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

Round 2 of "Clean up" Chemo in the process... My Oncologist told me he was afraid to see "what" condition I was in based on when I saw him last with the severe edema and ascites. Today, skinny legs again, but I feel great and alive again...just to get kicked down again with the poison...but all is good!

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

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.

Colorectal cancer is often misdiagnosed in people under 50. Blood in your stool isn't normal, narrowing of stool isn't normal, increased bowel movements aren't always normal, etc.. Advocate for yourself! If you have ANY cause for concern, discuss a colonoscopy with your physician. Early detection saves lives❤️

Lying on your stomach in the months following a major abdominal surgery can be intimidating, but it's important to open the front of the body and enjoy the benefits of spinal extension! Our bodies are masterful at protecting injured areas, and when that area is the abdomen it can lead to round shoulders, tight hip flexors, and weakened spinal extensors. Placing a bolster under the thighs is a great place to begin, and when I had my ileostomy, I found this position allowed me to do exercises in prone! •

Round one of chemo done. Only had part treatment today because authorisation is required to administer the other drug and it hasn't been approved by the time I got there this morning. I also had a low grade fever so they debated postponing starting altogether but then decided I was ok to go ahead. The anxiety I felt this morning was out of this world. I'm not normally an anxious person but today got to me.
Today's drug isn't as potent as the one they couldn't give me. The side effects from that one are terrible and I'm not looking forward to it. Also not looking forward to the port being put in in 3wks either!

Here I am following up with Dr. Fong my liver surgeon to determine what is causing the ascites...convinced it's residual effects from the C. Diff as well as my poor diet. I need to up the calories and stick to high protein foods to bring my protein levels up...

The dreaded peripheral neuropathy is a common side effect of chemotherapy that causes numbness and tingling to the hands and feet. While most find it irritating, it may also be dangerous as risk for injury and falls are increased due to lack of sensation. Exercise is a great way to increase blood flow to the peripheral nerves, improving feeling in the extremities! •

4 down! 4 to go! Officially halfway 💙 #chemotherapy #rectalcancer

In 2 weeks I'll be participating in an 8 mile hike up and down 3 14,000 ft mountains here in Colorado to raise money for @fightcrc. So far, my battle with rectal cancer has been successful, but until all my friends out there can say the same, I will keep battling for you all! If you would like to make a donation (all of which goes to Fight Colorectal Cancer), please visit the link in my bio. #cancersucks #rectalcancersucks #rectalcancer #rectalcancerawareness #rectalcancersurvivor #cancersurvivor #colorectalcancerawareness #fightcrc #fightlikeagirl #hike #fundraiser #fundraising

Traveling this summer? Make sure to stay hydrated! Dehydration during travel is one of the most common reasons for constipation and a very common reason for a hemorrhoid flare!
So while it may suck to use the aircraft lavatory or you don't want to bother your co-passenger who's snoozing to scoot out of the way so you can go tinkle... it's probably a heck of a lot better than a swollen and painful bum when you do finally go!
