Biography

I am 58 years old, married to the most wonderful man in the world. I am a Real Estate Broker, Certified Negotiation Expert, Real Estate Investor, and Notary Signing Agent. I was diagnosed with anal cancer on 12/2/2018 after having blood in poo for probably 2 years. I "assumed" my hemorrhoids were back and I wasn't going to have that surgery again as it was the worst! I finally broke down and went to the doctor When the bleeding got so bad it looked like a murder scene. I met with a nurse practitioner on 11/9/18, described my symptoms and she scheduled me for a colonoscopy without even examining me. Had the Colonoscopy on 12/3/18, at which point I got the initial diagnosis of Rectal Cancer and told by the doctors and nurses that I was going to require surgery, along with chemo & radiation & would be on a poop bag for the rest of my life! I saw the surgeon 4 days later and told me it was Anal Cancer, not Rectal Cancer and I did not need surgery. So, I started radiation on 1/2/2019 and Chemo started 1/4/19. My last Radiation Treatment was 3/1/2019. Now trying to heal and get back to normal.

Blood in poo for a couple of years. Assumed it was hemorrhoids. Didn't want to deal with it as I had surgery for that years ago and spent a week in the hospital. Very painful recovery. When the blood started squirting out before pee or poo... I figured there was a problem.
