Is pain in my stomach normal?

What all with certain things, aches, pains being normal, I thought I would ask. I remember, when I thought that heavy bleeding and blood clots were abnormal, but with gyn cancers, they are 'normal'. I have been experiencing lower abdomenal pain for the past few weeks, getting worse and worse. Today it's almost unbearable and is now a daily thing for me. When I press on my lower and mid tummy it hurts so much. My pain is similar to severe cramping. I have been taking non aspirin stuff, but the aspirin kind of stuff is better, but I heard it's worse for us cancer patients. Still, I have to take alot to get relief.

I asked the doctors but they just gave me more things for stomach burn, laxatives and nausea. I'm such a mess, combined constipation and diarea.... I asked the radioligist specialist, she did the same. Do I just have alot of of junk in my tummy that has to get out? Is there something better I can eat? Right now, its very difficult to eat much more than crackers and rice stuff, which i know is not to good. But I can seem to stomach veggies. I do eat melon though and apples, so that should help. Perhaps this is one of things that 'will pass'..... (kinda funny)

Sorry to be whining so much lately, normaly I have a really good sense of humor and can laugh most of this stuff off.... I feel really bad about this...

Oh Maria, I'm so sorry to hear about your pain. I hate it!!

I can't remember getting any kind of stomach cramps while undergoing radiation or now with chemo. It could be the constipation and/or diarreah, I'm not sure. I do know that I had almost unbareable pain while trying to go to the rest room. I remember really having to go, but when I went nothing would come out and it was killing me. Talked to my radialogist nurse (she was a Godsend) and she told me sounded like hemorids, never had them before, so didn't know. She told me to get prep h, and hold it in for as long as I could then try again. It was SUCH a different story, when I went that I almost cried with relief.

Anyway, I know your problem sounds alot different. Talk to your nurses also, I know I do, when I don't get the kind of info I'm looking from my Dr's. Sometimes patients tell nurses more than they do Dr's so they know about different things to try.

I do hope you get relief soon. Please keep us updated.

's and ers to you...

hi again

You know the situation! It's like giving birth to a watermelon, when it's just a pea or nothing at all.

Funny enough, here in holland, we are having a heat wave... it's in the high 80's -90's and we don't have A/C except in offices. (Usually don't need it) I have a window in my bathroom which is open all the time now. Gosh, the screams that people must hear. (I live in something like a group of townhouses that surround a courtyard that echos) They must think my husband is beating me on a daily basis, several times a day. I have to smile and laugh at this one... Oh gosh gals, the stories we can write!
