Yes, do you believe I had yet ANOTHER bowel question?? LOL
I saw the radiation/onco today after they took some Xrays....something they said they will do weekly. She told me that the Xrays are showing pieces of bowel where the uterus used to be. She's concerned it's an obstruction so she called the gyne/onco. The G/O said not to worry about it and that first they have to cure the cancer, then she'll handle any obstruction issues.
Now at that moment I thought that this couldn't be...I mean...things are moving right along in there! I figured that hey the uterus was right before the rectum...so since it's not there wouldn't it be normal for bowel to show if it's "on it's way out"?
PLease correct me if I'm wrong!
Now I'm wondering if it's possible to still have BM's if there's an obstruction. To me obstuction means nothing can get passed...but you never know in the medical world! Anyone have experience with this??
Oh and to top it off my lovely G/O is also pushing for the internal rads...even though the R/O isn't sure that's *neccissary* and that 28 external may be alright. (as oppossed to 25 external & 3 internal) Skipping the internal would mean chopping 3 weeks off my treatments! And because of the way I started 28 external would leave the last week as one full week instead of 2 days on the last week.
I'm not sure if I want to love my G/O for being so proactive in my treatments or beat her over her head for extending this so much longer!!
