  • Update on my SISTER

    Caught in the wonderful world of medical limbo is what you'd call it I guess. Because she refused treatment from her first oncologist who told her that the infection in her incision from removing the lymph nodes was no big deal my sister asked for another oncologist because she doesn't feel comfortable with this one....geez, wonder why cussing cussing When my sister insisted on an antiobitic to treat the infection they couldn't find a drug store to fill it....only to call a hospital to be told they no longer make the drug!?!?!?!?! She had to go out there the day after to the surgeon to have the infection properly treated...the oncologist was suppose to do this immediately on the first visit but didn't. cussing cussing So, now my sister can't get in to see the head of the department until March 18th......guess they figure they are basically fighting a loosing battle so why panic. Well, damnit! It's my sister and 4 weeks of treatments have just been stolen from her which could equal 4 less weeks she has to live
    She is doing her darndest to keep busy. She is doing some sewing because of numbness and nerve damage in the leg....she can't stand to have pants rubbing the incision so she is making some pull-over dresses. She is cooking dinner's and keeping the house up, doing all the things that she can to try to keep her mind while waiting. And, the longer she has to wait, the more she is learning about this treatment which is NOT that effective
    I always thought we got the bumb steer because we got stuck with IC and no one knows about it so we are left to suffer. Well, apparently it ain't so. It happens to people who have live time bombs ticking away inside of them too

    I really appreciate all the the PM's and the encouragement.....

    Please keep praying for my family~

    Teri,
    Thank-you for the update. I was wondering how she was doing but didn't want to ask. I know how upsetting this whole ordeal is for all of you. Sending my prayers and hoping for good things.
