From now on this blog is back to cinematography!
I saw my surgeon this morning, exactly 14 days since the operation.
He showed me the Path results and they were “interesting”, he removed a section with 22 Polyps, 3 of which were malignant. The bad ones were down to the end of the rectum. The big news was the tumour he removed that was right at the exit of the rectum. 5cms, I’ll say that again 5cms! of malignancy.
Well no wonder cycling hurt if I was sitting on a nasty 5cm block of poison!!
Anyway, It’s all gone, no trace of any indicators in my blood tests, I go back in 3 months for another blood test then after 6 months and staying at 6 month intervals for 5 years.
As far as my surgeon is concerned everything is healing well, the stitches will dissolve over time but I’ve got to back off a bit on the walking, stay at 2 circuits of the gardens a day for a week or so. I can also sit at my computer and work for short periods.
My lovely nurses will continue to visit until they’re happy with my stoma and they will also keep checking the stitches.
I have to do a huge thank you to a lot of people now, the support on FaceBook has been amazing, you really have all helped to keep my spirits up. I’d also like to thank all the nurses on c3 at Langelland Zickenhuis they were absolutely incredible.
I’ll not be at BSC or BVE but I will be at NAB, hope to see a bunch of you there.
