Don Wood Posted July 8, 2003 Share Posted July 8, 2003 Well, we are in a funk here. Lucie has had a severe pain in her upper left thigh, near where the old tumor was. So we are going tomorrow for an MRI of the area, and naturally we think the worst. Also, when she was at the pulmonologist, he ordered a chest x-ray, and informed her yesterday there is a shadow at the top of her left lung (old news) and a spot on the right (new news). We see him Friday, and will let the onc know about this because he should take a look as well. More uncertain news. Then about six weeks ago, I had an artificial sphincter implanted to help my incontinence. I started passing blood clots three weeks after the surgery, which lasted just over a day, and finally cleared up. This delayed the activation of the sphincter until today. I just got back from the urologist, who tried to activate several times and because of inflamed tissue around the device, he couldn't get it to start. A BIG disappointment to me because I had high hopes this would take a strain off me. Anyway, I am now on antibiotics and go back to see him next Wednesday. We are very disappointed in this whole scenario and feel like this bad news is never going to end. It will just keep happening. Our minds know this isn't true, but our emotions are just raw right now. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we try to see some light at the end of this very dark tunnel. Thanks. friends.
