Cancer - Round 2

62 posts in this topic

I've been recovering from mouth cancer and the subsequent treatment for the last 6 1/2 years. The treatment left me unable to swallow so I'm fed through a PEG tube, which is a tube directly into my stomach. I have to have the tube changed every few years and I went in for the procedure two weeks ago. All seemed to go OK (apart from a row with the nurse over meds and me discharging myself!!).

 I had a letter a few days later asking me to go for a ct scan and then see the Max Fax consultant. I went for the scan last Friday but the nurse was unable to inject the agent which makes things show up in the scan. They did the scan without it. So Monday I go to see the consultant who says they've found a 'lesion' in my stomach. The 'half' scan and the biopsies they took when they changed the tube were inconclusive but they clearly thought it was cancer.

 As the lesion is in my stomach it's no longer Max Fax territory so I've been referred to Upper GI Cancer Dept. I saw them on Thursday and they want to redo all the tests including biopsies and a proper scan. They haven't said it's cancer yet but they have told me it's situated where my old PEG tube was. The tube has a ball on the end to stop it being pulled out. It seems this ball has been irritating the stomach wall and caused this dodgy patch. I'm waiting now for more tests and a date to go in for the day.

 

 I'm all over the place at the moment. It's the not knowing that's the killer. Monday I was positive I had cancer again and by Friday I'm not sure where I stand!

Mate I hope you get diagnosed soon  and it's a positive outcome.  I've had my own issues with health and the waiting ( which dragged on interminably) was so stressful that was making me feel as bad as the original symptoms . 

 

You deserve a bit  of a break man

Not yet. One of my mates popped over as soon as he found out with 35 gms of high THC oil. We have a new CBD shop locally where the guy makes it himself - I'll have a chat with him. My idea is for a THC/CBD/Manuka Honey mix. Problem is my peg tube. I can't afford to get it blocked. I can swallow small amounts but only something runny. I need the recipe of a drink I can swallow. I'm thinking if the lesion is in my stomach, by swallowing I'd get direct contact between oil and tumour.

 

Thanks for all your supportive comments, guys. Much appreciated.
