I hope your future path is a long and happy one, and your colon remains a long and curly one.
My Brother just started his brawl. Congratulations! Stay strong!
fuck yeah! wishing you a healthy life! fuck cancer!
I thing my biggest fear is living my life while having cancer without knowing and find only when it's too late.
serious question: just tonight my girlfriend received a call from her mother-- her mother found out she has colon cancer.
any advice? for me as to how to support my girlfriend? for my girlfriend in how to help her mom... or anything really?
Hope you do beat it, man. You probably won't see this. But my father had colon cancer when we first moved across country when I was 11. He found out because he needed to get his blood pressure, cholesterol, etc. medication refilled (he was about 52 at the time). He moved cross country for the job (from New York to Louisiana) and he went to the doctor and they did a full physical with blood tests. The doctor called a day later or so and said that he needed to come back in for more tests. Well after a colonoscopy and more blood tests... He had colon cancer. Just as I started school again (7th grader in a new state, living in a extended stay hotel). Couple weeks later he got the surgery and they took 18 inches out of his fucking colon. 18 inches. Couldn't believe it. But a few days after surgery when the doctors allowed him to walk again he walked as much as possible as often as possible and got back to health faster than the doctors thought. But he was motivated by his family and his new job to keep going keep working towards better health. He's been cancer free for about 10 years now.
I just want you to know that it will get better and although cancer is hell and it takes a toll it will get better. There will be people in this world that love you and hope for the best of you even if they aren't your own family. I hope you get better man I really do. God speed and good luck my friend.
I just had surgery for mine last Tuesday. Now comes chemo. Good luck dude.
