the last time was 20 june a week before my fiji holiday.
all checked out, all clear given then. was it just a popped blood vessel.
in my first 3 monthly on checkup.
the first question my onc asked me was "any blood ?"
i said no, none. bowels have been pretty good.
all the blood tests were excellent.
so i called the onc back the next day and leave a message about the blood.
how ironic, the blood arrives the day after the onc visit. i know its not the power of
suggestion, just a flukey co-incidence. but how co-incidental.
i get a callback from my surgeon's office he wants to see me asap friday arvo.
so i had a great day two days ago, was just a little worried. its was daughters birthday. see the post.
yesterday was at my friends funeral he died quickly from aggressive lung cancer.
today is my 45th birthday! all i want for a present is a "no recurrence present"
yes i could be described as an enthusiastic supporter of alternative / complementary therapies.
but just to be balanced i am going to be equally enthusiatic about using our wonderful health system. any little issue i am running to the onc or the surgeon.
i am pleased they responded so promptly, despite me being a bit of a pain with my walking therapy email.
I am asking the universe for the best birthday present ? My bowels have been very different the last few days, lots of gas, explosive poos, drip poos, a little discomfort. so where theres smoke theres fire. i hope this is just another pooped blood vessel, but my stools were getting pretty normal and now they look like poorly formed blobs of mud. i just don't want to miss any warning signs again.
my goal is good looking stools. i know this sounds crazy. perhaps it is.
my health tip, always have the light on when you poo at night, always look at your stool. if its not a goodlooking stool take a photo, i got some shots to show the surgeon when he asks what it looks like. instead of saying well it looks like well shiiit.
