Disease of the Bowels
My mum has suffered with Chron's for 13 years now! Her consultant put her on Asacol.. This pass 5 months, she has been suffering with constipation, its been bad.. Her doctor sent her for a ct scan and she has been for a colnscopy.. Her consultant from the hospital sent a letter out, asking for her to have it redone, a few days later she got a phone call from the receptionist, asking her to come to hospital, her consultant wanted to talk to her and would she bring someone to accompanie her! She went this morning, he told her that part of her bowel is Diseased, she has to go for a major operation on the 13 of march to have part removed and if nessasary a bag put in... When he was talking to her about her Bowel, he said the ones who did the ct scan, said it looks like she has cancer..:( he said it looks like a core of an apple, but he is Not sure if it is, he said it could be the chron's! My mum is a smoker, he told her she has to quit for the Operation, he told her she is at High Risk! Heart attack, and other bad complications could happen... If they seen cancer would they not have bought her into hospital more sooner?? Also what is worrying me is what he said about the high Risks..:( does everybody get told this before having an Operation?? She is a heavy smoker but today she has only smoked 3 I know she will give them up but will need help from doctor with a patch or something.. She has 6 children and 19 grandchildren. Were so close family and love her so much, I'm really breaking my heart, I couldn't live without her, I'm trying to stay positive.. Please Help me with Answers I asked for...
