Re: O/T...Post Your Pics Here

I have an amaryllis growing. I may have been a week short planting it as I don't think that the bloom will be open on Christmas Day. I've been taking pictures of it each day with the plan of turning them into a mini time delay video. We'll see how that goes. Yes I am in the picture with Johnny Cash....

I had to give up driving my car....

.....this weekend. Thank you neuropathy. I have mentioned this before in other threads how I would hate if it happened and this week it did. On Wednesday I went to a company Christmas lunch. I could have taken the subway but I chose to do the 20 minute walk to get there and then back again because I...

Re: Sigh! Nervous again

Getting my 1 year colonoscopy tomorrow. Feeling nervous and scared again, even though I just had CT scan last month. I wish the scan is enough . The prep for colonoscopy is so gross . So hard to drink that stuff, still gotta drink the 2nd one at 2am. I’m already emptied out . Why must I do the 2nd ...

Re: I bought baby wipes and apple juice yesterday...

Scope is done. My surgeon says I need to have another one done. In 3 years!! I will talk to my doc and see what she thinks. Seems a bit long to me. I had a couple of issues with the prep. Yesterday afternoon I was absolutely famished by 5pm. Everything I looked at or did made me think of food. So I ...

Re: I bought baby wipes and apple juice yesterday...

Well, I didn't win a trip to Hawaii :x So now I'm preparing for tomorrow. Not that I need to, I have a nervous gut and get the runs any time I'm under stress. But the bonus is at least for this scope I'm at home, not hooked up to an IV pole having to share a bathroom with the other patients in the r...

Re: New symptom: swollen feet??

First of all, congratulations on being one step away from being finished chemo!!! That is such an accomplishment. I had the opposite reaction as you. For years now I have had very mild edema in my legs that drained every night, but during the 1 week in hospital on IV fluids while being diagnosed I h...

Re: Lymphedema

Lydia I am sorry to hear about your new challenges. What can help with lymphedema? Not knowing how severe it is (and more importantly not being a physician) I can only offer some general suggestions. Compression stockings may help, being sure to drink lots of water (assuming this won't cause problem...

Re: Adenocarcinoma and crohn's after surgery

..... I want clarification on few things: 1. Dose cancer completely out of her body after surgery? 2. Is it only life extending or cured or curable? 3. Do Crohn’s still be in her body after surgery? Or Does it come back after some time? 4. What she has to go through here after? 1) I don't think any...

Re: Strange new side effects with FOLFIRINOX

Kbelo I had the pulsing sensation in my feet after about round 7 or 8. To me it feels like when you're in an elevator that has just stopped and is making adjustments to level with the floor before the door opens. It took a while for me to realize it was related to sudden changes in my blood pressure...

.... They aren't on my normal shopping list, but I also bought this: http://i65.tinypic.com/34o3i47.jpg and I have some questions. 1) Are there any restrictions on flying after a colonoscopy?

Re: O/T...Post Your Pics Here

It's 35 degrees outside (that's F not C) so gardening has moved indoors. Well it actually moved indoors about six weeks ago. The eldest mobster decided he wanted to grow hot peppers this summer so he bought seeds on line from the Netherlands: Carolina Reapers and Ghost Peppers. https://pepperhead.co...
