I'm hanging in there. Sorry I haven't posted anything - nothing much has happened since they wanted me to heal from the chemo/radiation. I got some appointment dates a few days ago and April is going to be busy.

April 1 is another cat scan. Last scan 3 months ago found "calcium nodules" in my chest/lungs (which put me at a speculated stage 3 cancer) and they want to look at those again to make sure they haven't turned into something else.

April 6 is a Flexible Sigmoidoscopy. (Try to say that 3 times fast! LOL) ...which is sort of like a colonoscopy. They want to see what improvements chemo/radiation have done.

I've got a few pre-op appointments with my primary doctor and surgeon, the last huddle before surgery.

April 20th is the surgery itself. They're going to "install" a temporary ileostomy and remove a large section (well, it seemed large to me) of my large intestine where the cancer was. Once I've healed, they'll "uninstall" the ileostomy and "hook me back up" for regular restroom use. ...that's the plan at least.

They're also going to surgically install a "port" by my collar bone for IV chemo, which will be a 6 month program. It will be nice because any needles for any reason can easily be done through this port rather than new pokes to my arm each time.

I'm not really nervous about the surgery, but I might be a little more anxious closer to the date. I'd be a lot more nervous if I had to do the surgery myself, but I've got the easy part of being unconscious. LOL

I'm not going to put next month on my plate, but today - I feel good. (physically and emotionally/mentally) Please keep praying for me. I certainly will! I'll probably be away from the internet as I might be in the hospital a week or so recovering, unless they let me use the hospital Wifi and I have the wherewithal to make any posts...

Thanks guys.

Unrelated to cancer, but I spent all day yesterday and the night before laying on the floor in my living room with a thrown out back.
There was no catalyst (ie: I did something that immediately hurt my back, then it was hurt) so... I'm not really sure why it started hurting.

I'm chalking it up to the Scoliosis I inherited from my mom and the narrow spinal column I inherited from my dad. Its better today - I can at least MOVE almost like normal and it doesn't destroy me to lay in a bed or sit in a soft chair.

My chiropractor told me the number 1 thing that creates back injury's is stress/anxiety.. it causes us to tense up and when we move or sleep wrong on the muscles it causes us to injure ourselves...I have been working on reducing the stress and it seems to be helping ...

I appreciate the concern guys.

It went just fine.  The worst part about it was a different nurse had to start my IV cause the first took a swing a missed.  I felt really tired afterward and an hour crash made me feel a lot better.

Felt good enough to tackle housecleaning with my wife.

I was a bad patient today. Had a pre-op physical this morning. The girl drawing my blood missed TWICE so without saying a word, I walked out of the room and left.

My wife is annoyed at me over it. As far as I'm concerned, they can just use the results from the labs taken the middle of last month. I'm not getting my blood drawn again.

Now I've got Aspercreme all over my arms because they hurt like hell and I'm still pissed about it. Frickin' jerks.

I'm probably thinking about this too much, but when the nurse practitioner gave me the lab orders, she said I could have them done "anywhere", specifically, "someone who knows my veins and wouldn't use me as a pincushion". That's a pretty far cry from her saying, "Take them to our lab, we'd be happy to help you there", which is where I went.

I'm definitely thinking about this too much.

Had my two doctor appointments today. Surgery should take 5 hours and I should be in the hospital 3-5 days. Got marked for where they're putting the poop sack. My surgeon said I'll have a "big boy dose" of non-narcotic pain meds that I can administer to myself with the press of a button. They are doing the surgery laproscopicly with the robot, so the incisions should be small and the recovery time should be quick.

I'm alive. Surgery was a success. They needed 1mm of cancer free tissue to hook me back up, I had 2cm. Just came back from a walk. Pain is about 8 out of 10.

Looks like I might get to take a shower, eat food (haven't eaten since Monday) and transition to pain pills rather than injections. Slowly moving along.
If things go super awesome I'll go home tomorrow. If not, Monday.
Still have my catheter and drain. Still combating pain...

I smurfin\' hate this. I can't sleep because I'm the one that has to press my dope button, so if I miss a dose in a 10 minute increment, I'm in excruciating pain. The gas they used to inflate me so they could see during the operation hurts way worse than the incisions.

So anyway, I was breathing shallow earlier today - brought on by anxiety for the most part - and thought that if I said something about it, they would give me more oxygen or something.
NOPE. Instead, like 10 people (including my wife) freak out thinking that I've got a blood clot in my lungs, take out IV's, put in new ones (a painful ultrasound guided one), xrays, blood tests, CAT scan and get moved to a semi-critical room where I'm hooked up to like 10 machines beeping constantly.

Second horrible patient experience today.

They took away my dilaudid and didn't pay close enough attention when the morphine wasn't cutting it. I spent several hours bawling like a little baby (because the pain was so intense) in front of my wife and mom who tried everything to help.

