A Big Operation 😢
Hello everyone managed to sit with my brother today for a few hours, I managed to control my emotions (as I think I have no tears left to cry) he was telling me he was awake and saw the colonoscopy, he said I saw the tube go in and than it hit something he said I knew that was trouble. The doctors said quickly pull the tube out all looking concerned. He said when he came round from sedation the doctor told him it’s bowel cancer and where it is located and he will need a BIG operation and a stoma bag 😢 she said not too worry, how can you not? This Wednesday he has a meeting with a team to tell him the stage and when surgery is; I am so so worried as I intially thought a key hole surgery? And I read many don’t need a stoma bag but he’s been told he needs one.
Any similar stories like this, I pray so so so hard it’s just localized and early days. All I keep hearing it’s big, it’s blocking this and that surgery very soon,
He had a scan 1.5 years ago CT nothing turned up and bloods were ok, what baffles me is that in 1.5 years its bowel cancer? Can it grow in 1.5 years? Or was it too small the CT scan didn’t detect it.
I feel this is the calm before the storm. Wednesday is a huge day for the family and again I pray so so hard it’s not terminal 😢 I keep thinking of bowel babe and what happened to her. All your postive stories gives me the strength I need. It was lovely sitting laughing with him but at the back of my head the thoughts were hurting me:
Please please please please let it all be ok 🙏🏼
