Most of you know that I was diagnosed in August with Colon Cancer. I am very fortunate that is was discovered early. It could have been another 3-5 years before it was discovered. I went to the ER in June for lower right abdominal pain, was diagnosed with colitis and was referred to a specialist. A colonoscopy was scheduled. Turns out colitis was nothing but a simple inflammation. However, polyps and a cancerous mass were discovered, totally unrelated to what brought me there in the first place. I underwent surgery in September and the mass was successfully removed. 24 lymph nodes were also removed for testing. 1 of the 24 tested positive for cancer...and so begins the next part of this journey, chemo treatments.
