Jan, you are certainly welcome.  Currently my Dr. is out of town...I will see his gastro RN the week of June 23rd to get some instruction on giving myself the subcu injections of octreotide.  I really hope this helps as I'm close to having to go to hospital (or ER/outpatient ER for supplemental hydration) on a regular basis.  Although I do NOT regret having the ileostomy surgery, it has presented a whole other host of problems for me (some unforseen).  I know I am extremely lucky to have insurance to cover this med at such a low (co-pay) cost to me.  If it does not help me substantially I will keep on looking for any other avenues that will keep me from being on TPN OR A PICC line/catheter......but if it comes down to that then I will deal with it.  I will keep you posted and again, thanks for you interest.
