I just wanted to welcome you to the community and say that I am so sorry to hear about your father. I have my fingers crossed that his numbers continue to get better and better. Give him positive support and love. My thoughts are with you all! Please keep us posted and take care.View Thread
I'm so sorry for all of your searching and wish that I had answers for you. You really might want to try posting in the WebMD Pain Management Community for expert insight. I apologize for not thinking of this before. You and your husband are in my prayers. ((gentle hugs))View Thread
I'm sorry to hear of your concerns and wonder what your doctor says about this question. If chemo is helping you, why would it not be worth it? I wish that I had more personal experience or insight and hope that your doctor can give you more insight. I can give you my thoughts and prayers. Please take care and let us know how you are today.View Thread
I'm so sorry to hear about your mother and will pray that her surgery goes well. It sounds like her doctors are still unaware of what will need to be fully done as far as the surgery. I'm sure after things are more conclusive, they will be able to prepare you more for her road to recovery. Please keep us posted and my thoughts are with her and your family.View Thread
How are things going? Unfortunately, we no longer have an expert in this community at this time. I hope that his doctor was able to give more advice as to taking the next steps. Please keep us posted. Your husband is in my prayers.View Thread
I guess I would just try to give him as many options as possible because it sounds like it is a mindset issue along with a fear of uncomfortable bowels. My heart goes out to you and I have been in your position. It is not easy. Whatever he will accept, I would think that is best. I'm not a medical professional, but feel your pain and wish the best for your father, you and your family. Take care and hang in there. (((((hugs))))))View Thread
I'm so sorry for your pain and hope that you feel better soon! I will keep my fingers crossed that your symptoms are nothing serious. Have spoken to your doctor about the possibility of a hernia or kidney stone? I'm not a medical professional by any means, but have read that sharp pains in the stomach are side effects of each.
I'm sorry that we cannot, but I do want to offer you hope and prayers from myself, personally. I will keep your father in my thoughts as well as your family. I'm not a medical professional, but your description does not seem like something that can be solved on line. Only his doctors that give him examinations and have his medical history can give you somewhat of an understanding. My heart is with you all. Please take care! ((((soft hugs))))View Thread
I'm sorry that we no longer have a medical professional in this community, though we are in the process of finding one at the moment. I hate hearing that your husband is having such a rough time and hope that others in the community can give some advice as to a comfortable diet. From what I have read, it seems that all conditions are different as far as returning to "normal".
I'm sorry that I do not have more advice to give, but you are both in my thoughts and prayers. ((((hugs))))View Thread
