  • From this study (2 days ago):

  • Given Ativan during all phases of triple negative inflammatory breast cancer treatment. Given with chemo, before surgery, before scopings, and for home use. Other than what the hospital and cancer center gave to me during treatment. Took 1-2 mg/night for nearly two years. Had nearly every side effect listed including paradoxical effects. The most troubling is the aching lungs and flu feelings every day. Told oncologist every bizarre symptom. No response. Told husband she wasn't a mental health worker. No but she should have known the side effects of a sedative-hypnotic CNS depressant that is highly addictive. It should not have been given to me especially since she doubled my two antidepressants too. Given morphine to eat in hospital along with more lorazepam. Took morphine and hydrocodone (elixir) as needed.

  • Thyroid blood work 639 now on synthetic thyroid medication but blood pressure is dropping lower as time is passing. I have severe headaches and migraines. My lower right back is hurting bad. Hydrocodone edges not even help the pain. They saw my thyroid enlarged in cat scan . I am going for a sonogram tomorrow. I am so fatigued. It is hard to get out of bed, but I force myself. The doctor primary keeps adjusting medications. I have an appointment with an endocrinologist but not until mid November. Getting more discouraged as time goes by. Don't know what to do.
