    I have not written in a long time.  Thought I would share with you what has been going on.  Last month he had DVT in lung and leg.  The Lovenox has been working great and they inserted a filter so no big clots will enter again.  Well four days ago he came down with a high fever Wednesday night.  By the time it got to 102.5 I decided time to take him into ER.  He was so weak he could not ...

      First and foremost I want to say I am so sorry for all your dad is going through and yourself.  I am sitting in the hospital right now beside my husband who got sepsis.  Almost lost him.  He has a glioblastoma dx March of this year and had surgery to remove the tumor.  I want to know is why can he not be hydrated with the sodium chloride at home.  Please take care.    Jewels &nbs...

        Hi I know nothing about the pacreatic cancer but so sorry to hear about this.  My husband has brain cancer and that is why I am on this site, but I deal with constipation and I find that senokot works well but u need to make sure u drink plenty of water with it and also Activia yogurt works well too!  Also perhaps drinking metamucill could help him out too.  Hope he gets to feeling better.  Jewel...

            I am so happy to hear the good news.  We sure need some on this board.  I will check to see if you have any other messages on here.  I think you will find a lot of loved ones with this horrible cancer be asking you questions on here.  For some odd reason my husband's doctor did not want him on the temador while taking avastin.  Perhaps it is because they know already that my husband's case is...

              I just wanted to say thank you to all that posted on the dexamethasone.  I try and hurry and type stuff on here because never really know when my husband needs my help and just a bundle of nerves.  He is on the dex because of swelling on the brain.  I talked to my husband about going up to 2 mg or at least maybe 1/2 of that dose (he is now only on 1 mg in morning) but he does not want to. He is on...

                Hello, first of all I want to say I am so sorry for all your husband, you, your children and family members and friends.  This is so hard to deal with and every day you just do not know how they are going to feel or act.  If you want you can read my posts.  I know I left a lot out because there is so much that goes wrong.  When my husband had his surgery he came through with flying colors. But aft...

                      My husband was dx 03/04/2011. Surgery 03/05/2011. He came out doing so well after the surgery. Removed all the tumor. He was doing so well until about three quarters of the way through his chemo and temador. He has been going downhill ever since. He is on Avastin treatments now. This is such a sad situation. To see your loved one suffer through this agony. I feel so so sad for my husband.
