Hello Friends..well,I was in the hospital twice in the last 2 months. The chemo is not kind to me these days.
I will be stopping chemo..my onc says it is really taking a toll on my body. Getting much to hard to deal with.
My Onc seems to think it is time to start Palliative Care. Our local Hospice handles the Palliative Care Service.
The nurse practioner was out to visit last week. We discussed my fatigue, nausea & vomiting and most of all
the pain. The most important is for me to get the pain under control. After our meeting she talked to
my Onc and they both agreed that I need to be on Methadone for the pain. I started it on Thursday
and I was told it takes up to a week for me to start feeling the effects. Please keep your fingers crossed
that it helps. I really like the nurse assigned to me .... we get along well. Also, when & if the time comes,
the transition to hospice will be easy.
I am sorry I have been bad about answering posts....I will try to be better !
Love and Hugs
Sometimes it is a slender thread, Sometimes a strong,
stout rope; She clings to one end, I the other;
She calls it friendship; I call it hope....
