    5 months on cymbalta, scary side effects, to get help and to return the favor if I can.

Update: spent a week in palliative care. They are so loving. Like last year, a few different workers. As usual, I felt adapted after six days.

Brain scan, normal
Blood test, ok, slight anemia, normal for my condition.
Urine test, ok, normal for my condition.

I saw a phisiotherapist, to check my walking and a few other things.

Cancer is progressing, walking the stairs is hard, shallow breathing.

Last, they changed the Ativan 1mg to clonazepam .5 not much difference.

Fishinghat, change straight to clonazepam, does that seem ok?

AM. Clonazepam .5
PM. Same. Thoughts please!

Great to hear from you Gailage! Sounds like you are being well looked after and that puts my mind at ease.

 

Clonazepam is a bit longer lasting and has less of a withdrawal that Ativan, but with regards to the straight switch between them, I do not know, so yes, better one for Hat to answer as benzos are more his speciality. 

 

So good you are having all these tests and they are considering the best course for your meds. I hope they are feeding you well in there too. Did they allow room for Acorn and Chin chin, or are they looking after the apartment while you are on pally vacation?! :)

 

Thinking of you and praying for you every day my love.

Thanks fishinghat and Scrat! Acorn has left for his planet, he couldn't deal with everything being to Fast. Chin chin has left for my sister in law, she loves him.

And back to my own planet, I have seen it all, there's a psych ward there. My heart goes out to them. When we think that we're in the bottom, after seeing this, we are not.

Gail, just read through this whole thread.  I did not know you were ill.  Thank you dearly for all the compassion and love you've shown me, my daughter and the many, many others on this site.  You have done so much "good" in the world, I believe it will come back to you in spades!

Hi guys I have a message that gail has asked me to post. It is below:

 

 

Been here for 11-12 days. Comfortable. What brought me in was water between the !ung and la plevre.

They are waiting for me to have another episode to put a permanent drain which would be emptied by a nurse at home. my physical exam everyday proves to be perfect except for the right lung.

I'm not suffering at all, might say that I'm having fun. Love to all!

My dear Liz, this is not an easy one. I should be out by the end of the week. Heading in palliative care is far from joyous, on 10 beds, four leave every day to heaven. Lots of tears, so sensitive. Even for people we don't know. We have communion about three times a week.

Test have started for. The waters in the lungs. Good, an ocean in there. No fishing Fishinghat, prayers will do. Thank you. Back to outside. Love to all.

Just got home from my 26 days of vacation. High time, I had it full my ass. 15 days for nothing due to a stupid doctor. Good thing my doctor looked and check. no need to wait till another crisis to put the drain. On the operation table yesterdAy, he gave me the
Pros and cons of a permanent drain , when he said no more bath, no more swimming but no more baths, I need bath, they call me down.

My son is not happy with that decision. The good one is that I'll have a training every two weeks if called for..

Of course I forgot my charger at the hospital, will by a new one.

I'll still follow the forum but less. Love you all, Gail

Hey Gailage - thank you so much for taking time to update us all here. Lots of thoughts and prayers.

 

Shame about the bath situation as I know that you enjoy your bathing. But it could have been far worse in that they could have told you to no longer eat brownies!! Imagine that!!

 

Understand that you will be here when you can, and that your energy must be used as you best need it - and again, lovely to hear from you my sweet - fills me with so much happiness to see this appear at my inbox! No doubt I speak for everyone though... especially our LDN!!

 

God Bless you chere...

 

Scrat
