My experience from colon cancer and how I overcame it.
"Cancer Survivor" by Raul1

I remember back in the 90's, that I was diagnosed with colon cancer, but thank God that is in the past. Before, my stomach used to hurt so much. I kept complaining to my parents to get me help. It felt like I had knives inside my colon. I couldn't withstand the pain.

We went to lots of doctors to find out what was wrong with me. Once they checked up on me they all told me that I have nothing wrong. They all said that I was healthy. It didn't feel like it at that time. A few months have passed. Finally, we went on a check-up and the doctor found my disease.

They told my mom that I was diagnosed with colon cancer. I was quickly rushed to the hospital for surgery. Hours later the surgery became successful. They took out my colon cancer. The physicians took me to a hospital room, so I could recuperate.

Lots of my families and friends came to visit me. In this time I had no clue of what serious disease I had, or that I could have died. I now understand why they never told me, because I would have freaked out about it. The days have passed when I was practicing in the hospital on how to walk again. It wasn't easy.

Several weeks later, I got out of the hospital and my parents took me back home to recuperate. It wasn't a few weeks after that I became healthy, then I received one year of chemotherapy. I am free from the pain. I am happy. Now I am a cancer survivor.
