TAnn Posted December 12, 2005 Share Posted December 12, 2005 Friday, I was feeling some pain in my right side just below my rib cage. By 4:00am Saturday morning, I could not roll over in bed, much less get myself out, so off to the ER we went. I was having horrible pain so they took blood and x-rays of my chest and abdomen. The x-rays came back "normal", but it felt like I had an exploding football in my abdomen. My blood work came back and my liver values were off the charts. They said the pain was definately in my liver and the liver was having trouble because of the chemo. They send me home with morphine for the pain. I took 1 30mg pill of the morphine Saturday night and slept pretty well. Sunday morning I woke up feeling horrible and ended up vomiting all day, apparently from the morphine. (I told that doctor that I can't take those hard drugs!) Today I'm feeling a little better. The pain is better and I can move around almost like normal. This last Alimta treatment has really done a number on me. I'm thinking I'll ask my doctor for a break on my next appointment. Don't think my body can handle much more of this......
