Re: Very worried - would like advice

There are other options like diverticulitis, Crohn, colitis etc.
You need to wait for results of the colonoscopy.
There is no way around these waiting times.

Re: Right-side vs. left side

If you have a tumor on the right side (near the appendix) then you might want to read up on the right-sided vs. left -sided tumor issue. There are several members here who have looked into this issue. . https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2016/05/18/whether-colon-cancer-is-on-the-...

Please keep track of your temperature and pain.
You may want to see a doctor again if they fluctuate or go up.
These may be signs of active infection.

Re: Just found out I have cancer

I am scared, and frightened of the future. I know I am supposed to be positive, but dont know how. Please do not feel obligated to feel positive. According to the latest science, it's OK to be said.

Re: O/T Need to vent

Apparently, even though the policy was mine originally, because I added a man he became the primary driver on the policy. I do no believe that this can happen automatically. Was he made a primary driver because of his better/longer driving history? Who is a policyholder? I believe that a policyhold...
