Well, it was nice while it lasted but all good things come to and end. Monday after returning from a lawyers visit I received a phone call from the medical house asking to deliver the hospital bed. I said sure and began cleaning stuff out of the bedroom. The supplies guy arrived and began setting up the bed when suddenly the nausea started followed by vomiting. I made to the kitchen sink and was busily puking away while the delivery guy was carrying bed parts into the house passing behind me while I'm busily regurgitating everything I ate that morning. Somewhat awkward for both of us. After 3 bouts of vomiting which occurred after radiating pain in my gut I got back to a recliner and sat down and rested. Being Monday the Hospice nurse was due and I had missed her call. At the same time my brother-n-law contacted my sister at work who also spoke with the Hospice nurse. The hospice nurse arrived and evaluated my condition concluding it was either another (new) bowl obstruction or constipation from the high fiber meals I had eaten the day before perhaps in combination with all the bending over while cleaning. So, consultations with the oncologist and the Hospice medical director. The hospice medical director suggested changing the anti nausea medications and adding some steroids. So I switched haldol, adavan, and compozine. The alternative is an NG tube which I hope to avoid since it further decreases my quality. What amazed me was how quickly I went from good to bad. Fortunately, after several hours I was feeling much better and was able to get up and move around. I hope this does the trick.
I can say that after a night on the mew medications I certainly fell better this morning and slept till almost 10 AM.
