Sodium levels have dropped. I always know by the spaced out feeling it gives me.
Don't be sorry my friend.
We are the ones who are sorry and sad to see you in such pain. What bums me is that you have had this several days now and they have not been capable to find out the "why and how" of it.
This is what really bothers me. Is there any way you can be transfered to a research or university hospital of sorts with top professors and assistants?
There has to be some. It will not be near your home but my internal radar tells me this is what you need and where you need to be.At least these professors would be able to find out the why and how which your doctors don't seem to be capable of or unwilling or maybe it is that they don't care.
We want you to stay with us. We don't want to see you in such pain.
Do you have any doctors in your personal contacts, family or such?
It seems that all the progress was made because of your change of diet not because of the doctors and then it seems to me - and i think i am right on this one - that your foot swelling and rash is definitely due to some changes in the pharmaceutical treatment. Something there that you are not tolerating provoking this reaction.
I am positive that something can be done to get you rid of this foot swelling + rash but these doctors in your hospital don't want to hear anything aside from their murderous chemotherapy and radiation.
It goes in circles. It is not you, it is them.
I wish they would find what is causing this but they don't seem to want to hear about it.
Can't they take biopsies and send them out to the proper places? X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, whatever??
