Unresolved Colon/Appendix Issues and Spinal Epidural Lipomatosis (SEL)
In 2018 (Nov) I had colonoscopy showing 2 polyps one in my appendix or appendices orifice(not sure.. it was unclear to me) and no follow up by surgeon, so I pursued… he orders another Catscan which showed ‘thickening in cecum … and mass concerning if malignancy… still no follow up… I pursued, so then yet another colonoscopy 12/24/2019… nothing stated of importance to me though after colonoscopy the surgeon stated by my bedside after procedure that I would need appendix removed and resection of colon… my friend was in room hearing this… still nothing came of it.. I got the reports only to find ‘diverticulitis! Never had that diagnosis and even that was inconclusive I believe! Now in 2/2020 he ordered another Catscan only report stated “too much stool in colon to see mass”… I’m still in the dark and the surgeon tells me all my pain, fecal incontinance… etc. is common… “he stated all the people in waiting room has fecal incontinance probably” making light of my situation I told him I must have closure… he’s done nothing! I’ve been dealing with manager of Tx oncology and still not getting cooperation for expedient second opinion.
