I began to have health issues the summer of 2016. I went to the doctor and he decided to do a colonoscopy. I knew something was wrong, but the doctor said he couldn’t find anything. On my way I went thinking this was all in my head.
Over the next six months I would visit the emergency room three times with severe abdominal pain only to be told that there was nothing showing on the scans (it is not uncommon for doctors to believe Appendix Cancer is Crohn’s Disease). After the last visit to the emergency room, the doctor referred me to University of Colorado Health in Denver.
