Thank you so much for your words of encouragment. I did start taking Carafate yesterday but became very short of breath. I called the ER as we live in a little town and they told me to stop
taking it until I see my surgeon on Tuesday. That was the only new thing that I had done and
I guess one of the serious side effects is that. I am not usually a very patient person as you
could ask my husband. But I will take your words of wisdom to heart.
Thank you so much for staying around for us newbies!!
