    Oh No

    Abdominal Pain led to Emergency Room visit. I thought it was my appendix. It wasn't. There was a polyp in my colon. Polyp was removed. Cancerous tumor was in polyp. 10 inches of colon removed. No further cancer in colon, but cancer had somehow gotten into my liver.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Am currently undergoing chemotherapy. I wear a chemo pack three days a week every other week. It works like this. Chemotherapy on Saturday. Chemo Pack inserted in chemoport on Saturday pumps chemotherapy ever 15 minutes until Monday evening. I am given 2 further doses of chemotherapy at that point.

    Easy to Do: Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree

    Side Effects

    My hands get extremely cold. To the point of cramping. Swallowing cold things numb my lips. I have a strange dry feeling in my throat as well. Only with cold things. I get very tired.
