Hi, can’t seem to find my older posts so will just give a quick background.
My wife, (now 50) found a lump in her breast nearly two years back.
Lumpectomy, really poor pathology report, however scans showed no spread at all!
Due to other conditions no chemo.
Put on Tamoxifan, few months later had radio therapy to the area ‘just to be sure’
During this back pains started.
GP arranged bone scan ‘just to be sure’ this showed bone mets
MRI and CT showed, all bones effected and liver.
We were not told how many mets in the liver just that if it was one or fifty we have to deal with it.
She was put on Zolladronic acid for the bones.
Capsiteabean chemo in tablet form.
Z-acid has helped with the pain.
She had few side effects with the chemo.
Just finished the chemo.
Her liver functions were down, onco said this could be the chemo, the cancer or the pain killers.
Changed pain killers and ended chemo.
Since then all hell has broken lose
Tummy swollen up upper abdomen, could actually see the fist sized lump.
Felt sick and was sick despite anti sickness tabs (metroclopromide) tummy even more swollen.
Doc came and said liver was swollen.
Own GP (who is great) came and said that the liver could be swollen due to the cancer but that there are a number of other reasons.
Full bloods being taken today.
Scan arranged but as she can’t keep anything down she can’t have it due to the drink you have to have before the scan.
Last night and today, so bad I called in emergency day to work to be with her.
Can’t even keep water down to take pills (she is diabetic)
Called GP to come back.
Must be some kind of anti sickness injection?
Very, very worried.
Non of this is fair at all she has had no so called remission.
Her mid way scans showed a partial response to the chemo so that is good, however the Oncos registrar mentioned the tumours in the abdomen had gone back a bit, we knew nothing about these???
Anyway, has anyone got ideas for her to stop being sick?
Any help greatly appreciated.
