Doctor called back with the CT scan results, as well as with the pathology report from the colonoscopy.
Good news, no problem they can detect with the esophagus / stomach. Why the narrowing then? Its an allergic reaction to a food that I've developed an allergy to. I've narrowed it down to dairy.
Bad news is my liver has fat deposits on it - so that means I have to get off my ass and get more exercise and eat better. I would like to bitch for a second on this issue though - how exactly am I suppose to successfully loose weight if I can't eat fruits and vegetables? Whatever. I'll find a way. I'll just hang out with my pal Elliptical more.
Other bad news...
The biopsies they took are still precancerous. These cells turn into cancer.
I asked the doctor how they deal with that, if it turns into cancer? His response? Colon removal.
We all know how I feel about that.
I told the doctor that surgery is not an option.
He said he knows that is how I feel, so their new plan is to do a colonoscopy every 6 months instead of every year.
Doesn't that sound fun?
He also said he wants to discuss the pathology report with a few other colleagues further and he'll call me back in 7-10 days. (to tell me what? I didn't ask).
I'm sort of crabby about all this. Not sad, not upset. Just....crabby.
Not going to be a bag lady. Nope.
Not sorry either.
