weisssoccermom, YES, your "assumptions" are all correct--signatures so tell the "story" don't they. Yes, they did Sig one week prior to reversal. Found "red blotches" and took a biopsy. . .Surgeon said it was nothing to be concerned over and proceeded with take down. Biopsy clear. I thought that the pain he still experiences is from "blotches"??
Yes! So hard not to "think too much" or "read into" things. Our Oncologist, whom I just am so thankful we have (glad he was on call that horrid day at the ER), has scheduled Billy for blood every month and also scheduled another CT April 24--even though he just had one end of January. I fight my thoughts that this is a very "aggressive" follow-up and try not worry, but I fail sometimes. . ..like the blood in stool.
Of which, I secretly watch for every time he has a movement. (I got DH to "save" stool and not flush till I got a chance to see it so I could note progress with his new plumbing--but really, I have learned that if there is blood in it, the blood will come out--cause iron is heavier?--and pool in the bottom--making no mistake that it is blood). Since the other night, all but one "production" has shown red blood. Again . . .trying not to lose it again, but GEEZ!!! IT'S GETTING HARD NOT TO!!! LOL!
His hernia is in the Subcostal addomin region (right over his liver) and according to the hernia surgeon is "more difficult to repair" because there are limited muscle areas to sew mesh to. . .Surgeon also thinks his liver is trying to "ooze" thru ribs to get thru the hernia hole and that could be why Billy gets nauscious a lot even though he has not had chemo since Nov 1, 2012 (caused a heart attack--different story
) Surgery is scheduled for next Tuesday the 8th.
I think. .. Could hernia cause blood?? then I remember that it would be tarrish/dark going thru entire system vs blood red. I'll continue to think positive as much as I can as you guys have said. . .probably is the reversal, the procedures endured, a hemmorid. .. .ANYTHING BUT THE MONSTER!!
I am hugging each and every one of you thru the club. .. . hope you can feel it
