sad  I saw  the ent surgeon and then the oncologist last week ,that day i was just so sick i would of gladly layed down and died if they said i could ( i think it was moe from stress than the pain i have been in ).
The surgeon saw me first and told me he would want to certainly do some more biopsys before deciding on surgery .After i explained to him that the oncologist wants to see me before anything else is done .He said he would not do them until after i see the oncologist but would be available to do them if he wanted them .Atleast he expalined to me a couple more options rather than having my nose amputated ,but on reading up on them there is a great chance that the cancer will come back .
So now i see the oncologist and he now wants me to continue on the same treatment as i have been on for the past month ,he said the inflamation has cleared up  a lot even though it is by no means gone yet and he still can not see the cancer clearly .Then in a months time i go back to see the oncologist and then on to the surgeon who will do biopsys in the surrounding areas to see where the cancer has spread .
Mean while  each day i wake up vomiting i do not even get to sit up before it starts just rolling over sets it off now ,this comes after night after night with little to no sleep either because of the pain i am in or of the nightmares i have as a result of the stress and then the medication that i`m on .
I try to do my house work but after sweeping one floor i`m just so sick i have to lie down .Each day i take morphine for the pain but as time goes on it doesn`t help that much and i do not want to go and have it increased as i do not want to be knocked out by it .
The weather here has just been so hot the airconditioner just does not seem to be helping ,it`s hard to find a comfortable place just to relax there is just no escape from any of this .

Snowflake,

I am sorry you are still waiting to see Doc.

My sister's surgery date is February 16th.  So now we finally know the date.  Not that it makes looking toward the surgery fun but at least I have a date.

Hugs to you my friend and know I care.

Luvs ya

Hi Snowflake,

I just want you to know that I am thinking about you and praying for you.

I hope that everything goes well and that you don't have to go through the amputation.

Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Luv and hugs, Karen

Snowflake,
so sorry for all you're going through.
One thought about the morphine -- I think, though please double check with your doc, that as long as you can still feel the pain the morphine will not knock you out. Perhaps increasing it a bit would help you feel less pain without actually making you sleepier. I know that's been the case for me. Something to do with how the body uses pain meds differently when you're in pain. Also, pain usually makes hr go up, so that can also serve to keep you awake. Medicating to the point you hardly feel the pain at all anymore would probably put you to sleep, but just increasing a little to make the pain lessen maybe would be okay.

I'm not a doc or anything, though. Just someone who has had her own share of pain. Hopefully they can find something to work for you. I imagine it must be so hard to make such serious decisions while riddled with pain.

peace,
frances

Kitt now that you have a date your sister has something to look forward to .We are all keeping her in our prayers and hopefully things will start to go her way .she needs her strength for the surgery as it will probably be lengthy ..I saw the drs last week but have to wait until the 11th of feb before they do a series of biopsys i`m not that good at sitting around waiting for any thing let alone this but then the wait will be on for the results to come back but seeing they have already confirmed the new cancer this is just to see how far it has spread so they can decide on how much to remove .

Karen thank you for being there for me it is ever so much appreciated .
This morning i saw a psychologist as i know i needed someone to talk to about all of this and even she was shocked to hear what i have been through and am going through .Today we worked on the nightmares and the real reason why i am having them .
It became apparent to the two of us i have a pixation with anything being on my face or around my neck and this was put down to when i was abused having my face covered by a hand and arm and this is what i`m fearing now the fact that i am and will have some difficulty in just breathing.
I only hope this helps with them as i`m just so tired i`m finding it increasing hard to function .I`d be lucky to even have three hours sleep at night and none at all during the day anymore .
The heat here is just so bad usually the heat we have out here is really dry and this past week the humidity has been really high .out evaporative air conditioner out here is useless with these conditions and there is little relief.If only we had some of your wondeful snow about now it would be great .

