Colonoscopy

Still on the pain 19

Day 445 after the surgery… More than 1 year

Pain Scale 6/10The pain is increasing again and I am now on pain scale level 6/10, not knowing what is happening!??? My moral is (???), need to fight hard to net letting me go down! It’s too long anyway, I need to upgrade my courage as I start to rant too much on Social-Media, not good 😦

I am NOT anymore the person I was before the operation, I wish to become the same again as I start to hate myself for what I am now (mentality)! No life quality anymore with chronically pain, it starts slowly to destroy me, even spouse told me that I changed too much; not good at all to hear it from her…

Still on the pain 18

Day 443 after the surgery… More than 1 year

pain scale 4-5/10

I finished all the tests on Urology and the doctor says that there are no Urology problems! OK, good news, but still on the pain which increased again! I am now on 4-5/10 on the pain scale. The doctor told me that I should visit again the surgery doctor, probably there were some nerves touched during the surgery. Will the pain ever go away or must I stay for the rest of my life with it, not feeling confident at all anymore…

I had also a colonoscopy again, 6 months after the last check up as on the last check up a polyp from 2 cm in diameter (0.8 inches) was found. A new polyp was found with already 1 cm diameter (0.4 inches) after only 6 months! On March 19, 2013 I will know then the results…

Never ending story, to be continued…


Still on the pain-14

Day 285 after the surgery…

As I made recently a colonoscopy I had to visit the specialist (I got a phone call to make an appointment) which I did 2 weeks ago. I got explained that they found  a polyp of 2 cm diameter and that the biopsy revealed growing cancer cells in the polyp! I was shocked, but I got told that as long as the cancer cells are ONLY found in the polyps that there isn’t any problem as long as it is not moving into the colon.

I should do now once every year a colonoscopy as a prevention to detect eventually found polyps! But as I am a bit proactive thinking I asked to do the first one already in 6 months, in March 2013.

So, that’s meant that I am now a risk patient!!! But as I did on a regular base (every 2 years) since 14 years already a colonoscopy they detected it by time! I suggest anyway to anybody to do a colonoscopy also up from age 40-45, especially men.

First of all I need to get my brain used to that, that’s the difficult part of it, not easy at all…

I am still on the pain as well and hopefully one day doctors will find out from where it does come, not funny at all to live like that 😦
