  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 t
  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 proble
  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 rig

    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 t

  21. Hi Francine, Good to hear from ya and boy I can certainly identify with ya, I'm now day 12 past WBR and it's been the same. Nausea, fatigue and yea at times can't get the head to move.

I also eat the small meals, lots of soups, jello's, cravings for sweets, and some really wierd stuff like king crab legs and lobster , I don't know, and just keep trying to eat something. I see my doc on Wed. for an update so I''ll ask questions. anyway, be well Francine and know your not alone, your in my praye
  22. Hi Tbone; Sorry I'm late on this!!, But I've been going through pretty much the same thing then some. , Was really happy to finish up the 20 th treatment and then hell broke lose. I got real sick to my stomach on that last day, and spent the next 4 days being sick and fatigued. Could hardly move at times and most of what I tried to eat came back up. I was told it would take 7 to 10 days to start feeling better. It 's now 12 days and yea feeling better but it's God auwful slow. Also, alot of problems staying focused on something, hav'nt been on the net as aresult, and I get a very s

    Suggestions?

    Hey T, Going through, almost the same thing, accept my appitites bin in the pits for 3 weeks now! I finished up WBR last Wed. and have been struggling since. Today' is better, Also, sinus issue's, headaches and very tired. I'm down to 1/2 decadron a day now and I was told this will help and was also told that after effects take 7 to 10 days. I was given chlorpheniramine for the sinus and was taking it at night. I have dreams at night of a thick juicy STEAK! , anyway, wanted to let you know your not alone! Best to you, and good luck wth your lung treatment. God bless and be we
