5 MONTHS LATER, JUST HAD MY MRI DONE.....I WAS IN THAT DONUT FOR LIKE 20 MINUTES AND THEN THEY YANKED ME OUT SHOT ME WITH A CONTRASTING AGENT---EITHER BOND OR SMART-- AND TOOK ANOTHER 10 MINUTES IN THE MACHINE....HOPEFULLY I SHOULD GET MY NEGATIVE--AS IN "NEGATIVE, YOU HAVE NO CANCER....DUH"

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
