La historia de John

I found out early in life I was lactose intolerant by a GI doctor, who performed a colonoscopy in my 20s. Fast-forward to my 40s, I still had minor stomach issues. I am also hydrocephalic, from birth. I have had 14 operations in my lifetime on shunts. I disrupted my shunt when I had a fall at work one day. After a CT scan, they found a mass in my colon.

After yet another colonoscopy; three tumors were discovered (upper, middle, and lower near rectum). It was stage III colorectal cancer, I then underwent 16 operations total. I'm just a 45-year-old man, living a blessed life.
