Re: Husband new pain in right side to stomach area

Forums General Melanoma Community Husband new pain in right side to stomach area Re: Husband new pain in right side to stomach area


      Okay – It's Friday – he has finally gone to  work..Stomach area still uncomfortable….did not work on Tues, Weds, and about an hour yesterday…..He still says it is a pulled muscle or only very bad gas…Oh, my goodness….he is so optomistic, and I guess I am doom and gloom…what a pair we make.  He will have to have very bad to severe pain before he goes to the doctor…I think in nearly 43 years of marriage he's probably only gone to the doctor 4 to 5 times.

      Deep breath, relax, taking a soaking tub bath tonight, with candles and a small glass of wine…trying to relax and not to worry.  Thanks to everyone who responded to me.   It's really hard.

      Take Care,

      Sherron, wife to Jim
