Wife took me to my appointment at 130pm they got me in around 215pm. Going under was no problem, with Propofol. Woke up like nothing happened. Wife was already there, the doctor came in and gave me this news.

An ulcerated 5 cm(which is considered big) mass in my transverse colon.with stigmata of recent bleeding of malignant appearance. He crossed off malignant and wrote indeterminate. I also saw what he set to my doctor and it read malignant neoplasm.

Of course the biopsy results haven't come back yet. Also had some blood taken just to make sure it hasn't spread to other places.

Either way its going to have to be removed, because of possible bowel obstruction problems in the furture if it grows.

The frustrating part, I have the CT scan down which should of showed something that big, but it didn't..

I walked out in a haze, almost like an out of body experience, it was really strange. Spent all day torturing myself looking at cancer stories,  but I guess the transverse part is the worst place to get it.

The only symptoms up to the bleeding I ever had was fluttering where the TC would be when I really excercised hard. That may or may not be related.

My wife and I noticed that the doctor had the 1000 yard stare when he was giving me the news LOL, which is never good.

 

I am going to try to stay positive, Assmuing it is cancer, I will never say why me. I'm 48, and plan to hang around for a long time.

 

Dave

I admire the Stoicism in "not asking why me" part.

All the best to you, man.

op, didn't see neoplasm on the report that you posted. good luck.

i'd suggest honestly, more positive thoughts and be honest. if the political threads get you riled up, even in a good way, it's worth avoiding writing about it imo. avoid stress and changing your diet might help post surgery. take up meditation or chi gung.

If you have colon cancer and they cut out a section will a fist still fit in there?

 

I hope for the best. What will we do without you around here?

There were 2 papers this one for me and one he sent to my primary. I had a chance to read that one, and thats were is talked about it. It definitely had more detail in it.

Thanks dude
