View Full Version : More morphine

I知 getting another opportunity to enjoy my favorite drug, morphine. It was one year ago I had my bowel resection and morphine dreams, although the really wild ones were due to my adverse reaction to chemotherapy and the large morphine doses I received at that time.

While the chemo almost killed me, it didn稚 kill the cancer. So, back to the cutting board. I go under the knife again on Tuesday, August 20th. This time I値l suggest they close the incision with velcro, just in case.

There is an outside chance that I値l avoid a bag, but if not, maybe I値l be able to clip my chalk holder on it. Yah, I have a chalk holder and I wear a glove too!

Now to serious stuff I致e got one 8 hour tape of the WPC recorded and part of the second one. Luckily, I should be home from surgery in time to pop in that last tape. I hope to have about 20 hours recorded and ready to send out by Sept 7th.

The first tape, which has early rounds, had a portion preempted by a tennis match involving Anna Kournikova. Maybe that痴 not such a bad thing.

In any case I値l be taking names when I get back, unless I become a junky.

My prayers are with you Dave! You could send me the tape, and any extra Morphine you have. The thing I like about Morphine, is - you still feel the pain, but it's like happening to someone else. It's the darndest thing, and you're right about the dreams, sometimes morphine daydreams are the best. Get better soon. ***Lester***

Good evening:

My thoughts and prayers are with you. Having lost my lie partner to Pancreatic cancer in 1996, I am all too familiar with that which you are experiencing.

Be nice to the nurses Dave, without them the docs couldn't do a thing. Hope all goes well with your surgery and you are back to the keyboard better than ever. Jake

Then rise to fight again."

I'm sorry to hear the bad news Dave. I recall your stories from a year ago, while they were very funny, I can only imagine what you were going through. Morphine does have a way of bending the mind but might be a good thing in cases such as yours. Good luck you need some good rolls.

I do not know you well, dave, being a relative newcomer. I am very impressed though that you have a positive attitude and a sense of humor in the face of this scary situation.

May your recovery be swift.

Good Luck, you ingrate , you!! I'm thinking the very best thoughts I can for you /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif (Don't be surprised if you start running racks, these thoughts are so good!) LOL

Wishing you well Dave. Our thoughts will be with you. Be careful with the morphine though.....

I had emergency intestinal surgery in March '00 and enjoyed /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif a self-serve pushbuttom for morphine. One night during my hospital stay I apparently decided it was time for me to go home. After pulling out all the IV's and partially removing the other attachments, I got up and made about two steps before collapsing into a nurses arms. BIG MISTAKE !!! /ccboard/images/icons/frown.gif
To this day, I don't remember anything of that experience.

Dave,

Knock on wood, I had my stage III resection 2 years, 6 months and ten days ago. So far things are ok. Yup, I'm with you. Hated the chemo, but loved the iv-drip cocktail.
That being said, the best drug is the one you get when you have the colonoscopy.

My heart is with you on this one brother. Fight the fight and kick it's ass!

If you email me your address I will send you a copy of my book to give you a little pool action while you recover.

Best of luck.

Oh yes. Watch out for sharks! About a month after I had my operation I stopped by my pool room. I had complications and lost a significant amount of weight. I was barely able to keep my pants up (this weight by the way has now come back and brought lots of friends)and my walk was better described as a shuffle. Well, the sharks were knocking each other over to get to me to play...you know...for a little something just to keep it interesting. I lost a few jelly beans to someone. I didn't care, it was great to play. Every day I came by this guy was ready to play. Well, now that I am feeling better, and can now defend myself, this guy is never available. Gee, who woulda thunk it?

One Day At A Time. Just wanted to jump on the bandwagon in wishing you the best of luck in tough times.


Eric &gt;expect the worst, hope for the best

Can you tell me what the resection is that a couple of you have been talking about. About how long after it were you able to eat partially solid foods. Thanks.

Dave,

I haven't read through this thread yet, but I assume I am echoing the many good wishes for you. I hope they get it right this time! If you can sneak a couple amps of Morphine or even Demerol save me some. I spent a week in the hospital a couple of years ago recovering from post surgery staph infection. Got Demerol intravenously about five times a day while they cleaned the wound and I came to understand how people get hooked on heroin.

Seriously, I wish you all the best with your battle.

I'm off to the hospital today, even though the operation isn't till Tuesday. I expect to be back within 7 to 10 days.

My heartfelt thanks to everyone for their prayers and good wishes.

Catch you later.

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;Mike, demerol gives me "bad dreams", percodans have that time-warp continuum thing going on. I use Excedrine for headaches now, it does great for them. ***Lester***
