Sorry I was afraid I would lose my post.
It my stress test is fine I will be able to stop the baby aspirin, fish oil and although he didn’t mention it, the supplement I take which is a blood thinner 5 days before the colonoscopy.If the stress test results are poor then I can’t go off the blood thinners and everything else becomes more complicated.
So yesterday afternoon I go to see my GP. He thinks that there is a very real possibility that I have colon cancer. I really like my GP. He is an out of the box thinker like I am and he really respects my opinion. He is very concerned about the falling blood cell levels.
He called me at home last night and said that he had missed that my sodium levels are really low. I usually check those levels too because they have been low before, but had failed to notice them. He said to immediately start drinking salted water. I do have more energy this morning. No telling what it is doing to my blood pressure.
Somewhere deep down I find this all fairly humorous. In the past actually 9 yrs we have had 5 bouts of cancer, 2 really awful ones, kidney stones, stents, and I had 5 yrs of chronic fatigue. We just want to celebrate our 50th next year. We have survived well and have beaten everything, but being almost 70 maybe our time is running out.
I had almost no complications from my diabetes until I hit the 50 yr mark 10 yrs ago. Then just the two heart stents. We have indeed been very, very fortunate.
