This week has been so hard for me... My son just joined and left to the Marines
, and My husband just found out he had cancer in one of his polyps 3 days ago
... I have been on internet searching and found this site; my husband wanted me to see if any other Gulf War Vet got the same thing.. well I did as he asked and came to this board and went right to the source and behold, all my worries have went down... thanks to reading all your posts!
His VA Doc told him it was 1 above, the size of the tip of your index finger (I think that means the stage 1), that the biospy from the Colonoscopy did have cancer and he needs to go in in October 12th for further talking (?)
I have read numerous post, and did research, my Hubby's right now at work and he doesn't know this
, but after reading your posts, I called my sister-in-law, she just told me on the phone that his Grandma (God Bless Her Soul)
died from it 15 years ago, it started in her colon and went to her liver and on, my husband thinks it was liver cancer.
Past couple days he didn't want anyone to know he didn't want anyone feeling bad for him... Now that I found out from this site, it is hereditary, we will need to make his whole family know and thank god
we know for our children's future health.
This site has given me so much hope... and I copied and pasted alot of the posts for him to read tomorrow morning with his coffee and maybe he will be like CancerDad and join in...
We have a large family on his side... everyone needs to know now... how important it is to get checked early.
And you guys and gals just given us the answers to what was needed to be known.. and such great support and answers for all sufferers out there of this disease. Thank you All and Good Health and keep up the great time you spend for others.... Bless you all
Thank You, Marina
