3rd chemo done....5 to go. Trying to stay positive. Almost halfway 💙 #rectalcancer #chemotherapy #cancersucks #cancerfighter

Since today kicks off colorectal cancer awareness month I figured it would be an appropriate time to post this. In January I was diagnosed with rectal cancer. Prior to this I had no idea what colorectal cancer was, what the signs and symptoms were and how to screen early for it. For close to two years I had clear mucus in my stool on and off and more recently started seeing small amounts of red blood when I wiped. I blamed the mucus on my diet and the blood on hemorrhoids. Concerned, my wife scheduled me an appointment with the G.I. doctor. He wasn't all that concerned and thought I might have a minor case of colitis but decided to schedule a colonoscopy to be certain. When I woke up from this procedure I immediately knew something wasn't right and was then given the news nobody ever wants to hear. It has been a long and bumpy six weeks with many highs and lows but we are very hopeful with the road ahead. I'm not posting this for sympathy or for anyone to feel bad for me. Colorectal cancer, and many other kinds of cancer are preventable and treatable if caught early. If your body tells you something isn't right, don't ignore it and go to the doctor! I had no risk factors, no family history, and felt completely fine. My G.I. doctor told me I "saved my life by getting a colonoscopy". If this post causes one person to schedule a doctors appointment because they feel something isn't right with their body then I am happy. Cancer doesn't care who you are; no social status, color or creed can hide from it. #rectalcancer #cancersucks #crcawareness #fuckcancer #coloncancer

In 7 days... my new normal? #cancersucks #cancer #rectalcancer #colostomy #urostomy

Still here, alive & kicking. Don't usually post much but thought I'd share the rollercoaster ride I've been on recently. It's been 6 months to the day I had my life turned upside down & was diagnosed with stage III rectal cancer. 6 weeks of chemotherapy & intensive radiotherapy, 5 days in hospital between christmas & new year's, an anxious 10 week wait before surgery, 10 days in hospital post operative recovery & now 5 weeks on I'm starting to feel like myself again albeit minus a some plumbing. A further 5 months chemo begins tomorrow to clear out any nasties still floating around. All this whilst trying to complete a house renovation (something I would not recommend while dealing with cancer!). I can't express how lucky I've been to have my better half & supermum @nat_willow to look after me, keep me grounded & basically be the rock she has whilst it felt like our lives were spinning out of control. I'm eternally grateful to have you by my side x #bowelcanceraustralia #bowelcancerawareness #rectalcancer

Follow up to my rectum surgery resection yesterday! This is the APR surgery or abdominal perineal resection. The rectum and the anus are at the very most distal end of the colon. A tumor involving the rectum close to the anus, or the anus itself has to be surgically removed to save the patients life. This surgery sucks. I will start at the top photo. This is an illustration showing the colon before, and after the rectum and anus is removed. As you can see, after the surgery, the patient has to get a colostomy bag. The second photo shows the surgery being performed closely dissecting the tissue around the anus. The third photo shows the rectum, anus and anal skin we receive in the lab as a specimen. The anal skin is to the left of the photo. I know this photo is small, but an ulcerated, puckered tumor can be seen close and invading into the anal skin. The bottom photo shows the male genital- anal area after this surgery is healed.

After six long years, Cathy Rose has beaten rectal cancer. She was excited to finally put her thumb print on the GV Health wall, with all other discharged patients. Congrats Cathy! 👍🏼 #rectalcancer #GVhealth #cancer #shepparton #sheppartonnews

Colorectal cancer is rising among the young. While screening colonoscopy is generally recommended at age 50, younger people with blood in their stool, persistent abdominal bloating or change in stool habits should not ignore these symptoms. If you are experiencing these symptoms see your doctor or make an appointment for a consultation with Dr Zaghiyan at 310-289-9224.

Race recap from the 24 Hours of Summer Solstice MTB Race this past weekend. Thanks Darryl! An awesome weekend at the 24hrs of summer solstice MTB Race! A great job done on all laps and a great time had by all. Both Michael Rowland and myself will have to put the Wick Tough jerseys through the wash a couple of times to get 'em clean after epic attempts on the famous 100m to go Chico Mud Bog!! #xx2i #nuunlife #stingorbestung #cancersucks #coloncancer #rectalcancer #colorectalcancerawareness #endcancer #kickcancer #loveyourbutt

Fecal incontinence is the condition where you lose control of your bowels. This is a taboo, shameful topic patients don't share with family, friends or doctors! It occurs commonly years after #childbirth, after #colorectalsurgery or #radiation. What many patients don't know is there is treatment for this- sacral nerve stimulation has over 85% success in the long run. 310-289-9224 for consultation in #losangeles #beverlyhills #westhollywood

Chemotherapy drugs can affect your appetite in so many ways. Some people only experience side-effects briefly or temporarily, others may be affected more seriously and really struggle to enjoy their food.⠀

If you have nausea and vomiting you may find sipping fizzy drinks, such as ginger beer, soda, water or lemonade can help.⠀

See our website for more information on how to manage the side-effects of chemotherapy through diet (link in bio).⠀

Dave has started on his lead liquid prep diet! You need to be careful to stay VERY hydrated! .
Some of our favorite clear liquids are ginger ale, broth, lime popsicles, orange or lime jello, flavored water, white grape juice, and sports drinks. Just remember - NO RED, BLUE, or PURPLE LIQUIDS/PRODUCTS. You don't want to have to repeat your prep! .
Tell us - what are your favorite prep day clear liquids?

#probiotics are good for you #health ... this one in particular has up to 900 billion bacteria per sachet! I recommend taking a probiotic any time you take antibiotics to keep the good bacteria from being wiped out! #colonhealth #colorectalsurgeon #colonoscopy #healthygut #healthylife #colorectalcancer #coloncancerawareness #rectalcancer #healthfood #supplements

Hey - guess what, friends! Dave is getting a colonoscopy tomorrow! He'll be taking over our social media accounts today and tomorrow to talk about his prep! Follow the hashtag #DaveGetsScreened to join in the fun and lend your support!
.
Dave starts his prep later today. His doctor told him he could eat a yogurt early this morning, but remember, YOUR DOCTOR MIGHT KEEP YOU ON CLEAR LIQUIDS ONLY ON PREP DAY. This is definitely a conversation to have with your provider and, whatever they say, follow their directions! After the yogurt, Dave is on clear liquids until after his scope! (We'll talk more about that today!)
.
Thanks for agreeing to share your prep journey, Dave! You kick butt! To follow another prep journey, check out #KatieGetsScreened! .

You may have been hearing a lot lately about fecal tests for colorectal cancer. While the colonoscopy is the "gold standard" for screening, FIT tests can be an excellent option for people of average risk. As we often say, the best test is the one that gets done!
