Quick Review

April 21, 2010 joycepsouth

Mom had been having some problems with her stomach since February and had been to dr. about it. Thought it was an infection in her bowel area. Treated her with antibiotics. She never got to feeling better. Called and went to other doctors. She was then told to schedule an appointment with her gastro dr. We did. It was scheduled for April 20th. He had a cancellation and we went to see him on April 1st. After much discussion with mom and pouring over her records (10+ years worth). He looked at us and said, “We are having a colonscopy tomorrow. My schedule is full and I don’t know how,but we will do one tomorrow.” So he sent us on our way with a prescription and orders for a colonoscopy the following day. On Good Friday, April 2nd, the gastro dr found a mass in her colon. He was confident that it was malignant. We were in the surgeons office the following Monday morning. Scheduled for surgery on Thursday, April 8th.
