Oh No Associated with Colorectal (Colon) Cancer. Posted on January 12, 2012 View this journey (2 Experiences)

It all started one evening when I was at home cooking dinner. I was in the kitchen and I was having intense pain. My fiance came home from work and saw me standing in the kitchen crying my eyes out. I told him I was fine and just needed to take a bath. Well he talked me out of that and we went to the ER. Its a good thing we did, because after a CT scan, it showed that I had a rupture in my colon and was bleeding out into my stomach. Not only that but there was a apple sized tumor attached to it all. I was admitted and immediately put on meds to keep the infection down. After a few days in the hospital and more test, is when they came in and told me I had cancer. I couldn't believe at 31 that it was even possible to have colon cancer. A few days later I was in surgery where they removed part of my colon, part of my bladder, and my left ovary. Sadly my cancer had spread to other areas. I really wished I would have listened to my body over the past year. I was having little pains, bathroom issues etc. Now I am 3 months out of surgery and 5 chemo treatments down. Just waiting to see if this is working, and hoping for the best!!
