A Surprise!

I took an early retirement last April 2016. My husband and I planned on traveling and spending more time with the grandchildren. That year we went on pilgrimages to Poland and Ireland. Early 2017 we went to the Philippines to visit family and see places in the Philippines where we haven't been. We stayed there for two months since both of us are already retired. My husband retired in 2006 and was just waiting for me.

Im married of 10 years and have 4 children, 3 boys and a girl! My mother has myelofibrosis and has been going through this for about 10 years. Although she was only actually diagnosed with this 4 years ago. She has been sick and struggling from day to day for a very long time. I remembe her being ill  10 years ago and wasn't able to be at my wedding.

Help Needed to understand

A week ago tomorrow Aug 31, I had emergency surgery for a blockage in my colon and a mass was found.  My local hospital has a site where patients can log-on and see test results.  I did that today and my pathology test results said the following:  Mastastic Adenocareinoma, Lynch Screening, Lymph vascular Invasion and Invasive Carcinoma.

 

can anyone tell me what all this means.  I see the Doctor on Thursday, August 31, 2017 but I'd like to go into this with the appropriate questions and not be blind sided.

 

thanks.

The start of week 3...

So, the first two weeks of treatment have been a bit up and down. Chemo day is Tuesday, and so far Jim has been fine with each chemo treatment, until Friday rolls around. The first weekend was GI related problems, last weekend he got a cold plus the GI related problems. He ends up not eating much for 3-4 days each week. Radiation-related symptoms have started to kick in, so his taste buds have essentially stopped working. Nothing tastes good, he doesn't feel good, so he doesn't eat. He's already hampered by having no teeth to eat with, so having no taste for food is rather devastating.

Facing Your Enemas - Again!

I originally wrote Facing Your Enemas in 2009 as a tongue in cheek (figurative, not literal) message about the importance of colonoscopies, and my close brush with a very devastating cancer diagnosis.  As it was, I had been diagnosed with early stage colorectal cancer, and my prognosis was excellent, except that I’d need more frequent ‘oscopies to make sure it didn’t return.  Well, it did, and this time it got a bit further, but it’s still quite treatable.  So this story is a bit more sobering.

Facing Your Enemas

Once upon a time, discussions of this sort would have creeped me out.  Now that I’ve matured, and learned the facts of life, it’s a lot easier to talk or write about these things – maybe too easy…

Goning to start my radiation in 2 weeks.  I found everyone so informative and helpful.  I am nervous but try to keep postive.
