So I know there are a quite a few people that have been following me for the past few years. As some of you may recall in january of 2009 I had an operation to remove a part of my rectum due to rectal cancer. This was not necessarily a hard time for me emotionally because it was in a very early stage and was able to be taken care of via operation, allowing me to skip chemo and radiation. It was though a hard time physically mainly because the removed a part of my rectum and, well, everybody poops. After a few months things were back to normal for me and then three months later I was back to having sex.
I have been having periodical checkups with my proctologist and my last visit my doctor noticed some "areas of concern" and they took a few very small samples for a biopsy. About a month ago those samples came back pre cancerous which meant that those areas had to go. Two days ago I went in for a little procedure where they basically use an infrared light and burn away the trouble areas.
The procedure went MUCH better than I thought it was going to. I was thinking I was going to have the same pain that I had before. Things are okay for me right now, and I am healing well. I had this procedure done a few days before a three week Atlantis Cruise. It will basically leave me out of commission for most of the cruise, but then again its not all about how much sex I can have and more about relaxing.
