scars criss-crossing our bodies, and now you have to deal with bloating, which disfigures you even more. And like you say, its not so much vanity but what Cancer has created; almost a monster; some kind of Frankenstien. 

I hope the can expidite your can and get you in today or tomorrow. The sooner the better. The sooner you know what is happening the better. 

Cyber hugs!

to read about all you've been going through.  I can't begin  to imagine how painful and frustrating it must be for you. I join everyone in hoping you can get the scan you need pronto and that the doctors can  find a way to get rid of the bloating  and give you some relief.

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 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.

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.

Sorry this chemo is kicking your butt Jeff.  After all this time, it would only be fair if it was easy on you.

cyn has a rice recipe that may help. Ive yet to make it for my husband but will be soon.

enjoy your weekend and prayers for good scan results.

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 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.

You've certainly earned something on the enjoyable side of the scale, I hope all your cravings are fulfilled. Then I hope you get more cravings, sort of a non-vicious cycle of stuff you like and can have. Hang tough Jeff.............................................Dave
