You're back. Fantastic news on the old histology- NO SPREAD.
i know how you feel ( sort of- the onlooker) , so much bad stuff, then bingo, it starts to turn upward, you almost feel like saying "ye whatever" as so much of the earlier stuff is pants. Weird. Also , I think we were bracing ourself for more doom n gloom, it's not like you don't belive them, but we were waiting for a BUT. Very strange when there isn't one.
I think infection, somewhere in the bod, is pretty usual after this sort of thing. Considering what is done. Husband had a bit of chest post op, but nothing major.
Now , the cough, I swear I am going to do for him myself (: (:. The night feeds certainly made it worse, but it is still ongoing, not as bad, but bad for me.......medics are not concerned, say all the bod takes months to settle down, have told him to eat less at meals... hahahaa. They say it is post nasal drip, there is certainly a lot of that....urg. But they have put him on a steroid inhaler, just to stop all the irritation vis a vis, will stop irritating me!!!
You have probably seen a few newbies joining the thread. That will be me ' inviting' people over, I know it is your threat I have hijacked. I just thought that I see so many 'single' posts about OC that it would be good if we were all on same board, for better or for worse.
As for the weight, it was the 2 nd lot of FLOT that caused the loss, with rubbish appetite , nausea and smaller stomach. We used about a week of overnight feed, but just half of what we used before. It was just to take the 'pressure' off having to eat when feeling pants. His weight is stable again now at 89kgs (95kg at diagnosis and pre op). We found the jej tube quite useful for shoving water down, to help with dehydration after the chemo. Not prescribed, our own idea, but really did the trick.
yep, I think rollercoaster was something I coined, probably not original (:
We have been on several over the years, but one of the absolute worst ones was in Disney. A turtle like thing, that spun on its axis as well as going upside down, round and round, with all images/film on the wall of the ride. The car in front of us was having sick hosed off it !!! That should have been fair warning. It is far far worse that that Oblivion. Putting this process into the equation, husband reckon the turtle was worse!!!!
We are in the wtf just happened stage.(:
Our final decision on our celebration for getting through this is a new tattoo each- can't wait. We - well more me, i do like the old tats(: not the love/hate on the knuckles type though- LOL sorry if you have them!