Frances with reguards to taking the morphine i`m really scared that i will become addicted to it taking it as much as the dr has prescribed therefore i only take it when i just can`t stand the pain some days are ok but then others are just so difficult .With what i have written above in this post i will try and take more of the sleeping pills at night to see if it will help and if not then i will go back and ask the dr here about increasing them again or even just twisting the time and amount i have each day along with when i need it .I will see how things go trying this and see if it helps .Last night was a particualarly bad night with a lot of pain .Today i `m just so tired and have the worst headache from the time i left the psychologist .

Akram thank you i am sure i have a direct line to god and thank heavens we are not charged call charges to him .I know he is overseeing all that goes on and our lives are in his hands .Life has been difficult for a long time ,but then i think it could be a lot worse and there are many more people out there who have a lot worse than me .I just pray that this is all over soon i`m just too tired to fight anylonger.

Snowflake, I,too,am praying for you. In fact, I'll think I'll offer up a prayer. for all you.(maybe even a little selfish one for myself). Are we allowed to discuss faith/religion on this site? Carol
 
Edit:  Hi there.........here is what are rules state........... FYI per your question hun:
Limited religious references are allowed (ie. "my prayers are with you" or a brief quote as part of a larger post), but the forums should not be used to convert others.
 
Thank you for asking a very good question.

Hi Camagu, you can say stuff like 'im praying for you' or similar spiritual comfort, but you cant use the board to try and convert people or 'bible bash' them etc. many members are in fact christians and will respond with a spiritual comment, but there is no arguing over religion/politics etc- check the forum rules at the top to be sure.

I am also praying for you Snowflake, and as a fellow Aussie, im with you on feeling the heat. its a scorcher. I pray you get the relief you need, and fast.

Snowflake,

I am so glad that you posted. It was nice to hear from you. I am still thinking and praying for you. I hope that you are able to get some sleep and rest soon. I know how it is not to be able to sleep. That can only go on for so long and it really effects us.

I am glad that you got to see a psychologist and it sounds like you and her hit it off really well.

Take care my friend, and know that I am thinking about you.

Luv and hugs, Karen

Good Morning Snowflake,
 
Well it is cold here and the wind chill today is going to get into the minus zero range pretty fast as the wind is picking up. eyes
 
I have heard that your temps have been quite unbearable down there. cool
 
I am so proud of you for going to the therapist................it shows you know you need to work through your issues and you know we are all here for you every hour of every day.
 
You are so brave and you have been fighting this battle for along time.  I am sorry your biopsy is taking so long to get done and then the wait for the results.
 
Do your best and stay in the moment..............please do not overthink the using of your pain med.  You need it, and your not the kind to abuse it so please use it.  One problem at a time and don't worry about tomorrow, just live in today.  My famous last words...........now shout them back to me smhair .
 
I know it is much easier to say that then to do it but I am offering my prays for you. :-)
 
Luv ya my friend.
Kitt

I would just like to thank everyone in here firstly for their prayers and they are very important to me as they are to a lot of others .
The weather here has been so bad from one extreem to the next the past two days we have had violent storms in the evenings and there is considerable damage through out our little town but everone is alive and well thats the main thing .The little bit of rain was most welcome .
Last night wasn`t so bad i took all my meds and slept a lot better today it`s a little cooler so think i will go and have a bit of a lie down as i`m just too tired to do anything else .
So far today i cleaned the oven ,did the washing and pulled my son and his mates out of a bogg ( kids for you ) and not so long ago i picked up a bird who didn`t fare so well in the past storms i`m not sure it will even make it yet but atleast it is cool and comfortable just needs time to heal .
Tonight we are supposed to go to our sons home for dinner but not sure i will make it there yet will just have to wait and see how i am feeling by then .
Kitt about the meds it was the pharmacist who set me worring about the long term effects of the morphine along with the other meds i`m currently on and since then have been warned by a few other medicos of the same thing .The therapist gave me a cd yesterday to listen to daily on mindfullness last night i didn`t even get to the end of the first section before i was asleep ( the result of the meds ) but i didn`t have anightmare and for that i`m so thankful,just hope it continues the same way .
The therapist and i worked on them yesterday which i ended up with a bad headache but it was worth it .
I did realise i couldn`t do this on my own and needed someone i could talk to who could help in the way i needed .

