kimmek Posted November 2, 2004 Share Posted November 2, 2004 Hi Home from the hospital to clean up a bit and wanted to post an update on mom for those of you follwing her unrelenting pain. Went to ER monday morning as pain was not getting any better. Erays showed her to have partially obstructed bowel. This was no surprise has bad as she has been constipated. Did another ct scan and other than still showing "NED", no other signs of explaination of pain. The bowel can cause the pain in her tummy, and maybe the back, but the doctor wants to do a MRI this morning to rule out a tumor or something/anything on her spine or in her back. From her description of the pain and area (mid to upper right side )in her back, drs things maybe just bad pulled muscle. I just want to find out the reason and get it taken care of. I cannot handle seeing mom in pain like this. The doctor also wants her on no more narcotics as those combined with the chemo, and other rx's is what caused the problem. But thats so hard, when you still hurt like ****. Mom has a terrible fear of MRI(she has never had one) but doctor is giving her ativan and morphine in her IV to calm her and help her to lie flat. Please pray that Mom is able to do this. Thanks for listening and caring God Bless Kim Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
