TAnn Posted March 23, 2006 Share Posted March 23, 2006 Thank you so much Don and Lucie for posting my update and for your continued support. Lucie calls and checks on me about once a week and I really enjoy talking to her. She is such an amazing woman. I went to the ER yesterday and they thought the pain might be coming from my liver, so they did an ultrasound. Liver is all clear, but by then the department for the pericentesis was closed so I had to go back today for them to drain it. When I was in the hospital, only 1 month ago they removed 2 1/2 liters of fluid. In only 1 month the fluid was back and today they removed 1 1/2 liters. Since I'm no longer hooked up to the "good pain killers by IV, I'm feeling very sore, but the actual procedure went well. Thank goodness I didn't have to stay in the hospital. My husband has been juggling work and sooo many trips to the hospital, he has been so wonderful through it all. But I can see the stress it is causing and it makes me feel so bad. The caregivers are such an important part of this process. Thanks to you all. I go back on Friday for a new ct of the chest and mri of the spine, then get the results from my doctor next Wednesday. That is when we will discuss what comes next for me. He is proposing Gemzar without the Carboplatin and lowering the dosage. I'm still unsure if my body can handle any more chemo, but I don't really see any other choice. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers, it helps more than you know. Keepin up the fight, Teri Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
