Today I had some Fantastic News

Recommended Posts

After months of worrying. Today I finally found out that I do not have Cancer.

I have been suffering with pain and Bowel problems for months with blood and constant sickness and pain. As you can imagine you start to fear the worst so I went to my GP in October who immediately booked me in for tests and to see a specialist.

At first it was pretty quick I had an ultrasound within a week followed by an appointment to see the specialist the next who gave me a prostate exam straight away, It was swollen and enlarged but he said not to worry lets wait for the other tests.

So the first week of December I went in for a Endoscopy and a Colonoscopy at the same time , The Endoscopy went great although uncomfortable they saw everything they needed too, But the Colonoscopy could only go so far because my intestines have too tight a loop for the camera. So they had to book me in for a CT Scan which happend Dec 22 .

So Because of Christmas I did not get any news or Results till Today, And I was told it is not Cancer.

I still have more tests to go but I am not worried. Diagnosis so Far Stomach Ulcers non Cancerous Polyp's and a Sliding Hiatus Hernia around 5cm.

The Meds I am now on seem to be dealing with the pain and a lot of the stomach problems so its looking not to bad hopefully i will be back to work ASAP.

The only reason I did not mention it sooner there was a lot of bad news over Christmas and you guys did not need anymore so I kept it to myself (In fact me and Donna did not tell the kids either no point in worrying them)

But Its all good Thanks for reading and I hope you All have a blessed and healthy year.

Hey brother, glad to hear the good news.  Do me a favor & get checked for H. Pylori?  Just on the off-chance it's the cause of your ulcers.  Here's a link about it:  https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/h-pylori/symptoms-causes/syc-20356171

80-90% of ulcers are caused by H. Pylori.
