I emailed both my MO and PCP (who I have had major fight with, just have not had energy to change dr), MO said contact PCP who said come in for appt. I will be seeing him tomorrow.
I had been having some low level nauseau for awhile (started letrozole Dec 1) and blamed the nauseau on that, no vomiting tho. Then about 5 weeks ago I was sitting at my desk (home office TG), and all of a sudden was like "I'm going to puke NOW". Luckily I had a cardboard box next to me cause I was NOT going to make it to bathroom. Proceeded to vomit every 15 sec's (not jokiing!) for the next hour and a half. It has happened 4 more times since then. One time my daughter called the after hours clinic who wanted to see me. Sorry not getting in a car like this, so she called on call MO who just happened to be my Dr. He prescribed Zofran (bless him!) and said stop taking Letrozole a few days and see if you start feeling better. I did start feeling better and took liberties with the "a few days" part. Thought I had clearly established the Letrozole was the prob and on day 11 it happened again! In Home Depot! And I was a happy camper that day no stress or anything. Was stuck in HD bathroom for 45 min before a kind employee came to my rescue. Turns out hubby was right outside the OPEN restroom door the entire time and could not hear me puking, and never thought to call in to me because 45 min in the john is a bit long???? LOL.
NO warning with any of these. Just doing my thing, all well, and boom! I'm going to puke. No pain anywhere including stomach at least not until I start barfing. I do feel bloated after eating just a little bit, and have almost completely lost my appetite in last 6 weeks or so. Have to make myself eat. Oh and I have had a few episodes of BIG belching. not burping but full on man belching. Roll over, belch, sit up belch, stand up fart. goes on for 24 hours then stops. back to normal burping.
I know my PCP will say its just stress. That is his answer to everything. Its either stress or menopause. Mind you menopause was over 4 years ago, I've felt great since, no symptoms. Last time he said my probs were caused by menopause (back in Jan or FEb) I blew my cork and said don't start with that BS. Then he blew his cork and said I will be treated respectfully, and if you don't trust my skills you need another dr! One it's not disrespectful to disagree with you and 2 yes I need a new dr (I can't tell you how many things he has misdiagnosed, but the best was my daughters infected full of stones gall bladder as constipation!).
Does this sound familiar to anyone? Anything I should ask DR to think about tomorrow? If he says its stress I will say maybe, but only way I will believe there is nothing wrong is if you scan me from throat to privates and nothing shows up. Maybe that would be enough to set my miind at ease?
I didn't think I would be one to be worried about relapse or mets but I guess I was wrong. May I please join the club? To have someone to talk to?
