I think it is time to give an update to let my blogging friends know what is happening. If you are on FB and belong to the CWB group you already know.
Nearly 6 years ago I had a hysterectomy for cancer of the womb. Ever since then I have had abdominal pain which I can live with, but sometimes it becomes quite severe. At check ups I was told it would be adhesions but should not cause any problems.
The past year, particularly the last 6 months it has caused more problems but I was still told it was adhesions which it still might be.
In the beginning of December I had severe pains and had to go to the Emergency Department. An ultrasound showed that I have a lot of gallstones and will have to have my gallbladder removed. I mentioned at the same time about the abdominal pains because I wondered if it might be connected.
A colorectal consultant examined me and said she could feel what she thought might be scarring and arranged for me to have a CT scan. The scan results showed that I have significant changes in the pelvic area.
On Monday I had an appointment at the Oncology/Gynaecology clinic. The consultant told me that the result of the scan concerns him and it could be a return of cancer. It is not definite but he said he has to tell me the worst case scenario. It also could still be adhesions or a kink or twist in my bowel. I have a biopsy on the area that is causing concern on Monday. I will also be having another CT scan, this time of the chest area but don't yet have the date for that.
I also have an appointment with the colorectal consultant next Wednesday.
That is as much as I know but I will keep you all updated.
I won't be blogging regularly for the time but will keep Eric's posts scheduled. I may visit a few blogs to comment but it won't be on a regular basis.
I know how supportive the blogging community is, but I would still ask you if you could keep me and Ivor in your thoughts. Thank you.
I can't do a post without a photo of our little man, so here's Flynn.
