Re: Jessica Smith

Thank you all for your kind words of love and remembrance of our beloved Jessica. I read last night the post she wrote the evening of her admission to ICU, saying I would be picking up the thread and keeping you posted...this broke my heart because if she asked me to do this, I do not remember. I ha...

Re: Barium and stomach pain/obstruction?

Barium always caused me rediculas gas. One of the times this last summer that I had a blockage and went in to the ER with horrible abdominal pains the contrast completely cleared me out. They gave me a yellowish-clear contrast in two-1 liter bottles right before a CT scan to dx the cause of the pain...

Re: Finally got the update done... Hope it makes sense.

P.S. Bump behind my ear is a skull bone met. 6mm lesion in Right Temporal lobe. Never had a Brain scan, so no way of knowing how long that has been there. Was that the needle that broke the camels back?

Finally got the update done... Hope it makes sense.

Friday was a very crazy day, I had been up since 2am trying to control the pain and anxiety with little relief. While I was getting ready to go in for the Thoracic and Head MRIs, the nurse of a Rad Onc at Mayo called and asked me to rush in because the Rad Onc wanted a consult before the MRI, which ...

Re: Don't tell me...

Usually I had been ok in just ignoring these comments but this last month I couldn't handle it. Over the last few weeks when I have had extreme back pain I kept saying to those very close to me something isn't right, this isn't normal back pain. My hubby was the only one who agreed with me, the othe...
