Re: After HAI

So scans are coming but we were hit with another bombshell...

Re: My CRC with liver mets journey

it is hard to not feel like our fates are intermingled. I like to think of myself as a very empathetic person where DH is concerned. I feel a lot of random things and when I talk to him about it its something that he's feeling or felt. It makes me nervous sometimes. Recently though DH lost his gran...

Re: After HAI

Did any of you with the pump ever experience some liver pain while getting your pump chemo? DH has been struggling a little with that and a 2 week long stint of morning sickness while the chemo works through his liver. He refuses to take anything and has tried a bunch of other tricks that don't see...

Re: After HAI

He thinks this happened because he pushed himself to hard physically to get better quicker from surgery. Example: BEFORE surgery he would walk on the treadmill (during crappy weather) at 1-2 mph AFTER surgery he pushed himself up to 4-5 mph Whoa! That's a big change! Tell him he needs to go sloooow...

Re: After HAI

Ugh. That sounds gross. Hope it clears up quickly! It sounds worse than how it looks. We will probably find out the results of them testing it Monday. He seems to be doing better although I attribute that to actually taking his antibiotic at home this time. He thinks this happened because he pushed...

After HAI

So questions abound. I try not to stress over too much, after all Christmas is around the corner and my wonderful husband had the greatest surgery to get him on track for a long life with his nagging wife :) He has been losing a lot of weight, his appetite after surgery hasn't been at 100% but 4 wee...