My wife my mom let my nurses have it because they let me be in pain, and I let them have it once the Norcos took the pain down enough to where I could actually speak.

They took my catheter out and now I can't pee. The nurses won't re catheter me because even after 6 hours they can't see my bladder in a scan from the swelling. I've got a few hours before kidney failure or a burst bladder so...
I guess I'm screwed.

Not feeling too bad. I'm home. Had a little bit of a fever this afternoon, but that went away. Using some little 3lb weights to help with the referred pain in my arms. I move pretty slow, but I can take stairs and get into bed by myself. I can also empty my JP drain, foley and ileostomy by myself.
It's going to take some time and a lot of pain pills, but I'm sure I'll feel good enough in a few weeks to get off my meds.

Glad to hear you're home.  Hopefully you'll be able to rest and recover better there.  Hospitals are necessary sometimes, but the sooner you can (safely) get out, the better.  Will continue praying for your recovery.

I feel like every day the pain gets less and less.  When I first got home, I was only able to sit on the edge of chairs and for a short duration - now, I can sit in any chair regularly, for a while and be fine.

When they did my surgery, they did a Foley catheter.  This is a tube inserted through my penis into my bladder that collects urine in a bag.  (con - its sensative, pro - makes "peeing" unnecessary.  After 3 days in the hospital, they took it out in hopes that I could pee normally, but I was too swollen from the surgery, so they had to put another catheter back in.

I'm still wearing that even to this day.  This catheter is supposed to come out before my doctors appointment tomorrow.  

Please pray that the swelling has gone down enough that I can urinate on my own.

Obviously, not being able to pee at all is not something that can happen - and if no one has ever had a tube shoved down their penis into their bladder, its pretty horrible each time they have to put one in.  (its still fairly horrible getting it taken out)  I really don't want to have to have a 3rd one put in because I still can't urinate on my own...

Today has been hell.
I couldn't pee so urology had to put in another Foley catheter. They took out my top staples and now the hematoma is pushing through, splitting the wound. This could mean anywhere from more bandage changes to another surgery TODAY.

My surgeon was able to suck out 200ml of the hematoma (blood clot) that he could see and packed the wound. It fits an entire whole roll of Gause in it, so it's a huge wound. The muscle is still intact so it looks worse than it is and will need packed twice a day. I don't need a surgery today to fix anything.

Re: Please pray for me...

I haven't posted in a few days. This relentless pain is breaking me spiritually.
I no longer pray for relief and instead pray for Jesus to just take me home because I can't take this anymore.
I've also vocalized to my brother and my wife that I want to kill myself.

I don't think typing "hematoma" adequately describes the pain I'm in. This pic will probably help those speculating my pain.
Warning, its graphic. You can probably gauge from my belly button how large this is.

Spoiler:

Even worse, over the weekend, my ostomy leaked twice a day into this wound. My skin around the ostomy has broken down and the bags no longer stick, and having literal s.hit leak into the wound f.ucking hurts. Had a temperature of almost 103° today, no f.ucking surprise.

I've gotten annoyed with people praying for me, because its not f.ucking working. Why can I pray and albums just happen, but NOTHING happens when I pray for pain? Actually, the pain has actually gotten worse. I don't give a s.hit about anything when I hurt this much.

Its a good thing I don't own a gun.

Man, that is absolutely wrenching to hear.  I don't understand why, with those complications, esp the ostomy port issue, you aren't under 24/7 hospital care till that's resolved......that's a potent recipe for sepsis issues.....

Wow, I cannot even begin to try to imagine what you are going through.  That sounds absolutely excruciating.  I will continue to pray because that's all I know how to do in a situation such as this.  Hang in there my friend.  Your life is precious and you are loved by many.  Your presence here on this earth is still needed - especially by your wife.  This will eventually pass - and hopefully very, VERY soon.

Just got home after being admitted to the hospital on Monday. I was pretty dehydrated and had an infection. I got pumped full of fluids and antibiotics and this is the best I've felt since surgery. Still in a decent amount of pain, but pain from a surgical wound is way more manageable than from an infection.

I know that last post was hard to follow, and sorry if I scared or offended anyone. I appreciate the PMs from those offering their condolences. My faith in God or the power of prayer will never waver, but when prayer doesn't work the way I think it should, I get beyond pissed. Obviously that's one of my flaws.

Very thankful to hear that you're doing better.  That is some seriously scary, horrible stuff you've been through.

I wouldn't be too hard on yourself for that.  In a situation like yours or in the face of some other great personal pain or loss, it can be heartbreaking when God doesn't act in the way we want him too.  Even some of great figures of Bible had moments like that.

I just pray and hope that you'll continue to get better.
