I got a call from my aunt today informing me that my Grandmom was in the hospital with a bowel obstruction and at that time nothing else was known. When I got back later today, my mother informed me that the test had shown a large growth which was obstructing the bowel and had appeared in a period of a few months. The test show that there is a mass but nothing else can be seen through the test. It requires immediate surgery and moving her to another hospital isnt an option.
Apparently, the situation is extremely dangerous as she can die from this in multiple ways. (If the growth perforates the intestine it will result in perionitis, if it ruptures without causing a perforation she can die from that, and other problems.) Plus the short time in which this occured is unsettling since the cancer is obviously very aggressive.
They were going to do the surgery immediately to remove the growth but two traumas pushed it back until tomorrow. At this point, its a waiting game to see what the obstruction really is.
Hopefully everything will come out ok.