Snowflake,
I'm glad to hear things are a bit better.

Unfortunately, my experience has been that pharmacists, and even certain doctors, are not always especially knowledgeable about narcotic pain meds. There are a lot of misconceptions out there & terms that do not mean the same thing are often used interchangeably. Unfortunately even certain medical people who do not routinely work with these type of medications seem to fall prey to misconceptions. I think usually Pain Specialists & Oncologists are the best as far as understanding what meds are out there & how the body responds to different meds and personally I tend to weigh their opinions more heavily.

Addiction is a bio-psychiatric condition. If you do not have a history of abusing drugs or alcohol, there is statistically almost no chance you will become addicted to morphine. It is ultimately up to you & your doctor. I just feel bad remembering how long I put off getting adequate treatment b/c I was sure I was going to become addicted.

If you are interested, there is a very through brochure about various pain treatments and their benefits & risks put out by the American Chronic Pain Association. It is very honest about a whole host of issues from addiction to dependence to tolerance and so on, as well as alternative treatments you might consider. Here's the link:
http://www.theacpa.org/news_viewitem.asp?id=207

Best of luck to you & I will keep hoping that things will keep looking up for you!
Frances

This past week i have been so sick not sure what is going on just seems to be so many different things going wrong with me .
I thought it was from the medication for the pain in my joints so i have stopped taking it but i still feel awful .
This morning hubby woke me at one am he was sick and needed some of his medication he has a problem where he gets reaally dizzy and starts to vomit but this usually settles with the medication ,only one problem he had run out of it and has not been back to the drs to et more ,so all i could do was give him some maxalon to get him through the night .This morning when i got up he had already gone to work so not sure if he has recovered or weather he went to work still sick knowing him .
So now i just feel awful in myself from the lack of sleep .
I have cut back on the morphine as i really don`t think i need it atm .it`s been a couple of days and i don`t think i`m in pain i`m sort of in the position atm i really don`t know what i`m feeling anymore .I sit here with a blankness to me ,i know the extreeme heat has a lot to do with it just waiting for the weather to change seasons now so it will cool down a little bit .
Well hubby has just walked in it was too much for him at work men can be so stubborn sometimes.

Hi Snowflake,

I am so sorry that you are having such a hard time. I hope that it is nothing serious. Do you feel better when you cut back on the morphine? I wonder, is there any way they could switch you to oxycontin? It seems to give a little bit of energy. Not such a downer. Just a thought. Some people get nervous on it though. I wish there was a cure for cancer. This has to be horrible for you. I hope that the weather cools down for you. That would help so much.

I hope that things get better for you soon. I have been thinking of you a lot lately. Have your ears been ringing? Or is that when you talk about somebody?

I have been praying for you too. I have faith that things are going to get better for you. It will take a little time, but it will happen.

I have been tired lately too. I wish that I could send you some of this snow to cool you off. We have some piles that are six foot tall. I think that is from snowblowing the snow. It piles up. In some places they have to remove the snow because the banks are so high that you can't see if there is any traffic coming. One extreme to another I guess. In the summer I will be whining about the heat.

I hope that you are feeling better today. Keep us posted on how you are doing. Hopefully your husband can get to the doctor soon. I hate the thought of him suffering so. And you too. You don't deserve this.

Take care my friend,

Luv and hugs, Karen

Dear Snowflake,
You are one heck of a brave lady and you know you have my respect..........100%.  I am here for you and I know how long your have been suffering with this DD as Lyn always calls these nasty dx. 
 
I am praying for you and I think of you often wish there was some way I could ease your pain but know I support you.
 
Please do not suffer with the pain.  I am so proud of you for going to therapy.  It is exhausting for sure to let out all those feelings.
 
