Health Update

Posted by: Douglas Wilks on 01/17/2013 - 9:51 PM

I received the results of the tests done Monday. The biopsies showed no signs of cancer. The CT scan showed no problems with the other organs. I will have to go in for surgery and have the large mass removed from the colon and have the colon repaired. Thank you for the thoughts and prayers. I really appreciated it.

No Cancer = Happiness!! Awesome News, and I will keep praying about your upcoming surgery.

Thank you all for the thoughts and support. Sorry I have not updated this in a while, the last week has been very difficult. On 1/24 my dad was flown to another hospital and it was not known if he'd make the flight as he was in serious condition. His intestines ruptured and he had to have emergency surgery. He was in ICU until three days later and then moved into his own room. He will have to go into a nursing home.
I had my second colonoscopy today and the both the large mass and a small polyp was removed by the doctor. He said I wouldn't need surgery today since those were removed. I will hear the results of the pathology on both next week. The last 2 weeks has been very stressful for me and it will continue until things settle down. I may not be in discussions much for a while.
Thank you for the thoughts and support.

Glad you got good news about your health. I'm sorry about your father. Keeping both of you in my thoughts and prayers and sending good vibes.

Watching our parents' health deteriorate is never easy. I'm sorry to read of the news of your father. Hoping that you get some rest so you can completely heal. Take care.
