wow what a wild and scary ride on the cancer coaster

Hello my cyber family.i am home now still very weak but at least im home.first let me thank my mother(wolfen) for letting you all know and keeping you updated on my current episode.i started having diareah and the next day it looked a little pink but deep down i told my self no this cant be happening.then the pain in my abnomin became worse and asked my dear husband to take a look(arent spouses wonderful to look at our diareah)and he said that it was blood.so off to the local er we went.thats when the ride began.they wanted to send me to where i get my treatments at and where my onc and surgen are which is 100miles away.got to have my first ambulance ride which wasnt all that because i was in so much pain.by now there was no stool only bright red blood.when it was all over there still was no dission as to what was wrong they finally called my surgen in and i have so much trust in him just seeing his face brightened my spirits.he said he truly thoght it was all due to the irrinatecan and would like to do a colonoscopy in a couple of weeks.i want to thank you all for your prayers and your concerns.my son even joined and said you all are a very special group of people.hope everyone is doing as well as can be sure did miss you all ...theres no place like home....Godbless.....johnnybegood

    I am from the anal cancer board but read the colon cancer posts.  I follow posters journeys, and I am so glad that your home and you will be well taken care of by your drs.  I know that had to be scary.  I wish you well. Lori

    Hi, Baby

    So glad to see that you are feeling well enough to post. I know how awful this was for you.

    How dumb am I? My brain has been so muddled that until I read your post, it didn't even hit me who "Vesix" is, but at least I welcomed him.  LOL  Remember when Michelle called me a "ditzy blond" all those years ago? It's true for sure now. Talk to you soon.

    Love,

    Mom

    So glad you are finally home

    So glad you are finally home and feeling better!!  That stuff is harsh .. I was warned and my doctors kept me on a partial dose from the get go because of its effects.  With an already compromised system, it was the best thing they could have done for me.  I am still having difficulty with heartburn well after tx ended.  

    My best to you and your family!

    I am so glad you are home and stable. I think your surgeon is right about the Irinotecan. I had an episode of uncontrolable diarhea last year. No blood but so bad evan liquids would go right through and I ended up in th er.

    Dear JBG

    So very glad that you have improved enough to get back home.

    Your mom (Wolfen) did a great job of keeping us updated, but there is nothing like hearing from you directly.

    May every day find you better and stronger.

    Hugs,

    Happy homecoming

    So very happy to hear that you are home. I would wait every day to catch an update from your mum.

    I pray you will not have any of that nasty stuff happen again.

    I too live miles from anywhere, 320 mile round trip for my chemo. I know how frightening it can be when you want to be close to your team.

    Big hugs!
