    Exactly. Why is he not contacting other doctors that have specialized experience?

    Jesse, I didn't mean to upset you. I hope today is a better day for you. Hugs.

    Love you Jesse. You are giving everything you've got to this battle and we are here with you. You are in my thoughts so often. And my hope is that you find peace, comfort, and love today, tomorrow, and forever. (((Jesse)))

    I don't understand that they will not do a scan, because if it is cancer there are no treatment options. That's unacceptable! what if it's not cancer in your lungs? what if it is something they can treat? How can they know without a scan? Someone needs to scream at someone for you!

    I am so sorry you are going through this. I think about you daily and pray that some miracle will happen for you. All we can do is let yo know that we honestly do care and that we want you to get better. I hope that all of our collective love and prayers bring you some comfort.

    Jesse, can you get another doctor? Does your family have the means or time to try and find someone else? If he has admitted that he knows nothing about your cancer then I would want to find someone who does or who at least is willing to dive in and learn all they can about it and possible treatments. Maybe he is doing this but your post does not sound encouraging. I am so sorry you are going through this but I check this thread all the time with hopes you are feeling better and having a good day.

    I keep waking up in the small hours, which I rarely do, and feeling prompted to pray for you, Jesse. God must want to be sure you're being prayed for at all times. :)

    Jesse, I hope today brought some relief from your terrible cough, shortness of breath, and other pain.

    In spite of everything you are going through, I don't think you have posted yet without an "lol" or "haha." That is pretty amazing. I am sure you are not amused but it is as if you are trying to prevent us from worrying. You are so sweet.

    Rest well, Jesse dear.

    I know he has talked to my oncologist a few times. But I don't know how much.

    Today was soooooooooooooooo bad. Something stuck in my throat again so I was gagging and coughing for hours with the nurse on one side and my dad on the other and me crying and screaming and everyone yelling at each other lol it was so bad and I was like throwing up except nothing was coming out because I haven't eaten in like 3 weeks so I was like going into convulsions ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. The entire day I just felt so horrible too. I slept most of it, and will try to sleep more now.. seems that's all I do, except for this half hour I get on the computer.

    Jesse - I'm so sorry you had such a wretched day yesterday, but hope that today will be a bit better and that you will be able to catch a few performances from Skate America on youtube. There are links in the SKAM thread. ((((((hugs))))))

    (((Jesse))), yesterday sounds hellish. I am so sorry. I know you are having trouble eating, but are they getting nutrients into you some other way? Are they providing this:

    Hyperalimentation

    Alternate Names

    total parental nutrition
    TPN
    central hyperalimentation
    parental hyperalimentation
    Definition

    Hyperalimentation is a procedure in which nutrients and vitamins are given to a person in liquid form through a vein. It is only given to someone who cannot get nutrients through the intestinal tract.

    Hyperalimentation is used for people with health problems that prevent them from absorbing enough nutrients through their intestines. It is also used when a person is severely malnourished and cannot take in food by mouth.

    A central line is a special intravenous or IV line that is inserted through the chest and threaded into one of the large veins that lie close to the heart. A central line must be used for this procedure because the solution is highly concentrated and would burn the tissues if it leaked out of an IV site, such as in the arm.
    The hyperalimentation solution is tailored to the needs of the individual, and contains:
    glucose, or sugar
    amino acids, the digested form of proteins
    electrolytes, such as potassium and sodium
    vitamins
    fat emulsion

    I know it is awful, but have they suggested a naso-gastric tube?

    You have to get something in your system to fight this. XOXO

    Jesse -- hoping today is much, much better for you. Are there hospice services in Canada? My dad had a cancer that severely affected his swallowing (even saliva) and the hospice doctors were much more effective than the hospital was at making him comfortable and avoiding choking-related problems. They also gave him large doses of anti-anxiety medication, which was also a big help.
