Ok, so I know how this sounds but has anybody ever passed the tumor while going to the bathroom? I think I just did. I was able to retrieve it and have saved it and will show it to my gastroenterologist, but I swear, I think that's what happened. I've been saying all week that I can feel the tumor, I knew the location and that's where the pain was localized, I've been to the bathroom about 20 times today, I've been in agony all day and after passing what I believe was the tumor I can sit on my butt for the first time in two days and I feel nothing inside now. The external pain is still there from the radiation but the internal pain is gone. I don't know if it would change the treatment protocol in any way and maybe isn't even all that unusual--I guess that if the chemo and radiation are killing the tumor, it's going to detach from the wall inside and it would have to go somewhere... so maybe it isn't so unusal.
Has anybody heard of this or experienced it and if so, what effect, if any, did it have on the treatment protocol?
