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.
