Yes, she is an awesome, amazing friend. I am so lucky to have a few of them and they have totally pulled through for me over this past year...even coming to Mayo with me, etc. Not a day goes by I don't thank my lucky stars for them.
I'm feeling a bit more lucid now. Pain's coming back a bit but I'm going to bed soon so hopefully will be able to sleep through it. Also, normally a cocktail like that would totally stop me up but I'm still having the big D! Crazy!
The doc today said my bloodwork looked good, WBC count was normal this time. She did a fecal occult blood test which came up positive again, and thought about doing a CT scan, but didn't want to do another one so close to the one I had done in September because of exposure to too much radiation. I don't think they would have found anything anyway.
Does anyone else ever get really intense pain like this, pain that doesn't respond to your typical regimen? Do you take anything strong for it?