You are doing all you can to help yourself...........now gentle hugs to you and tell me if you have any roo stories.  You know I love them.
 
Hugs
Kitt

Maz i`m not sure what part of this hot island you are from but if in the heat wave i`m pretty sure down south .this week we recorded 59 in our back yard and all week it has not been below fifty .I think the weather man out here has his thermometer in his fridge for his daily recordings of 39 and so on but where we are in town it is certainly a lot hotter .There is little relief for anyone .Next week its going to be hotter as he has predicted 43-45 out here most days .I`m not planning on even going out the front door at all .With the swimming pool water temperature hitting 35 this week having a dip in the town swimming pool is not going to cool anyone off .
Stay cool .

Karen the snow does sound so inviting this week i have realised we need to go on a trip somewhere as the best air conditioning is in my car i have been running the kids around for this past week and it so much cooler in there than at home.
My son is not allowed to drive my car on his own at the present moment hubby has grounded him he went out driving through the bust a couple of weeks ago and staked one of the new tyers on a piece of wood .He has to realise how important the car is to us and that it`s not something he can drive around just where ever he wants ( his mate has an old toyota tray top which they all go driving in out bush this one is made for that sort of thing not our car ).
I think the main reason i have had the continual headaches and sick feeling is because it`s so hot not because i`m in that much pain .The morphine is there when i need it and i have another one there xalled Endone (Oxycodone) which the dr prescribed earlier only the reason i don`t take that one is because it makes me be sick all the time i can take one tblet now and then but even two in one day just is not done ,i took one yesterday in a bid to stop the headaches .
I got hubby into see the drs yesterday they were really good he just gave him a script for the medication and by the evening he was feeling much better .He went back to work this morning sso must be ok .
I can only wait for winter i really don`t mind the cold at least i can keep warm in the winter but summer it`s just so hard to stay cool .
I do hope you are feeling a lot better soon Karen .I was only thinking about our snowey mountains here but have no idea if they even have any snow on them this time of year .

Kitt seeing the therapist has bought out a few things that i have not thought about for a while this was the reason why i decided i didn`t want to see her after my first inital visit with her over seven months ago ,but not knowing that all this with the cancer was going to end up there with her . It`s funny how something so far back in my life can impact on me today i just didn`t even think about it when i started having the nightmares i just thought it was because i was frightened of having the nose amputated which i still am but that how the abuse and hw my face was covered then has really made things come to a head without me realising .I have not told hubby about what she said to me i`m not sure i even want to or need to .Apart from not wanting to intermit with him it has not effected us but in one way it has made him understand what i`m going through a bit better .
At the present moment i do not have another joey story for the life of me none comes to mind but at the moment i`m caring for my oldest daughters two little rabbits while she is away my only problem is my son has a dog he is such a wonderful playful dog and you see he is intent on letting the rabbits out of their cage he digs a hole at the side of their cage until they escape i have no idea how many times we have had to catch them in this past week but the dog gets tied up and punished for it but as soon as we let him off again he does it again .I will be so pleased when my daughter gets home from her holiday next week so she can have them back again .
Kitt how is your sister going i have been thinking and praying for her a lot over the past few weeks ,when is her surgery planned .I wish her well and hope that things improve for her one thing for sure she is so lucky to have a sister like you in her life .
Take care one and all.

Hi Snowflake,

I can only imagine what the heat is like. I can't handle a lot of heat, just as I can't handle a lot of cold. I feel bad that you have to endure that on top of everything else. I hope that you get some relief soon.

Does the oxycodone make you sick on the stomache? A lot of people have that problem. Nausea and stomache upset. I hope that the morphine is enough for you. The oxycontin is a long acting oxycodone, when my first husband had cancer, he tried it but he got sick on it, so stuck with the morphine. He did a lot of sleeping on that, but eventually that kind of went away for a while.

I hope that this finds you feeling well, keep us posted.

