Well, made it through treatment and feeling stronger, better. NED following scans in late March. We moved overseas with the blessings of my oncologist and his belief this was all behind me. I am scheuled for my first 1 yr colonscopy and my first 6 month follow up PET/CT in mid-September.
However....3 months almost to the day after ending treatment, I have observed what appears to be blood in my stool...kind of what it looked like before my diagnosis and forced me to get checked in the first place. It's been 3 days consecutively now. streaks. now i have been eating tomatoes and strawberries...my diet is Mediterranean. the only thing is i recently as of a week ago started eating oatmeal again in the mornings or bran cereals for fiber.
I did send a note to my doctor on the above with a photograph of what I am seeing, but it is the weekend and i am sure i may not hear anything until early next week. My question is - with all of the research i have conducted and not found any comfort - is it likely the cancer has returned and what I am seeing is a bleeding tumor in my colon? after just 3 months of ending treatment?
jind of numb right now and somewhat afraid....
