Hey guys, it's Christy here, I've posted many times about myself. Next week I finally have an appt with the surgeon to get my port put in and then I can start chemo in June.
My father went into the hospital on Monday, he went to see a GI doc about a colonscopy consult, after a recent petscan showed a huge growth with an SUV uptake of 11, mine was only 6.2 and was only 3.2 cm, his is in the sigmoid and it looks wretched, the colonscopy pics look horrid, worse than my mom's or mine ever looked. He is going to have surgery with my surgeon next week hopefully and have a total collectomy I am sure. The doc doesn't know what stage it is, but the PetScan didn't show any growth to the bones, or liver, and his lung cancer seems to have disappeared. This cancer has grown since February, when he had his last PetScan, it stated so on the report. My Dad is 71, he was pretty ****** when he found out, considering this is his 5th cancer, 1 bladder with a removal and ostomy, and then abdominal tumor that was malignant, and he had his left lung removed after my mom died of colon cancer, then had a reoccurance of lung cancer and now this.
I am numb to it all now. My sisters were balling, but I just remained myself and didn't say anything, I am used to it now as horrible as that sounds. It's funny I know the lingo so well the doctors think that I am a doctor!
well I just wanted to vent and say hey to everyone.
