Sorry to hear all you are going through. Can you explain what pcdf is? It seems to me that the garstroparesis and ibs would be completely separate problems from the swollen node. Swollen nodes are most often swollen due to infection. I'm assuming the doctor has seen this node? Please elaborate on what the doctor has said.
Hi, pcdf is cervical fusion I had due to neuropathy. My doctor told me that she isn't sure what the problem with my lymph node was. She prescribed sulfamethoxazole which is a strong antibiotic. I was told by her to only give this 2 days to start reversing the swelling, since taking the med. it has grown in size and I expect to be in the hospital tomorrow morning. Oddest thing that she couldn't figure it out, she is a great doc. I'll let you know the ending though. thank you so very much for responding!!! danny
