Hi all, it has been a very long time.
I went from happy to down in one single month. Christmas was okay thinking - now I am back onto the road to recovery after my breast cancer treatment ended in November last year.
So I had no reason to think there would be anything ominous in my Bowel Cancer Scan. However they found blood in my stools and off to my doctor, then my surgeon and finally to the Colonoscopy to check it out.
Well, there were two polyps removed and one was soo big it couldn't be. Even my surgeon said he would pray for me! I was crying, and I had to go and meet some friends for lunch - not a very nice experience.
However, a visit to the next surgeon who specialised in these procedures told me I would need surgery to remove this thing. First off she said - we'll just go through the back passage and all will be well. This was on 2nd March this year.
However she said it couldn't be done as it was in a very inaccessible spot. So a month later, on 1st April, I went in to have it taken out through keyhole surgery. I woke up to find more holes in me to make a nervous person jump to the wrong conclusions. Well, at least there was no bag on my tummy! That was a relief.
It took many weeks later to wait for the results of the biopsy and finally a visit back to the surgeon and she told me - Yes it is BENIGN! I have been happier - I can't remember when - oh yes, on the same day my breast surgeon told me about the polyp (he also did my colonoscopy) that my mammogram was all clear!
So now I am smiling once more and happy. I thought you would all like to know that there really IS happiness at the end of the tunnell. I have walked from one tunnell and found daylight - not only that - have found warm, inspiring and life giving energy.
Thank you God as I walk through the rest of my life, may I be protected from that horrible word which also happens to be my birth sign!
I wish you all the very best of health, happiness and wealth in your lives where ever and when ever you are. Remember that you are all deserved of happiness, health and wealth (which doesn't necessarily have to be money by the way)
