UCH scheduled my Bard Power Port removal for this Thursday, December 15 2011 – Yippee!
I’m going home to Mackay, Idaho on December 27th! My Transplant Nurse Coordinator, Lindsey, and Social Worker, Amy, are making all the arrangements with my new oncologist in Idaho Falls, Idaho, Christian Shull, MD. So, I’ll finish out my first month of maintenance Velcade/Dex/Zometa/Revlimid chemotherapy and head home the next day. I’ve been gone since May 11 2011.
Yippee! The Prilosec 40 mg and Zantac 150 mg one hour prior to my Velcade/Dex yesterday worked magic and I did not have ANY acid burning in my esophagus and stomach
