My thoughts and prayers are with you, may you get the help you need soon, and the morphine at least lessens the pain for you if nothing else!
love, hugs & cheers,

>I was supposed to go back to Chicago on the 4th but they are changing it to this Thursday because of all the pain I am having. I was doing "okay" last week until I finished up on my antibiotic therapy (I had to go in once a day for shots of rocephin). Now I find that I can barely stand up the pain is so unbearable. The area around my urostomy is really painful as well. This is not boding well for the surgery they had scheduled. The nurse told me today that it sounds like they will definetely have to remove the expanders. My local doctor won't even deal with me....told me to call Chicago. In the mean time what do I do until Thursday. It may not seem like long but when the morphine doesn't work...and I can take as much as I need to...it is a lifetime.
