How did your appointment go Friday.? Do you have pathology results yet?
Hoping all is well and your feeling better.
Hi Deb, thanks for checking in. I spoke with my doctor on Friday about pathology. Feeling fortunate I was staged at stage 1. The mass was the size of a golf ball but only went through the first layer of the colon. She removed 26 lymph nodes and all came back negative.
As you can imagine a major weight was lifted. And I came out of the appointment with emotions I still didn’t really understand. Relieved but also feeling the overwhelming, I don’t know if it’s guilt or what knowing people come out of those appointments with worse news.
I still am trying to heal the fissure that started all of this, it’s such a pain in the ass literally but I believe it literally saved my life as much as I hate dealing with it. Because otherwise I wasn’t really experiencing any sort of real symptoms. I believe maybe my body was trying to tell me something was wrong on the inside.
My brother had his surgery on Friday which we are now waiting on his pathology. The whole experience for my family has been surreal.
At this time waiting to set an appointment with an oncologist who will monitor me for a while I’m sure. My ct scan did show a mass on my right adrenal gland which they are calling an incidental finding at this time cause it doesn’t seem to be associated with the Cancer, so one worry now shifts to another.
But again feeling very fortunate. And feeling thankful for you and your husband. His story was the first that I could find that seemed somewhat similar to mine so I will forever be grateful.
