    That's great to hear. Big hugs - it's all horrible but hopefully it improves soon.

    Just thought I'd chime in about the Zofran. I also found it expensive of course but if you ask the chemist for the generic version it works out to be half price. I was paying $25 for 10 tablets which was better than $50 for 10! But you must ask them as they won't offer it to you
    I had severe MS until at least 20 weeks so the Zofran saved me

    $75 for 10 x 8mg wafers that i got were generic brands.

    I just dont think it works for me. Ive been throwing up all day. Im at the point where ill have a big drink because even though its going to come up 15min later, at least im getting something down. Ill give food a miss altogether. Ive been throwing up blood everytime.

    Blood doesn't sound good at all . Were the hospital happy to let you go even with that happening? You poor thing.

    Yeh they didnt really mention it. They gave me protein blockers in my IV (protein pump inhibitors someone told me). To stop my stomach making acid for a while so as not to aggrevate anything internally. Though they were too concerned with my flat, non existant veins to mention anything else. It wasnt just a little bit of streaking either. TMI: I hadnt had anything to eat prior to throwing up (just a glass of water), and i was throwing up red.

    They did take my blood (very painfully) to test and make sure i didnt throw up enough blood for it to be a problem. They didnt mention any thing that could cause it, or prevent it though.

    Gosh it sounds dreadful and I imagine very painful too. I hope the next time you go in that they are able to do something more.
