[cancer] My health and yours
I wrote my doctor an email last night. It was about the fact that I’ve had moderately red-tinged stool three times in the past ten days.
Long time readers may recall this is how my cancer journey started, with blood in my stool.
I am not too concerned yet. I can think of several possible causes which are not especially alarming. Nonetheless, I follow up.
And you. If you’re 50 or older, or otherwise at risk, say with a family member who’s experienced colon cancer, go get a colonscopy. They’re annoying and kind of embarrassing and truly no fun. But if you think colonoscopies are annoying, try dying of colon cancer as I am busily doing.
If you love anyone else in this world, do them a favor and get checked. If you love yourself, do yourself a favor and get checked. Hell, do me a favor and get checked. I don’t need company on the cancer ward.
You hear me?
