My wife hasn't been doing too well lately. Had radiation in Dec to help with pain and it did help. Now on Gemcitibene /Abraxene. Blood levels are all over the place. Has had to have reduced amounts due to Neutophils and WBC levels also is having a transfusion every week as her hemoglobin is way down. They suspect she is having bleeds as there was blood in her stool again. will try to find out what is causing them. Doc suspected tumors not the ulcers she also has.. Anywone else hear of this? She has lost so much weight and her stomach is now distended. I assume its Ascities???(spelling?) I assume this is all super bad. My young kids are starting to look distressingly at her. She has been ok with pain but is having horrific bowel movements and gas issues.
