I have very limited, due to BT, internet access so just a quick update.
Chris had a colonoscopy on Tuesday. He agreed to fill a vacancy they had. Hmm.
The procedure found a large polyp which, unlike most polyps which are smooth, had an indented and roughened surface. They tried to remove it but it had imbedded itself more than was usual in the bowel wall. I was called in from the car park to a meeting with the consultant in order for the results to be relayed to us. They have taken biopsies and we won't know anything for definite until the results are back. He is to be called in for a CT scan of the pelvis and an MRI scan of the whole body.
They have put him on a two week pathway so those things should all happen within two weeks when he will go to the next two week pathway. The polyp will be removed and it is likely, due to its position, that he will be fitted with a stoma.
All faces were pretty serious during the consultation. No jollying us along with "let's wait and see the results" kind of talk. Nurse said afterwards "thank goodness we had a cancellation" "there was a lot of blood in the sample" yeah right - more like let's get this one in ASAP.
BT have cut us off completely due to a mix up when they thought that we were moving into the bungalow when it does not have a connection. I was out in the garden in the pouring rain the other night, phoning them from the mobile, to be told that 12th August was our reconnection date. I did the same in the sunshine for over an hour yesterday to get it moved to Tuesday. For goodness sake are we in a third world country when we cannot get a phone line just switched on?! No amount of telling them the situation we are in made any difference. "Your mobile sounds fine to me" says he from the comfort of his office chair
Once my brain had cleared I remembered the dongle and have that up high in a window to get a signal.
