    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    A healthy female, age 48....with a small, dull ache in my lower abdomen. My daughter Amy- who is P.A. talked with me and said it sounded like a case of diverticultis but would prescribe a couple of antibiotics as we were headed into a long, New Year's weekend. Within a few days the pain had subsided dramatically but she insisted I get it checked out. I was not alarmed but she put a call in to get me seen right away. Thank heavens for my daughter. The doctor ordered a CT scan and long story-short...I had a baseball sized tumor in my colon. And so my story begins..............