Luv and hugs, Karen

Karen when he first put me on the oxycodone i though it was going good only took one but it made me feel so light headed but it took away the pain but after taking the second one the nausea really set in wasn`t sure it was the meds at that stage so continued to take them but then after two days of vomiting i then thought of them so stopped them and sure enough i picked up a bit and now i find one is the limit for a couple of days so when the morphing doesn`t work so good i will then take one Oxycodone and things are ok but this time it really hasn``t made any difference .
The thing is i`m not sure i`m in pain i know my face just feels awful with a lot of pressure around my cheeks and one of my eyes and if i touch my nose it really throbs .Taking the medication does take this feeling away but it takes a while .At the moment i`m lying on my bed i have a bad head which i have had for a few days not even the morphine has helped it .Maybe if i just take another sleeping pill i will go off to sleep and feel better when i wake up again .

Snowflake, do you mind if i ask what type of cancer you have? you dont have to respond, its a personal thing, i understand if you dont want to talk about it- i used to nurse in oncology and was wondering about you.

Take care,

sorry it has taken me so long to get back in here but have been so sick ,in so much pain and the drs has no idea whats going on i have to go tomorrow for a whole pile of tests to see if they can find out more .but with the temperatures here hitting well into the fifties and having a high temp i feel so awful .
Today i had my second appointment with the psychologist and i think i cried most of the session so much came out in it but i just have so much going on at the moment .

Maz the cancers i have started with a bcc on my nose but with all the surgery and radiation it`s still there .The radiation caused severe ulceration inside my nose now they found a large scc and this is what it`s all about at the moment and the oncologist is seriously considering amputating my nose .

All this added with my current health problem my nephew has written on msn he wants to die he does not want to live anymore ,then yesterday we found out our financial advisor has done the dirty on us and instead of retiring this year we are currently
$120,000.00 in debt and we have gone from owning our own home with a great bank balance to owing so much money it has been an awful week to say the least not i`m not even sure i can go ahead with the surgery anyway .
Life could not get anyworse if it tried.

Snowflake,

I am sorry to hear all of this. How could the financial advisor do this to you? You should be able to sue him for this. This is unreal.

I hope that you are able to go on with your surgery. You need to take care of the cancer. This could spread and go to your brain. You don't want that.

Remember you can always email me if you want to talk. It doesn't have to be through facebook. I sincerely hope that things get better for you.

Luv and hugs, Karen

Snowflake,

We are really going to miss you if you go off of internet. You might want to reconsider, you seem to get a lot of help from being able to go online. Think about it.

I hope all works out good when you go back to the doctor. That sure is a long drive to have to make. It must be so hard on you. But I guess when you have no other choice, you have to do what you have to do. I feel for you.

I hope that you get to read this before you start on your trip.

Take care my friend, I am thinking about you.

Hugs, Karen

Hi just a quick drop in .Saw the specialists this last week about the cancer it`s a buggar it`s still there .
I had a series of biopsys done on Wednesday my time .The results will be back as soon as the three pathologists check them out due to the type of cancer it is .Then hopefully can move on from there .
I`m in so much pain today but think it`s also due to the change in the weather .We have rain here for the past two days and i`m not complaining just enjoying it .Looks as though it will be with us for a few more days .
Karen i just cant afford the payments on the internet so it will have to go the sad thing is that it`s the only think i do look forward to .The family has all their own little outlets and now the only one i have has to go .
not sure what i will do as yet .
Will see if one of my older kids will pay it for me for a bit until i can work something out but after seeing the dr this morning and having to pay $ 120 in medications hubby is not going to be impressed at all some of them i will only take every few days instead of daily just to stretch them out a bit .
I still see the psychologist for a few more visits and it has been ok talking to her i did feel so much better after the last visit i was able to come home and talk to hubby which is something i`m finding really hard these past few years.
This week will be a quiet one as my daughter is away for he rest of the week we took her up to her g/parents last week when we went too see the drs she has her TAFE course this week up there .
Well i `m going to lie down just not feeling so good .
