  11. Hey all, Having a time of it, In March, I found myself in a Costa rican hospital unable to swallow, could'nt eat or drink, got back to the states and was in the hospital for the next 15 days. The tumor in my chest has been wreaking some havoc. It's closed off the esphoughages (sp) and theres a hole ( fistula) sp? that allows fluid to enter my only good lung. I'm presently hooked to a machine to get the nourshment I need, It Really sucks, I could use a good Texas steak. The plan is to reduce the tumor with chemo, and insert a sleeve so I can eat again. Be a few more weeks. The whole thing has had me pretty depressed and I really do thank you all for the cards and letters and Fay for the chickens. God bless and be well Bobmc left pneumonectomy 5/2/01, brain mets, 12/18/03, WBR, 2/04 chemo- 5/1 for mediastinum tumor " absolutely insist on enjoying life today"
  12. Hi all; And yea still in the hospital. Had some barium swallow tests today. Seems that I'm not getting food to the stomach. It goes either directly into the lung or is exaspirated. The overall plan right now is to get a feeding tube in as I have not eaten in a week now. Yea this does suck. Of course the million dollar question is why or better yet what can be done to correct. It seems from last weeks scans that the lympth nodes, ( suspect ones in center of chest) may be pressing against the esoghogus or connection. The node is suspect of being hot and its growthmay be causing the problem. Guess, I'm just looking for 2nd opionions on this, think I need to get a thoracic surgeon in on this. Rather, than either radiation or chemo. I would more than anything like not have this feeding tube a perminent thing. Or rather see if anyone has experienced anything similiar. As it stands, theres no set plan for this and I still have MRI' s coming up to see if brain mets were taken care of. any help would be appreciated. much on my plate right now!!

  13. Oh well, live and learn, Managed to take a turn for the worse and wound up with some severe breathing problems in Costa Rica, Sat. night was spent in the Hospital there and dx.ed with pneumonia. A bit scary, I must say. I managed to get a flight into JFK and got right to a Jersey Hospital on Mon. AM, Seems that, I'm aspirating fluid from the stomach into the lung causing the the quick onset of problems. Seeing, a gastric specialist next. I have also seen my pulmonologist, med. onc. and GP today, so gettin some answer's and guess things are just the way there suppost to be right now. I'm trying to work a lap top from the Hospital, and my skills at this are not the best but will try to get on chat tonight. No regrets, time to heal up for golf. God bless and be well!

    Bobmc?

    Hey T, Thanks for the concern, Yea, the last couple of weeks have been a bear , You know, fatigue, nauseas, no concentration, etc. but it's been gettin better. Dean's got it right though, I'm packing, actually done, and need to be at JFK, in NY at 2:00AM, real early flight, but that gets me to Costa Rica at 10; 00AM and I should be able to get my jeep, and make the Pacific coast by 1: 00 PM , Hopefully, I'll be in a hamock by 2:00 and screw everything else. I had scans done on Mon. but do not have the results yet, these were of the chest, abdomen and pelvis. I see my doc again on the 15th. I'm lettin go and lettin GOD right now!!! ; I will be staying at the hotel Karahe ( www.karahe.com ), and I think either they have one or there is an internet cafe close by so I'll try to get online down there. Anyway, be well, God bless and still trying to enjoy the shi_ out of life! lBobmc- NSCLC- stageIIB- left pneumonectomy- 5/2/01 MRI's taken 12/18/03 - 2 brain mets found- named em Frick & Frack PET taken 1/5 - hot spot in mediastinum May be cancer??
