Had my colonoscopy today not good

I have cancer.

They sent me right from the colo to get a CAT scan to see if it has metastasized. I'll know more on that tomorrow or the next day.

I will need surgery to remove the tumor. I meet with surgeon on Friday.

The Dr. said they know a lot about colon cancer and how to beat it.

I messaged with Turshnurse and she said kinda the same thing- Told me that the chemo for this kind of cancer doesn't cause a lot of nausea and hair loss etc. Maybe they will get it all with the surgery. Maybe I'll need more.

When you're going through hell, keep going. Right?

Diabetes or not, I'm probably going to have a doughnut tonight. (I don't drink....) :-)

Here's to hope!

My cousin (age 65) had always refused to get a colonoscopy until he had bleeding and some real issues. He had a cancerous tumor the size of a softball.

It's 8 years later and he's fine. It was a not so fun year of treatment, but it was worth it.

My BFF had a colonoscopy and they found cancer 2 years ago. She only had to have surgery and is now fine.

No one wants to have any kind of cancer, but it doesn't have to be a death sentence these days.

((Minnesota))) You will be in my prayers.

Keep us posted.

Hey MN, I just got home and was thinking its halfway through March and I haven't done my " March is colorectal cancer awareness month get your colonoscopy" post yet this year.
Sometimes surgery is the cure, sometimes it's not they won't know until they get the pathology from surgery back. In the meantime enjoy your donut but don't backslide on the progress you've made.
To heal and recover from anything your body needs healthy fats and good protein. You need to focus on eating clean until surgery and then making sure you're getting plenty of quality calories after.
We are all sending Mojo prayers and healing thoughts your way.
(((And Strength))))

Well shit. No one likes getting this kind of news.

But I agree with the others. Lots of positive possibilities here.

You got this...and we are here with you!

I will save the butt jokes for when this is all behind you.......
