I thought I had a hemorrhoid!
Blood in stool, and internal hemorrhoid was causing me some discomfort. I scheduled a colonoscopy to determine the cause of the rectal bleeding and they discovered a large polyp, due to its location they didn't remove it but assured me it was nothing to worry about, a simple procedure with a surgeon...2 weeks later I met with a colorectal surgeon and he decided to remove the tumor as it looked healthy and no real cause for concern (I'm 42 years old and in good health). As soon as it was removed I felt better and my body was bouncing back quickly. Three days later I received the call that it was squamous cell. After the PET CT we discovered 2 lymph nodes that are also impacted and in need of extra radiation. December 2nd will forever be a day that changed me but certainly won't define me.
Severe Rectal bleeding brought me to ICU. Severe vaginal pain and anal pain from radiation, when using bathroom. Tired.
