Oh no, Richard did you take any aspirin. I had surgery on my arm in January and my arm was doing great while healing. One day, I had a lapse of judgement and took 2 aspirins to see if it would work better than Tylenol. My lower arm and hand looked like this because aspirin thins your blood. Never again, at least when blood is involved. I hope it clears up and you don't have complications.


My husband had a pic line put in and this didn't happen. Sorry you have to put up with more $h!t.

1st MRI NOV. 5 2018--NO SIGN OF TUMER/GROWTH....2ND MRI--NO SIGN OF TUMER/GROWTH

a week after having completed my PSA and urine tests(5/22/18), i noticed blood in the toilet and completed the F.I.T--fecal immunochemical test.... I forgot to mail it in and drove to the VA and had them give me another one, did it and that afternoon i returned it...two days later i received a call to schedule a colonoscopy for June 04, 2018. results came back positive for a ployp that was excised and also a 4-5cm malignant growth on the dentate line of the anus--right smack in/around my spinchter muscle. T3N0M0...prognosis seems to be really good as it has not traveled nor gone into nodes. scheduled to start chemo/radiation with 5-FU and mitomyacin first 4 days and last 4 days using a PICC line.

AM NOT USING THE 5-FU....INSTEAD ITS CAPECITABINE 500MG
