You better make sure you have all your other organs when you wake up. Where do you think Clark gets his cut rate organs from? You might wake up with only one lung, for example.

I haven稚 taken that for at least 10 years, and closer to 15. It痴 not a treatment. I was on Humira until my most recent surgery and it worked well. I see my gastroenterologist next week and she痴 already mentioned that there are several new biologic treatments for this that show promise; I値l be starting one of those instead of Humira. I wouldn稚 wish this on my worst enemy, but it is something you can live with and still have a good quality of life. Good luck.
My comment is in regard to your almost constant negativity towards me. I don稚 get it.

I have a very good understanding of prednisone and hate it with all my might. They use it when there is significant inflammation and there is delay in treatment. My disease is pretty severe and it does help and has kept me from spiraling down a few times. Usually I refuse it but this time I知 about ready to eat kittens if that helps.

Have you tried kittens?

Have you tried kittens?
Cashew Kittens

Ingredients
1/2 cup rice vinegar
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1/2 cup sherry
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1-1/2 pounds skinless boneless kittens, cubed
3 tablespoons canola oil
3 cups fresh broccoli florets
1 cup thinly sliced carrots
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon ground ginger
1 cup roasted salted cashews
Hot cooked rice

Directions
  • In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, sherry, sesame oil and garlic powder. Pour half into a large resealable plastic bag; add kittens. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 2 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  • Discard marinade from kittens. In a wok or large skillet, stir-fry kittens in canola oil for 2-3 minutes or until no longer pink. With a slotted spoon, remove kittens and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, stir-fry broccoli and carrots for 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Combine the cornstarch, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger and reserved marinade until smooth; gradually stir into vegetables. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in cashews and kittens; heat through.
Serve with rice.

I could use all the woodworking and automotive tools I could get, although I find that automotive tools are more helpful with surgeries than woodworking tools.

Having had a colon resection a few years back, which pales from your situation, I can imagine what you are going thru. Keep pushing forward, you will get past this. Rooting for ya!

Turns out my bladder isn稚 emptying. Now my kidneys are in stage 1 failure. Waiting for surgery scheduler trying to avoid ER. Believe it or not, it痴 an outpatient thing but comes with four days of brutal recovery with Foley catheter.



I値l go to the ER if I have to, but that is what precipated the living hell I went through last time. I don稚 want a general surgeon anywhere near me.



I知 stable for now. My kidneys are hurting. I don稚 know when they will schedule so my life is on hold. I had to postpone my chemo on Wednesday. I知 also anemic so I was going to get iron infusion too. Now I don稚 know when.



Wife is terrified but not as much as me.



Just whining. at the same time, I知 ready to do anything to lose this pain. After six months of 24/7 it is wearing me down.



Pisses me off (pun not intended) that none of my doctors caught this sooner. They get too focused on the primary disease state. This is how a lot of people with chronic illness die.



I bet I won稚 though.

suggestions:

never pee in a hurry; relax and let it happen with no urgency to end it..

near the end... the stream becomes thin and you may not feel like there's any more coming out. Let it continue, until the last drop has fallen; do not "wince" it to end the evacuation.

urinate more often; don't wait until the urge is strong.

Thanks. I致e been going quite often but only a few oz at a time. Ultra sound says I知 retaining about half volume. What is weird is, at half volume I have zero urge. But as long as I can pee, I can avoid the hospital.

The big problems comes when you cannot pee at all. Then you get to experience the placement of a foley cath without anesthesia. I知 trying to avoid that at all costs. I値l end up with one for a few days but placed while I知 under.

Removing it is another story. It痴 the most intense thing EVAR. Hurts like hell but only for a bit.

My biggest complaint is the constant pain and pressure. I can barely eat anything. Can稚 wear pants or a belt. I知 wearing sweats all day. I attempted to go to drug store yesterday and had to turn back. My belt put too much pressure on my gut.

I have several more days of this to go. I知 starting to get anxious because between now and normalicy is some very ugly, painful stuff. I知 sure I値l get through it. Many others have. It will be my fourth time with the cath.

Of all the stuff I致e dealt with, that is the worst. And I致e been shot. This is worse.
