Narrative of Colorectal Cancer Diagnosis
The day prior to my colonoscopy on Friday, September 2nd I mentioned to my partner, Kathy, that if medical doctors recognized something then it was likely our errand to her parents would be placed on hold. You realise I had a strong suspicion that something was bad. Of track, the first thing that comes to mind is the C-word( cancer ).
Let me prologue all of this by saying that I am far away from a neurotic. In happening, I would be the anti-hypochondriac. I never go to the doctor even when I know things are wrong. I have never been the sort to run to the doctor at the first sight of hurting or a sniffle. In reality, I had possibly been having a few symptoms for awhile and I never did nothing about it. But this was different. I knew my organization and felt that happenings weren’t functioning as they should.
As my principal are working to shake the cobwebs of the anesthesia from the colonoscopy, my doctor gave me the story that I had been dreading. There was a proliferation in the lower part of my colon( or the upper part of my rectum) that looked suspicious. They were mailing 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 further tests lope and to adjudicate what course of action that would be necessary.
Your world can come gate-crash to a halt in a few moments. 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 only 4 months earlier. She is 43 and the mother of 3 children. My uncle was diagnosed in January of 2011. He died about 2 week before my diagnosis. He had a mere 8 months between diagnosis and death. These thoughts and others run through your chief when you get the report. Cancer can be a frightening diagnosis.
