Still on the pain-14

Date: October 02, 2012

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.

See below a video on a Colon polyp removal with a colonoscope:

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 😦

Day 256 after the surgery…

 

Hi,

As already said in previous post there are still some problems of not natural pain to get sorted out! I made already some new scans and also MRI (IRM en français) and the last one was an echo-graph; a control with ultrasonic… Waiting for Thursday to get the report from my medical, but already knowing that there is something strange!!!

To be continued… :(((

Still on the pain-9


Hi,

Date: January 31, 2012.

Day 71 after the surgery, still some pain and nearly no swelling and hematomas (bruises) anymore, at least this…

I passed a very bad week with a lot of pain (???), no idea what happens, but actually today I feel good. Yesterday I played for +/- 2 hours Darts in my old Pub which I visit since more than 40 years… I didn’t play darts for the last 6 months because of my surgeries, but I felt very good yesterday and I even won most of my matches (legs) and this without having practicing, WOW 😉 was a great feeling, my moral went up and today no problems :))))))))))))))

Pain level is now at 5/10 and the new drugs “Diclofenac” helps me a lot to get away the inflammation in my genitals, slowly but surely… Feeling like having a bit more Power in the body now, hope this will continue and even getting better. I can’t cope anymore with pain; wish to see the day coming without any pain anymore and to feel like a normal human again. I don’t wish even this to my worst enemy, not funny at all :((((

On Thursday 02 February, 2012 I will have the next control in hospital…

Still on the pain-7

Hi,

Date: January 14, 2012.

Day 54 after the surgery, still some pain and nearly no swelling and hematomas (bruises) anymore, at least this…

Pain level is now at 5-6/10 and the new drugs “Diclofenac” helps me a lot to get away the inflammation in my genitals, slowly but surely…

Diclofenac is used commonly to treat mild to moderate post-operative or post-traumatic pain, in particular when inflammation is also present…

I can show my belly again, looks much “normal” again, LOL 😉 Next control in hospital is foreseen for February 05, 2012 and when there is still some pain and inflammation then there will be a new scan made…


Still on the pain-6

Hi,

Date: January 06, 2012.

Day 46 after the surgery, still a lot of pain and nearly no swelling and hematomas (bruises) anymore, at least this…

was in hospital today for a control, again… Pain level is still at 6-6.5/10 and the doctor made a prescription for new drugs…

I am still on pain level 6-6.5/10 which I don’t consider myself as normal after 46 days after the surgery 😦 I asked the doctor who made the surgery for a new scan to find out about what is going on, but he refused this by saying that it is normal for him (???)…

A new control will be on February 02, 2012 and when pain is still there then he will consider this as not normal anymore and ONLY then he will consider for a new scan… I am not feeling happy and confident with such a decision
