My husband began bleeding rectally three weeks ago. It was off and on till thurs when it became much worse. We both left our jobs and headed to ER. He was admitted ASAP. We told them of his past kidney removal due to caner in 2006. He has been scanned every year without fail both lower body and lungs and has had colonoscopy and endoscopy on regular basis. They determined the blood was coming from his lower intestine. They did emergency surgery as he had lost 5 pints of blood. Dr. came out saying his small intesitne was full of tumors. They took only the ones that were not life threatening and leaving others stating he would not survive the removal of those. I am in total shock. This in not curable at this stage and he is looking at paliative care chemo (pill form). We thought we were doing all the right things by staying on top of things and he has not been sick at all.....no stomach pains, no nothing,,,,,,not even weight loss. Now this. Just wondering if anyone else has had this happen. it's extrememly rare.
