HI CHARLINE IT IS NICE TO SEE THAT YOU ARE STILL WITH US. I TOO HAD LYMPHNODES TAKEN OUT AND I CAN'T USE MY LEFT ARE.THIS IS A DISASTER SINCE THE ONLY ARM THEY COULD USE WAS MY RIGHT ONE. I HAVE NO VEINS TO GET BLOOD OUT OF AND IT WAS A NIGHTMARE.I GOT SO SICK WHEN I SAW THEY WERE TO GET BLOOD FROM ME. THEY USED MY LEGS AND IT WAS SO PAINFUL.
I THINK I TOLD YOU BEFORE ABOUT THE NEUROPATHY. THERE ARE FOUR STATES THAT HAVE A GOOD RESULT IN TAKING THAT PROBLEM AWAY. ONE IS IN FLORIDA AMD AND ANOTHER IN GEORGIA AND NEW YORK. THE DOCTOR TAKES THE NERVE FROM THE TOP OF THE FOOT AND I WAS TOLD THAT IT WORKS GREAT. HAVE YOU TRIED NEURON OR GAPASTIN. THOSE PILLS WORK FOR A WHILE. BUT I STILL HAVE DAYS THAT I HAVE TO STAY IN BED.
TAKE CARE AND AGAIN IT IS NICE TO SEE YOUR HERE.
Thank you for your message. You and I have a lot in common with the problems that cancer has left us with.
I have tried the Gabapentin and Neurontin. They worked for a while, but not long term - plus had some unpleasant side affects. I have also tried Lyrica - but nothing helps. I just have to learn to deal with it. Some days are pretty good, and some are not.
Thanks for listening. I hope that you are feeling better and stronger each day. I am glad to be back in this group - I need friends.
I am praying for strength for you and that you feel better each new day.
