Re: Colon Mass Pain subsided

Yvana, I hope you get good results from your PET and colonoscopy, but am also happy to see that if not surgery is scheduled for the next day. I suffered intermittent pain for a year before diagnosis. I started a blog months ago on Blogspot to document my story, just never got past the first post. Y...

Re: Colon Mass Pain subsided

Sure hope you are getting your PET results tomorrow. I remember hearing they can have those ready very quickly. Having pain and not knowing why is very disconcerting. If you are having pain on the right side that is the ascending colon. That is the beginning of the large intestine and it is much mor...

Re: Colon Mass Pain subsided

I didn’t get to see the CT report from my dx ER visit but I had a mass right at the caecum. I had been having on and off pain for 2 months before they did the CT. I would wake up with terrible cramping occasionally and be in so much pain but then it would go away and I would be fine for a few days....

Re: Colon Mass Pain subsided

Oh Ok Thanks for that Beth. I haven't experienced the pain for about 10 days now (just occasional random slight pulling-type minor cramping twinges. Eating or using the bathroom doesn't seem to make any difference). My pain is on an angle from the point between the belly button and right hip going d...

Re: Colon Mass Pain subsided

Well before surgeon felt the abdomen he said that it could possibly be fecal matter or gas (ha ha, yeah right). But after exam and he saw how tender the area was for me, he said that we needed to get additional testing as soon as possible. I asked about diverticul. but he did not respond to that. (a...

Re: Colon Mass Pain subsided

Yes, just how a mass that size could go undetected in a colonoscopy just 3 mos prior(?!)... The reaction from surgeon who knows of the GI doctor who did the colonoscopy was not a good one (which makes me wonder if he's heard of this same scenario about this GI doctor before). The doctor at the ER sa...

Re: Colon Mass Pain subsided

Thank you. Yes, pet scan Wed and colonoscopy next week. Surgeon says that even given what CT report said and my answers to questions, it still may not be 'something' (but he hadn't yet actually seen the xray yet at the time of consult appt), and that "definitely, yes, it should be checked out.&...

Colon Mass Pain subsided

Hello, I am new to this board. I was given a CT scan at the hospital emerg dept when I went in for right side abdominal pain and tenderness that had gradually gotten worse over a 4-day period (I thought it was probably appendicitis). The results of CT were an: "ill-defined soft tissue mass lesi...
