I have not disappeared but only for a time … This summer I went up to the acute hospital for severe abdominal pain. They discovered a tumor of 8 cm in the intestine and that had spread to the liver at three different places. It was so surreal to see the plates and to believe I had cancer! In addition, you knew not in weeks WHAT it was for the type of cancer?? There was a long period of torment, but I decided from the first day that I have to survive whatever …. ‘ve Read so much about the case with terminal cancer where people survived only through to spring diet! When the day came to know my judgment I thought probably I would die of heart attack ….. I was so nervous! Once inside the doctor I was still told that it was lymphoma. A cancer that is treatable with chemotherapy and doctor sounded very hopeful that the day was for me also very good and I was thankful in the midst of all the misery.
Now I’m on my second treatment period with chemotherapy and it feels pretty good. First round made me dying and I was inside the hospital for 9 days and could not eat or drink and was also constipated …. It was terrible because of course I wanted very much to be able to be at home and able to take care of myselfes, and now it seems to go better this time. I am in good spirits and believe that I can handle this. We’re talking a lot about attitude, how to think so. And I try to was positive as much as possible. The tragedy of this story is that I for a year, I went to 3 different doctors who do not ittade anything. The last I was at 2 weeks before I went up emergency … She said that all tests good and did not indicate that I had a dangerous disease, but I was diagnosed with IBS (an intestinal disorder) and she wanted to give me antidepressants plus painkillers. I declined and walked away …. I will notify the doctor … not to be mean, but they are too lax and takes no real responsibility. So it is in the health care centers in Sweden and I will hips if I feel something is wrong I’d rather go to a specialist directly and the Council would like to give to all the Swedes who need a doctor, and feel that something is wrong? We read too often that people are dying because doctors missed cancers.
I will not talk so much about cancer here…this is my page for Foto and art and so it will continue to be, but if you want to follow my journey to recovery you are welcome to my page on facebook … But it is unfortunately in Swedish!
Excuse my English here …it was not so easy to explain this story but I hope you will understand as much it is possible!!! Wish you all an great weekend!!!
