Legend of Colorectal Cancer Diagnosis
The day prior to my colonoscopy on Friday, September 2nd I mentioned to my bride, Kathy, that if medical doctors spotted something then it probably our expedition to her mothers would be put on hold. You construe I had a strong suspicion that something was incorrect. Of track, the first thing that comes to mind is the C-word( cancer ).
Let me preamble all of this by saying that I am far from a neurotic. In knowledge, I would be the anti-hypochondriac. I never go to the doctor even when I know things are wrong. I have never been the sorting to run to the doctor at the first sight of suffering or a sniffle. In point, I had possibly been having a few symptoms for awhile and I never did anything about it. But this was different. I knew my person and sensed that things weren’t functioning as they should.
As my head are working to shake the cobwebs of the anesthesia from the colonoscopy, my doctor gave me the news that I had been horror. There was a emergence in the lower part of my colon( or the upper part of my rectum) that seemed suspicious. They were moving it out to be biopsied and would hopefully have research results in 24 hours but he was fairly certain that we were looking at cancer. I was admitted to the hospital to have farther assessments lope and to measure what course of action that would be necessary.
Your world can come crash to a stall in a moment. Life is fragile. Life is uncertain. No one is guaranteed a tomorrow and now there was a possibility that my tomorrows might be limited.
My wife’s cousin had been diagnosed with breast cancer simply 4 months earlier. She is 43 and the mother of 3 children. My uncle was diagnosed in January of 2011. He lived about two weeks before my diagnosis. He had a mere 8 months between diagnosis and fatality. These thoughts and others run through your ability when you get the story. Cancer can be a frightening diagnosis.
