That's a lot of fluid to have drawn out that fast........I hope you get that note from the doc. And an explanation why you have that pain and all this fluid.

lk the liver specialist i went to gave me a perscription fo pepcid but i never filled it. cuz the day after they drained the 3000ml of fluid out of me i felt better. i'm pretty sure the fluid was pushing on the stitches and the incision i had in there and probably my diaphram as well. i feel kinda sick now and then but nothing like lastSat. AND as of this morning (even though i was bad and went out yesterday and wound up at a deli and had a sandwich) i am down to the weight i was about 2 wks before the surgery. i'm still a bit bloated and can't fit into the jeans i was wearing before the surgery so i hope i have some more to get out of me. (the doc doubled one of my diuretics)cuz geeez, all the stuff they took out of me had to have weighed at least a couple lbs!

Yeah, my mom said it took her nearly a month before she felt like her old self after she had the same surgery. The bloating from the surgery should go down too. Some of the 'discomfort' is from them pushing stuff around and stretching stuff where nature never intended, plus they pump you full of gas to make it easier to move that stuff around. You'll have your good days and bad for a little while yet.

was doing pretty good til i walked down to the stores today...had to hit the store, the library (looking for state tax booklet and forms which i'm told they do NOT print any more...i had to go to a website and all i could find was the form to print out..which didn't print out worth crap...but its okay for a work sheet),bank(got the papers there that i need to take to the hospital and pray for charity care help), post office, grocery store and then Trader Joes....all while i was pouring rain....Yep, i walked down there in the sunshine and as soon as i headed to the library it started to pour!
now my legs are achin' and i ate too much (cuz i finally have some food in the house...baked potatoes, bananas,no sodium cottage cheese....and lot of fruit. i ate two small baked potatoes and waaay too much fruit. But it tasted good!

And i've lost all the weight that i gained at the hospital off plus a few more lbs. 5 more lbs and i think i'll be happy. much more than that and i think i'll start getting scared. still a little bulgy in areas...hopes its swelling that will go down. otherwise i've got fat in the oddest areas;)

Are there any places that are offering free tax help? You might be able to get decent forms and the instructions from them. We just finally got the booklets for the tax forms here yesterday (the forms have been here for 3 weeks).
Other than the overworked legs, are you feeling any better now Jeane?

went running around Fri to try to get all this stuff done that needed to be done and nothing happened...couldn't get my taxes done cuz H&R wanted to charge $250 to do it...and the dude said i might as well NOT itemize and just do the standard medical deduction and do a 1040 EZ. Well i have the booklet and forms for the IRS but NOT for NJ cuz NJ won't sendthe booklet to anyone..you can print the form up on line(though mine didn't print out worth a crap..there's abar code that fades in the middle)but there' no booklet to use to look things up!

i still need two pay stubs to take to charity care....but i can't find them and they told me to go someplace online through corportate to find them and i can't find it now that i'm home. i THINK i found it one night but i can't remember where it was and i couldn't get the password right so it never let me in AND there's no place to contact them unless you're a customer!

Tomorrow (or rather in like 7 hrs) i go to the cancer doc again....see what he thinks about me going back to work in about a week. i wouldn't mind making it 2 wks...or 10 days rather..cuz i'm supposed to go back in the middle of the week and i don't think they'll be able to work me into the schedual.

the BIG news is that i was graciously given a guest pass to that 'con' here in NJ (just 18 mi from here). i wasn't going cuz i wasn't going to pay the women who are running it a penny...they are poor business people and have been very very cruel and nasty/flaming me. BUT since i got the special pass by someone very special all i have to do it find a way there and back. I hopefully have a way there by going into NYC and meeting up with someone and taking the train to the hotel. but i don't know how i'm getting home unless i can find someone who is going to be at the con on Sun who is going back the same way. (Some of you guys know how screwed up i get trying to figure out trains..buses are hard enough!). there's no much i plan on doing...i just want to see the bands that are going to be there. it will be nice to see the Blue Meanies again:)

this is the big test to see if i can keep on my feet and deal with hassles etc before i go back to work.

They want to charge you $250 for a 1040 EZ and a NJ state return??? I'm in the wrong business! They inflate charges like that because they only generate income for about 4 months every year, and they have to make it last until the next tax season, but that's still nuts.

the $250 was to file itemized, not the EZ. I had them do my taxes, 1040EZ and NY state and paid $59. actually got the federal done free because I went in before Feb 15 (actually ON Feb 15 ) so took advantage of the free federal EZ filing

I agree, sometimes the local churches get retired chartered accounts to tax returns for
people in need during tax season.

Like I mentioned earlier, my brother is a retired CPA and he volunteers every year to do taxes for low income families. I posted a link to some info on it.

Even $59 seems a bit rediculous for the 1040EZ! Question

Also, just to let you know, if you haven't gotten wind of my situation, I've just been diagnosed with Stage IV Breast cancer and I'll be thinking of you tomorrow when I go in for my first chemo in the a.m.!

ARNI - Please find your way to the new topic I made, called THE TROUBLE WITH PEOPLE, and start a thread about your treatment journey. It will be easier for all of us to follow your progress that way. I think now that we have several people with health concerns, a separate topic was needed. Thanks!
