Re: Today, My Pain Mgmt is Like...

Thank you both for your replies/responses. I am glad to be one step closer to home. I have a new friend named "squishy pillow". I use it to bolster my abdomen since 30-40 staples are holding me together. They come out next Tuesday. Still healing up, so not sure what is post-surgical pain and what is...

Re: Today, My Pain Mgmt is Like...

Hi Folks, I am glad to let you all know that after a few days in ICU I was able to go back to a normal room and a few days after that I got to leave the hospital. The pulmonary embolism is very real, as were the two continuous blood clots in my legs which span all of the vein and like to flap. I tri...

Re: Today, My Pain Mgmt is Like...

Things have taken a less than optimal turn.

I have been moved to ICU for monitoring for my new pulmonary embolism. I should be fine, but a very rough time as the surgeon decided to remove my appendix and repair my mid-gut malrotation.

Type to y'all soon.

Re: Today, My Pain Mgmt is Like...

Hi folks, A quick update: Adrian, I think the Lidocaine patches work because the area of the pancreas is the second most nerve dense area in the body. The nerves aren't all buried as deeply as the pancreas, so spasms originating from nerve issues may be soothed topically (which apparently makes sens...

Re: Chemo

My in-laws believe everyone can be healed using non-pharma means. I have tried to explain how pancreatic damage works, but I guess I am not willing to give up certain things. I gave up my love of wine and rum. I gave up my occasional cigar. I don't want to give up my food. I dislike hearing how I ca...

Re: Gutted.... but thankful

Jane, I was wondering about the beaten child and the paralysed child. Have they recovered? I have been hoping you would mention them. So very glad everyone is doing so well! Especially Harry and Alan...lol, and most especially Jane! Lol, great flu test. I failed, but I would normally fail that one. ...

Re: Vaping

My husband feels your pain. It has been an ugly fight here in the US. The last several years have seen the Tobacco companies fight tooth and nail to get rid of the vape industry any way they can. I hope you don't get taxed too crazily. California is taxing its residents up to 36% for now-legal marij...

If the rum is alcohol free, I definitely want to hear about it.
