Back Pain

Tricia's experiencing a lot of back pain, including spasms. It could be caused by several things, and she's going to be check out today. She didn't sleep at all last night. We'd appreciate your thoughts and prayers today.

Thanks.

Nate

BTW, I fixed the bone marrow link, so, it should lead you to the FREE registration now.

Praying as I type and will continue to pray for her to have a good report from the doctor today. Matthew 11:28-30 is the scripture I came to for her today. God bless!

I had agonising shooting backpains when I was on a certain IV....think it was Tazocin....not sure that's any help but hope the pain eases up x

Hope Tricia feels better soon. I know from experience that the Neupogen or Neulasta shots cause some bone/back pain if thats the shot she recently received for her wbc boost.

Nate, have you or any family members already registered for the bone marrow registration and if so..how did it go?

Praying for Tricia right now.

It could be the side effect to chemo. I also had back pain, and joint pain while I was doing chemo. Some days I was unable to get out of bed or walk to the bathroom without help.

Praying for Tricia today. I stumbled across your blog today and wanted to tell you that your story is very inspiring.
I also noticed that you're also in North Carolina.
I live with Marfan Syndrome and visit Duke often for treatment - I know how that can be.

i don't know what injection she had to boost her white blood cells...but, when my husband went through chemo, they gave him Neupogen for that and it gave him horrible back/bone pain. maybe it's from the shot? warm baths really helped him.
i'll pray that the pain goes away and that she gets some sleep.

I hope she feels better soon and it's nothing serious.

By the way, I know you have a large prayer community so could you keep someone in your prayers. This couple had a little boy who was born too early and died. Now they have a 1 year old who was just diagnose with Hurler's disease and most children with this die early on. Please check out their site and keep them in your prayers.

Good thoughts for Tricia....

Cheryl said...

Another vote for the Neulasta/Neupogen being the culprit. Hope she gets some relief soon!

Praying right now!

I am praying her pain subsides or they can do something to help her through it.

Neuprogen, Neulasta and drugs like Leukine to help the white blood counts all can really cause spine pain. Depending on which they gave her. They affect people differently . I took a lot of Neuprogen with my first form of chemo and it was just fine no problem Then Leukine I was just miserable. I had spasms and wicked pain in the spine and hips.
I agree some chemo can do the same.
Good its being checked out.

Praying for all of you today.

I am praying for Tricia right now. I am praying specifically that she gets a good report and that her pain is absent.
