Re: Meeting with liver surgeon tomorrow

It sounds as your DH has gotten the same advice regarding how to tackle the liver Mets and that he will be having the same routine as my DH had.
Best of Luck with the upcoming doctor visits and the Anniversery weekend !

Hi Melissa, Will be thinking of you on Sept 8 - hoping it will be a good meeting!! Tell your current Onc ?

Re: Husband broke down last night

mpbser,
It sounds as things are improving - so good to hear :)
My husband's surgeon 'prescribed' chewing gum already when hubby was in hospital recovering from surgery. I wonder if many others get that advice? Sounds as it worked great for your hubby.

Re: Husband broke down last night

mpbser,
So sorry your DH has to deal with more pain and discomfort. Sometimes it's hard to know what is causing symptoms (at times it can also be a side effect of Medications supposed to help?). Sending good wishes that both of you can catch a break soon !

Re: Husband broke down last night

mpbser, Totally understand the feeling! Disappointed is a polite word. I hope your DH will recover fast from the surgery today. I said I understand, because at my DH's 2nd surgery (open) it was planned to take care of the liver at the same time. Did not happen. Oh it felt like... :cry: He had to hav...

Re: Husband broke down last night

Hi mpbser, I am taking a brake from Colon Club at the moment but checked in today to see if your DH had had his surgery. I'm sorry your husband & you have to deal with this - a lot of emotions can surface before a mayor surgery. Having been in your shoes, I remember and understand, even though m...

The thing is that I can finally walk good enough to walk in my forest - and I have SO needed to take my walks in the forest to charge my batteries! I feel a lot better :-) We do say to others and we read, th...
