Topic: troubling symptoms reappearing

I was feeling weak and sick for the past couple of weeks and chalked it up to the surgery and hosptial stay.

Now though, I am feeling like I did when first diagnosed.  Constant stomach upset, dark colored urine, trouble sleeping, and itchy feet at night. 

These seem to be signs that the tumor is blocking the bile ducts once again.

Darn it, looks like its time for a stent to be put in.

Lisa,
I am so sorry to hear you are not feeling well.  You sure have been through a lot this past month.  Hang in there and prayers coming for strength and better days.  Bet the Fall colors sure look beautiful where you live.  It is cold here and even snowed yesterday.      Love,   Hollie

Lisa,
Hang on tight. You might just be having problems from the surgery. Are you having a scan soon or ercp? Perhaps they could give you some answers.

Lisa....I recall you talking about the latest CT results showing a "lazy" tumor.  I don't recall you saying anything about your latest blood test results.  I would ask to have this done. 
You know this already but again, tons of good wishes coming your way.

Had a bad report back from the lab yesterday.  I had an MRI done last night.  Forgot how awful it is to be in an MRI machine.  Hopefully I will hear back soon with the results.  In the meantime, sit and wait.

Hang in there, Lisa...sending you my love and best wishes.

Lisa, this is not exactly the kind of news I wanted to come home to. I always try to be optimistically realistic and that way am prepared to go either way. I will cross everything I have for better news. Its especially easy right now on the Percoset! Sending good vibes your way.
