Carol - I share everyone's concern and am sending my prayers along too. I do think it's hard to start eating again after going a long while without - sometimes our bodies can't be trusted to understand what they need. I know that sounds weird -but I remember going on a "liquid fast" in my very much younger days.....and recall that the first time I tried to eat something solid after 4-5 days, it seemed like my body had forgotten how to swallow. Please try to keep nourishing yourself....and if that gets too hard - I'm with Redrose.....may be time for the ER.
Blessings to you -
Thank you Stacie, Redrose and lucy. for the support and the suggestions. Actually yesterday and today I quit taking all the the vitamins the doctor had me on(she would not be happy) since my blood transfusion. Since she isn't around to ask. I know I have to get back on the pottasium fairly quickly and I don't know about the b12. Frankly I'm stumped on that. I mean if I am taking shots do I still have to take the vitamins? and doesn't that have somthing to do with Iron so why do I need iron tablets?
Since I havn't taken this in 2 days my stomach seems to feel a bit better. I got down a couple of bites of chicken salad and some honeydew melon today. Yesterday I drank an ensure. Today was the first time I havn't had to be running to the bathroom. Which makes me think my vitamins are doing it. Unfortunately I can't stay off of them. Plus the doctor says mega protein. Maybe there is a drink that I can have that has ALL of the nessesary vitamins. I just don't understand taking them at all if my stomach can't absorb it.
Well anyway these are questions I've been asking myself. Any info would be great!
thanks On and on top of it to have to lose 40 lbs to get on the transplant list. So she put me on a 800mil. diet. so there are so many things I can't eat even if I felt like it.
thanks again ladies
Redrose I wasn't to crazy about the biopsy they did on you. Like I told ya they had taken all my parts out and then did a biopsy. I hope they do that with you. That was how they found my cancer and I had to go back in every 6 months for 5 years for tests.
Hey rivertree and Donna, thank you for your reply. Rivertree might I suggest you start a new thread introducing yourself? when people join up and start on a thread that's already going they somtimes get lost. I'm sure everyone would like to get to know a little about you. You sound like you will be a great addition to the group.
Donna, thank you for reminding me that I could make someone else sick since I don't know what is going on. I hadn't thought of that. I am always so busy trying to stay away from others that are sick. I love fudge cycicles and cup of soup. Unfortunately the cup of soup had 11hundred grams of salt! I can't eat salt LOL. I didn't realize that until I had eaten it almost every day for 3 months. gee can't understand why my fingers looked like little ball park franks plumin when ya cook em. Well I will ask my doctor what is going on monday and I'm not telling her I'm searching for another doctor until I have one. I just want someone that people I know have actually been to and recommend. and of course know something about this dang disease.
well gotta go but thanks agians ladies and rivertree again welcome to the group!
