    I solved the problem of worrying about snagging those dang tubes by keeping them tucked into my underpants. Worked like a charm.

    David….one member titled his post: “Tubeless in Seattle” and “Tubeless in Colorado” sounds equally as great. So happy for you.
    Hugs,

    DAvid……Iowa Falls isn’t that far from me….about a 2 hour drive maybe. We’re in the Cedar Rapids area.

    You bet. Hey, my family comes from Iowa Falls on both sides. :)

    David…..keep on enjoying the tubeless status and better sleep. Good sleep is not overrated!!! I’m so glad to hear that you are ready for the next step in your battle with CC. Let us know what your oncologist has up his sleeve.

    Thanks! I feel a lot better already. I slept good last night for the first time in ages! It’s nice not to have to worry about snagging those tubes or pulling them in my sleep.

    I’m ready for the next step in this battle and to keep on fighting!

    David the soreness will go away soon. The good news is you still have options for treatment. Will be interesting to see what the ONC comes up with. Hang in and hang on and wishing you the very best!

    I guess I was tired of waiting, because on Monday night I had severe abdominal pain so we had another trip to the ER. I ended up staying until yesterday, but they removed my tubes and put in internal stents. The bad news is I have to go have that done again in 6 weeks to have larger ones installed. Does the good news never end? ;)

    It does feel good to be tubeless, although I’m still sore. Next up is to see what my oncologist has in store for me, be it more chemo, and/or the immunotherapy trial.
