    Well just had surgery

    Had what I thought was a stomach virus two weeks on a Sunday. By Wednesday I knew I had a problem. I could not use the bathroom at all. Called rescue as I could not drive or get out of bed. They took me in and admitted me into the emergency room. The trauma team at Shands in Gainesville are great.

    Anyway I got a cat scan and they found a mass in my colon. Yep cancer. They took me into surgery and gave me a colostomy after they released pressure on my bowels. I am home after a week and 2 days in the hospital. Still learning how to do things different. After my incision heals I will start chemo. We will see how that goes. Twelve rounds once every two weeks. Will appreciate your thoughts.

    For those over 50 keep your tests up to date, but don't fully trust them. I had a colonoscopy 3 years ago they said was completely clean. I took it because I had some things I was worried about. But after they said I was clean I overlooked it until I had the blockage.

    Prayers for you. I am thankful that all my problems are heart or vascular related though neither is any fun.

    Glad they caught it and prayers for a full recovery.

    I had a colonoscopy last year and they removed one large polyp(cancerous type).Told me not to recheck for 5 yeears.Kinda makes me wonder if I should request one sooner.

    All I can say is do what they say, but know and do not ignore the symptoms. Unfortunately I did because they said I was completely clean, and probably not. Just hidden maybe.

    Certainly prayers are going out for you. Hope you get better fast enough to amaze the doctors.
    Kinda of makes me wonder why the doctor says I only need a colonoscopy every 10 years.
    Of course, one never knows what is going to come for them.
    Best wishes and Prayers for you and yours.
