Hello guys - I really need your help/info/advice and input.
Recent History: I am now 6 weeks post-op on a rt hemi (I found where 10 was on the pain scale!) - Starting to feel good again and learning where the "new normal" is! Pathology report reads as "......11.2cm x 5cm flat adenoma located at the Heppatic flexure with high grade dysplasia.... Lymph nodes clear..." - so I guess that makes me a Stage 0. Doc says "..that while you didn't actually HAVE colon cancer, because of your pathology during the last 6 years we will continue to monitor and treat you as if you did. No chemo - no radiation and yearly colonoscopies (as compared to every 6 months due to polyps). Sounds great to me with a real reason to celebrate
And then last week I get a call from his PA and she says: After further pathology review of the entire right half of my colon that they took out that the pathologist states there appears to be evidence (tumor? Cell? Billboard?) of "Ovarian Cancer" within my colon. The pathologist had this referred to and confirmed by another pathologist and they both concur in their findings. B U T - I had a complete and total hysterectomy with oopherectomy SIX YEARS AGO due to numerous cysts, nonmalignant tumors, and endometriosis! I do not have any ovaries and HAVE NOT HAD ANY for over 6 yrs!
Now they are presenting my "case" to the monthly "Tumor Board" for review and recommendations
Any one have any ideas? Ever heard of this?
I am so grateful that I haven't had to endure what a lot of people on here have, but it seems like this never ends. This has been going on for 6 years - I also have Barrett's Esophogus (yearly endos), Skin cancer on lower rt eyelid (6 surgeries including having my eye sewn shut for 5 weeks)! There is always more tests, more procedures, more docs to see.. Somehow I just want to have to deal with working, husband, and kids!
Thank every one and sorry about the length of post!
