Hey folks- it's March- that means it's time to think about your butt! It's Colono-Rectal Cancer awareness month! Wearing one of my favorite shirts in this pic! If you have a history (I didn't ) in your family, find out more about the treatment you should be getting. Love these organization: @colonclub @coloncanceralliance #fuckcancer #coloncancer #rectalcancer #paintbond #nathanbond βœ…UR :

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

After my blood draw this morning I realized the gauze pad wasn't placed right and I got some blood on my shirt. Blood draw today was to check my 6 month CEA levels. I don't go in to see my Oncologist until October 13, so it'll be a slightly nerve wracking next 2.5 weeks. In the meantime, I go in for a CT scan next week to also check and make sure there isn't any cancer trying to sprout up. #rectalcancer #rectalcancersucks #rectalcancerawareness #colorectalcancer #colorectalcancerawareness #cancersurvivor

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.

This is so true! πŸ’— When life doesn't go the way we planned or trials come our way, how we handle ourselves & our attitude is our choice. We can choose to be sad, mad and miserable or we can choose to be happy despite our circumstances. And choosing to stay positive & to be happy can be hard, but it's so worth it! For ourselves & for those around us. Choose to be happy! Spread joy! πŸ˜πŸŒˆβ˜€οΈ

Hey you! You did NOT cause your cancer! Wrote a few thoughts on the blog. ✍🏻 Link in profile πŸ’™

Another day, another doctor. Today was a check up with my radiation oncologist. I'm still having some pesky side effects from radiation (that I finished over a year ago 😩) but really things are looking good. And luckily the appointment didn't take too long because my girls had a random day off of school today πŸŽ‰

As a former project management professional I wasn't too impressed with my surgeons cancer treatment plan so I treated our last session like a handoff meeting and had him draw me a picture and a timeline πŸ™„ We'll get there.

BACKGROUND: There has been growing attention in recent months on the rise of colorectal cancer in young adults. A study published in JAMA last month found that the mortality rates associated with colorectal cancer in young adults are also increasing, and the findings have been permeating throughout the media. Accompanying this interest in colorectal cancer are considerations about how diet may impact the risk of developing the disease, with popular articles focusing on the potential of probiotics and whole grains.

OPPORTUNITY: Colon & rectal experts have an opportunity to help patients navigate the abundance of new content on colorectal cancer. These physicians can also bolster patients' understanding of relevant research by filling in gaps in the media coverage. For instance, major outlets like the New York Times failed to explain that the higher incidence of colorectal cancer currently observed in young adults is confined to white men and women. Physicians who provide these additional details and comment on their implications for different patient populations will enhance their patients' satisfaction and their trust in them.

Had a follow-up with my chemo oncologist today. Everything is still looking good πŸ™πŸ»
He's pretty much my favorite doctor because he doesn't ever want to scope me where the sun don't shine β˜€οΈ
And he's pretty cool, he plays the drums in a 90's rock cover band too 😎
