Dad died of Colon cancer, curious what it was like.?

Postby beals » Fri Apr 01, 2011 7:38 am

My dad died of Colon cancer when I was 6 years old (I think he was probably around 45 years old but I'm not really sure.) I don't really remember anything from that time because I was so young. I'm just curious what the symptoms of Colon cancer are and what chances of survival people have. Sorry I wasn't able to give that much information...I don't really know that much. It would mean a lot to me if anyone was able to give me any information on it.

Hello Katie:

I am sorry your dad died before you got to know him.
You both missed out on a lot of wonderful times.

I survived my colon cancer. There were times where
my lower abdomen hurt. And there were times I passed
blood in my stool. Mine was caught early enough that
I was sure I would make it ok. I was with my step
grandmother when she died of it. I remember her last
minutes I told her I loved her she nodded than she took
a deep breath and let it out and died with a smile on
her face. I know she knew what I said and I know she
loved me too. I was a nurse at the time so I took care
of her till she passed away. She was in pain a lot so
I gave her the medication that the doctors said to give
her. She got to where I had to puree her food to feed
her. And every thing was liquid. I would take a little
taste while making it to be sure it was tasty not yucky.
She got a lot of Love. A lot of good care. This is what
I think every one should have at there last days. The
people who love them taking care of them.
My daughter was 4 years old and she remembered the
love of grandma mame. This is the good memory's that
children should have when there grandparents die.

Again I am sorry for your loss and I hope you never get
colon cancer. or any other types.
