Doctors Are Not Gods

But you have the power to bring healing upon yourself through stopping what harms you.
I am only posting this because someone decided to bring health into an RV forum and I am highly interested in health and highly cynical about mainstream 'health care' - sick care is more like it.
Best wishes

I was diagnosed with rectal cancer last Jan. 15th during my second one. My first was in 2009, was told I could wait 10 years before another as I was "clean" and had no family history. Glad I didn't wait. The doctors think it may have been caught before metastasizing, so fingers are crossed.
In our travels, we have met many who have faced serious medical issues and overcome huge obstacles. I take comfort now in recalling their achievements.
We were forced, due to financial reasons, to trade in our Ram on a small car, and also to short sale our 2009 Classic, so sadly, we wont be making our usual excursions throughout the mid west and west visiting our kids this year. To all the fellow 'streamers we have met in the past couple of years, enjoy it while you can, and hopefully we will meet up once again down the road.

There is NOTHING God cant fix. Unless we don't ask him. We will pray for you until we get a good report. I am sure that there is someone here that would loan you a rig. If not, when I get mine right, you can use it. Life is short. Pray hard.
I thank God for the hardships that keep us close to him. A little faith goes a long way. Our AS is really a PRAYER STREAM

I am sorry to hear about your diagnosis, but I am glad it was caught. I work as an endoscopy RN full-time at a small hospital in Southwest Missouri. As Maggie stated, many men avoid coming to get the screening for many years after the recommended initial screening at age 50, but we have many women who postpone their procedures as well. I have had patients who were getting their first screening as late at 74 years old. It is unfortunate when we find masses in these patients that come back as cancer. As JackCat stated, he waited 10 years between his initial and 2nd procedure which is the industry standard if your colonoscopy is clean. We usually recommend a return in 1, 3, or 5 years depending on the number of polyps found or if the pathology comes back abnormal.

Prayers for a quick recovery JackCat.

Thanks to all for the prayers. Actually, I only waited 5 years between colonoscopies. I was told by the first doctor that I could wait 10 years, as I had no family history and my first one was fine. Decided on my own to recheck in 5 years, and that was when the cancer was discovered.
