Hi kids. Hope everyone is hanging in there. Fresh out of my last hospital stay. Not to sound melodramatic, but I've honestly lost count of how many stays I've had since diagnosed with MP in January. Let's say I've been more in than out. They, of course, don't know what to do other than manage pain and other symptoms. I've shared before that I 'graze' eat to control the nausea. It no longer does, so I'm taking Zofran around the clock. Pisses me off. Suffered a bad bout of pancreatitis, had to be courtesy of MP. I wanted to share that I've been on Protonix, with awesome results. Heartburn is gone. Back on another short round of steroids, but it will end once my PCP has his say. I've graduated to Morphine PO, with Percocet for breakthrough pain, and I resent having to take them them both. I'm waiting on authorization for the cerebral angiogram on my aneurysm (My nice, quiet, killer problem that should take the limelight from the MP, but doesn't.). Ok, I'm done whinning. Try out Protonix, my friends. And hang in there everybody.
