It's been one of those years.....Finally found MIL has hairy cell leukemia. Don't know if you remember she had a colonoscopy, puncture, infection, month in rehab because she lost moblility came home, she lives with us. She started to go down hill again and now we know why. They said 90% chance of remission however her age/health issues play a role in it too.
I know there are other cancer paitents here, she starts chemo in a few weeks. Right now the biggest concern is she has lost 30 pds and still loosing. She only eats 3 times a day and not as much as she use too. I have tried everything with her, trying to get her to eat 6 small meals a day, candy, ice cream, ensure, etc. She tells me she can't her stomach will get upset, I try to explain that we need to have you eat because when you start chemo that will be another problem.
When I try to reason with her, she starts getting upset and on the verge of crying....any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Today was my thyroid appointment, test was normal, duh. He wants to do another scan and lab work....ugh!!! I go look I was hopeing you come in here and tell me that it wasn't normal so I can have a reason to feel this way.......went through the problems I have been having.........he goes Fibromyalgia...... do ever feel the need to strangle your doctors........I'm thinking of several right now.
