We just lost one of our rescues. She was an 18 yr old Siamese who developed bladder cancer. We had her for two years after her first Mommy was killed in a motorcycle accident. What a sweet shrieky dear she was!

I had lung cancer surgery on May 30. They removed the right lower lobe. Subsequently, I had an infection in the liver and was on a drain. One of the antibiotics caused a seizure and I had to be taken to hospital by Emergency Services. Off the antibiotics now, and the PICCline and the drain to my liver. I had had a small stroke in January, which I didn’t even notice. But my balance was shot. I’m going to Physio twice a week. Have graduated from a walker to a cane. No chemo – we’re on a wait and see because I have a number of autoimmune diseases. EEG next week and appt with Oncologist in October.
I have Sjogrens too and I was getting a chest scan frequently from m.y Cardiologist. He kept spotting something in my right lung and we thought it was the Sjogrens but this time I got a shock. It was lung cancer so I had a lobe removed in May. Add to that I had a stroke in January and I now have an infection on my liver! I am only saying this is possible, but rare. I also have itchy ankles. Primary problem is Psoriatic Arthritis. Have you tried an OTC cortisone ointment on your itch? @marylou705
I’m sorry nobody advised you on this. I recently had lung cancer surgery and then I got an abscess on my liver so I have a PICC line for antibiotics. My Rheumatologist told me to quit taking Simponi and he also won’t let me have any cortisone or prednisone because of the antibiotics. I believe Methotrexate is in the same family as Simponi, or similar. @marylou705
See if your Dr can recommend a Psychologist. They don’t need to have a doctorate; a Masters is fine.
As to loneliness, you need to address that too. I sing in the Choir, have a Writer’s Group, an Art Group and sometimes drop in on the Genealogical Society. Most of these courses are free at the Library. I hope you can find some Group to socialize with. Check your Library.
I have had a stroke, lung cancer, and have a PICC line for a liver infection, all in the last six months. Autoimmune Disease is 25 years old. I am 70. @marylou705
I agree with you. She needs a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist who does EMDR. It’s painless and just redirects your brain to use different hemispheres and thought processes. Don’t stick with a nasty professional. They can be lethal. @marylou705
