  1. Yesterday
  2. They will monitor things; you will be fine now. You are lucky to be where you are, so start thinking about positive things.
  3. doc said I was dehydrated.
  4. I would like to thank each and every one of you. Just a small update, my crp is down to 20. All other bloodwork parameters are excellent. Doc is super happy and so am I. I just need to get over the scare......
  5. The intestines are different than the colon. Digestive issue? I have lactose intolerance, so I know about the intestine pain that moves around. Constipation can do it too.
  6. well the intestines more generally I guess. Can't help being scared though. You seem confident that what I'm describing is different though.
  7. If it's gas or a constipation blockage, it would be localized. Water might help with that to start with. That would NOT be CC for sure - that's a whole different scenario that's further down anyway.
  8. Just seems weird that it would be more prominent on one side. He said it could be a stomach bug but wasn't prescribed anything.
  9. Last week
  10. The digestive tract goes back and forth. It probably is gas or constipation.
  11. I still feel a certain discomfort in the bottom right part of my abdomen, hard to say what it is exactly. Feels a bit like gas but not exactly. I don't think that should only effect one side. My doctor said my colon had lots of activity when he felt it but still scared of the big CC.
  12. Oily residue is common. I get it on occasion. Means nothing. Like Ironman said, when you get a cancer dx they do scans to assure no spread occurred. Plus as long as the margins they took are clear, and I believe they get the path report on that while you’re still under, then spread is not possible. It OK to be sad and scared. BUT and I mean this with peace and love, the pity party will need to come to an end. Sounds like early stage, good cure numbers. Just do what the docs say, of course keep your follow ups, eat well, stay hydrated, take any meds they Rx.
  13. @Ryn079 - they checked for that, you are fine in the C department. As for the stool, that's something else - likely exacerbated by your stress.
  14. All cancer was removed including adjacent fat and lymph nodes. It looks like no spreading had occured, except for some leakage in the adjacent fat tissue, which was removed. I am currently freaking out about pancreatic C, as sometimes I get a slight oily residue after passing stools. I really can't take it anymore.

    Back pain

    The other day I was in my office and I dropped something on the floor. I bent over and I got this sudden sharp pain on my right side. It lasted for a few seconds and went away. I did nothing really unusual but it happened anyway. Who knows why it happened but it sure woke me up.
  16. Are you sure it's just a muscle strain?
  17. So yesterday I was walking around then all the sudden my back started hurting bad right side middle area don't remember doing anything that could have caused it so started googling and says kidney infection or disease so now I'm freaking out but my urine is normal sometimes yellow sometimes clear but the pain gets worse when I twist or strangely look down or up any ideas
  18. It's a skill you have to keep working at. There will be times when stress and things might leave you vulnerable to panic/anxiety flareups.
  19. It's happened to me before. So I'm trying to be calm.
  20. It takes time for Pepto Bismol to go through - at least a day to even start seeing dark poo. If you have not had a lot of bowel movements, you would still be seeing dark poo under your body clears it out. It's not a permanent condition by any means.
  21. I've had darker stool. I took peptp recently and now I'm shaking and racking my brain trying to remember when exactly it was. How many days ago.

    Kidney

    You will need to focus on what doctors tell you so you aren't worrying every time something comes up. If there is an ongoing issue, then you would tell your doctor so they are able to keep track and step in if something needs to be done. But - the goal is to sort out when to contact him and when to rely on your own self-talk to remember what the doctors tell you.

    I have had and have real health issues and I sometimes have trouble dealing with them too.

    Kidney

    It's hard to do, but you have to keep reminding yourself that you will be okay.
