... before and it is quite frightening. My doctors are running tests, but they may take a while to get the results. If anyone on here has any advice or ideas as to what this could mean. That would be awesome. Thank you and God bless
I have no answer for this, Melissa. Are the nurses talking? Personally I would be kinda crazy and be demanding information. Too scarey not to know. Whatever is happening, looks Iike your stomach is really messed up. or perhaps your throat. Crazy ulcer? Your body has taken quite a hit with the meds. I wish I knew. Stay strong. Karen
Melissa - It is the week-end and hospitals run only emergency tests on week-ends, have you had an endoscopic exam yet? Until they figure out where the bleeding is coming from you won't get many answers. As endlesspred has mentioned please talk to the doctor and nurses about what is going on. They will tell you all that they know right now... but you are right they may not have all the tests dones or the results back. I hope you are resting more easily now that you are in the hospital. How is the breathing?
Started off today with blood tests and a round of Chemo. The results from my Cat scan are back. Not as good as I would hope for them to be. My kidneys are failing. I am going to need a transplant. The sad thing is i dont have much family. So there is no one close to me that could possibly donate. and to be honest, i dont think i would want my family to do that even if they could. My fiancee said he wanted too. But he is a different blood type, so not a match. But it is so sweet that he would do that for me if he could. My fiancee.. now that has a nice ring to it. lol. There are several tumors that were found. One in my lungs, some on my kidneys, and a small tumor in my brain. The doctors are telling me that it is not good. They are remaining optimistic. Hoping for the best. But the truth of the matter is im getting worse. The cancer come back so quickly and is only getting worse. Addison had the same happen to her.
Her leukemia was so bad when they found it that it was too late for treatment. Her kidneys gave out and there was no one that could donate. They put her on the transplant list but she was gone a few months later. I hate to think like this, but i feel like i will be the same. The doctors are telling me not to give up, but in the same sentence they are saying that its not looking good for me. 5 months at the most. If it keeps progressing as much as it has been, then it will be a lot sooner than that.
I dont worry so much about me. I am very strong in my faith. I know that when i go, no matter if it is tomorrow or 50 years from now, i will be going home to the Lord where i will be reunited with my daughter. My fiancee is the one that i am worried about. I dont want to leave him. I cant bare the thought of how hurt he will be once im gone. I know that God will lead him through. He is also very strong in his faith. I know that he will be ok. but i also know that it will be hard on him. I dont know. Maybe all of this sounds premature to be thinking about now. But its how i feel, so i shared it.
Congratulations on the proposal! Wish you were feeling better!
I had thyroid cancer and just finished some treatment. I'm waiting for results from a full body scan. It's great that you have faith in the Lord! I am a Christian myself and feel like the Lord is getting me through all this. I will never be alone because of him. I'm always wondering what he is planning next. Since I found out I had cancer, I have felt very calm and not worried because I know he is in control. I'll say a prayer for you.
Hope you feel better soon! Take care,
Yay for chemo!!! Sitting here getting chemo pushed into my body through IV. Adam is at work but he will be back in an hour. I still have 3 more hours of this to go today. Started reading Francine Rivers the mark of the lion series. So far, it is very good! My best friend/ sister went and bought me a wedding dress. It is absolutely beautiful. I'm so excited! 5 more days until I'm a married woman!!!
