I have worked in the Health care field for most of my adult career. I DO NOT use Walgreen’s due to one experience when attempting to fill pain medication from a highly respected . from the moderately sized city in which live. My medical HX is a long series of misdiagnosis, failure to treat, and other non-professional actions/dis-actions, that caused me to be taken out of work by a team of medical professionals. I tested + for Lyme dx, co-infections, rocky spotted mountain fever, septicemia, severe uveitis/Iritis (2 yr acute with zero response using methotrexate and pounding with steroids from every source, pnemoccocal pneumonia, and shortly after arriving by ambulance when into hypoxic respiratory arrest. I spent 1 month in ICU,my prognosis was ‘Guarded”. I am 52 yrs old. Live alone with young grown kids all out on their own earning their own living and succeeding. I was in a VERY abusive situation, while I was sick,recovering and in Hosp. he cleaned me out. Drained every penny I Had saved when I was working my last job as a Home Health & Hospice Nurse; he took ,$. The Bank(BOA) said they could do ‘nothing’ because he has found my pin. I realize this has little 2 do with the subject matter at hand. But I just wanted top[int out that MANY of not MOST of us dealing with ongoing Chronic pain conditions are often in situations that are “FAR, FAR ‘from easy. The LAST thing we need is going to get a medication that a Medical Dr. has ordered for a DO NOT agree the pharmacist should have ANY, NONE, NO BUSINESS making judgement calls what-so-ever. At least not in my case. And in many more i am sure. We are not choosing to have medical illnesses that leave many of us baffled, weak, disoriented,scared. and often wish All my fellow patients the best of Luck, hope you don’t get Harassed, and are treated with dignity and respect that you deserve!! Thank you. I have a GOFUNDME acct. which I had too set up to help me get heat, transportation,and so i can keep my Mobile Home as I really have no help and Its hard to get any supports no matter how bad your situation is. Its Oct. 10th and i still have no heat as of yet in my . I have an appt. for fuel asst. in Dec.. Good Luck all and God will help you, keep your FAITH. It did help me a lot! Janice Brady
Treatment: If a pancreatic or liver tumor is identified and able to be surgically excised, the skin lesions may normalize for an extended period of time, but because these tumors metastasize (spread to other areas of the body) quickly, surgery is not curative. In cases of end stage liver disease, surgery is not possible, and the goal of therapy is to increase quality of life and decrease uncomfortable skin lesions with supportive care and addressing the nutritional abnormalities. Supportive care includes supplementing protein and necessary minerals and enzymes through the diet and oral supplements or by weekly intravenous amino acid infusions that are performed in the hospital on an outpatient basis until improvement in the skin is noted. Unfortunately, despite the supportive care, the disease will progress.
