Re: Pain following right hemicolectomy

Had 9 cm mass in Cecum. I was in hospital about 7 days. They released me with ibuprofen and Tylenol 3. Worthless. I had pain for a long time. Since I wasn’t on a “good” pain relief med, I had pain but my bowel habits were “ok.” It’s going to take time, try to relax and just get through each day. I a...

Lung nodule

Hello! Well, got a lung nodule. It wasn’t there on my scan at MD Anderson 4/17. It’s 7 mm. Oncologist tomorrow. Our family actually moved from TX to S.C. to be near family. My husband unfortunately had two TIAs in January, and had an abnormal brain MRI. He’s going to see a neurologist soon. We have ...

Re: Train wreck!

I feel as you do. It’s hard to enjoy much after staring into the black abyss. One of my chemo nurses told me that “tomorrow is promised to no one.” No one. Not the healthy, the sick, the rich, the poor, the old, the young. We get accustomed to taking tomorrow for granted. I believe in God and heaven...

Re: Possibly unnecessary open liver surgery

I was supposed to have a complete hysterectomy a few weeks ago, and I postponed it due to the illness of my son. My surgery was to be open, due to the nature of my abdomen after 3 abdominal surgeries including the colon resection. The surgeon said, she doesn’t know what’s inside after all the prior ...

Re: Tribute to my dear friend Anne - aka BeansMama

RIP dear Anne, "I am standing upon the seashore. A ship, at my side, spreads her white sails to the moving breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength. I stand and watch her until, at length, she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky com...

Re: Pain control after abdominal and rectal surgery

When I was released after my resection, the surgeon had cut me open from just below my navel to almost the top of my public bone. I was give Tylenol and Motrin and had to embarrass myself to get Tylenol 3 for 10 days. I have no history of drug addiction or pill problems, but my nurse daughter said a...

Re: Son is ill and I am scared

Thank you Tracy. I feel selfish complaining here among those fighting for their lives, losing loved ones, and our own dear members departing, but it’s so scary. I know this sounds awful but I’d rather have health issues and deal with them than watch my 20 year old really struggle, and having the spe...

Re: Focal Thickening of the Sigmoid Colon

Just chiming in to say Dr.Google is a jerk.

February 8th will be here soon. I know it seems like forever. Doesn’t it seem that the medical system works so very very slow as we twist in the wind? I hope the best for you, and feel your pain.
