Apr 21, 2017 · Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) in Digestive Health

thanks @gman007 / appreciate the concern / not to overanious about the meeting because that is turning into a weekly thing for blood measurements / the big day will come a week after chemo 4 when we do a PET scan to measure the achieved results for the first time / the other issue is ongoing and its the diarrhea not being under control / its figuratively sucking the life out of me / down about 35 pounds since January / ughhhh and not sure where we’re going with it / maybe next week after the colonoscopy we’ll have a positive correction plan / praying and hoping

@kanaazpereira @gman007 Discharged yesterday and have my blood numbers under control for now with white count rising to about 5800 yesterday taking me out of the danger zone . . . the IV antibiotics certainly much different than orals . . . looked at the hospital operation vs. one pill at home and said no comparison . . . meet with my oncologist on Monday for continuing updates and a chemo session on Monday May 1st . . . consented to a colonoscopy next week to try and find the root cause of weight loss and am considering another opinion at Mayo in Waycross for an overall re-evaluation

@kanaazpereira doc admitted me to the hospital last night and are doing the antibiotics by IV in addition to a few other maintenance things – hoping to get out in a day or two 🙂

@kanaazpereira – started on Levofloxacin – kept me up for the last 12 hours and I feel I’ve had many reactions from it last night – short of breath, throbing ears, rapid heart beat etc. – called the doc and waiting for a reply

@gman007 – t/HANK/s for the feedback . . . I just got off Creon today . . . . the sides knocked me for a loop and Dr. Stomach moved me over to Prtyze starting tomorrow . . . the protein in my high carb high protein including the shakes etc. to gain weight have my weight on hold and can’t move up the scale . . . the EPI just hit me over night and has been a struggle just like yours is . . . I appreciate the prayers and welcome them as a Believer . . . sending prayers out your way from my wife and I . . . some good news today though – Dr. Cancer believes the tumor is shrinking at a rapid rate and will do the PET in about 3 weeks. Downside is that I had to jump on antibiotics today because my white blood count dropped out of the acceptable range and that’s the blood function that helps fight infection . . . . stay in touch @gman and God Bless you and yours /h

Diagnosed with Lymphoma B in February, 2017 – I jaundiced out in the hospital with a BILI @ about 17.5 – Med team inserted bile stents in my pancreas and liver ducts and the blood numbers are now normal – I have many of the symptoms and diarrhea and mix of loose stools along with weight loss lead he pack – I have just started a regimen of Creon 36,000 X 7 a couple days ago and also taking Imodium and Lomotil for the diarrhea . . . any suggestion if these should be taken together or should the Imodium/Lomotil combo be dropped and let the Creon attempt to do its job. Also next will be chemo session 4, R-Chop – someone please advise – have any idea how long before the meds show any appreciable improvement/kick in ? /hh
