So ............. the news is back from the gastro-enterologist - and it isn't great.
They found a golf-ball size cancerous tumor in the transverse colon. Totally unexpected and even the surgeon was shocked. It is an ugly little sucker - yes, he had a photo from the camera that went visiting my insides.
So the wonderful news is that they found this. Totally unexpected yes, but not too late. The CT scan results are not in yet, to determine if there has been any spread, but hopefully by tomorrow we will have more answers.
Now what .............
Well tomorrow I get to go home. Am so pleased with that - need some time with my family in my space. I am allowed out for a week or so and then return to hospital on Sunday 7th October for another disgusting prep - yes that horrible colonoscopy liquid. They will also prepare me for surgery etc.
Monday 8th will be surgery day and then I will in hospital for 5-10 days depending on healing. Histology and spread, will determine if I require chemotherapy and that we will know after the surgery.
How do I feel?
Well surprisingly I am okay! I am not sure if I am just in shock? But, I don't think so - I am an extremely positive person and this is a lesson that I obviously have to have.
I am grateful for my amazing family, for my doctors, for my friends and for the rest of my health. Will keep you all updated through the blog or my FB page, so keep an eye out.
