The Tale of the Garlicky Bean Burger and Probiotics

Recall how I wrote the post, your bowels and your brain?  I purchased prebiotic fiber powder and probiotics in addition to the probiotic in rainbow vitamins for active people over fifty.  I ate the powder in yogurt (not how it is directed) and the next day, developed my belly ache.  I also ate a cold garlicky bean burger that night at work.  Fiber should not normally cause such a colitis reaction.   I endured the belly pain for five days hoping it would resolve itself.  I am 57 now, we older people tend to talk about our health ailments.  Please forgive me if I am boring you with my sick talk!
In the ER a ct scan was ordered and the doctor was not cheerful at all, and said cancer was a possibilty (when the results came in.)  I have a swollen appendix and inflammation in the cecum.   I have no fever nor elevated white count, to my knowledge, yet I was given cipro and flagyl.  The point of taking the probiotics and prebiotics was to fix my flora and all that has come about is the mass destruction of my bowel flora.   I don't desire to die, of course, but I can accept if I have bowel cancer.  The statistics are grim for cancer of the cecum, as it is usually discovered late.  I have a liver without any issues, per the ct.
In the opposite frame of mind was my primary care doctor, who did not seem to think I would even need surgery when I saw him this morning...The er doctor asked that he keep a close watch over me.

I think it is interesting to note that my cell phone in 2012-13 was carried in an over the shoulder bag which would have placed it near my right abdomen.  Perhaps radiation from the phone effected my bowels.

I have appendicitis without rebound tenderness,or fever or nausea and vomiting.  I have an appointment next week and will find out what is the next step in this drama. Do I have cancer or not?  I would not be surprised as I ate a lot of beef over the years living on a dairy farm. Perhaps some think it would be just deserts for such a narcissist as myself.

I have spent a lot of time on the internet trying to figure out what is wrong with me.  I did not get a copy of the ct scan report given to me.  There are at least a half a dozen types of appendix cancers.

On another note, a person from my distant past was going to meet with me and talk about poppet making.   We had planned on meeting and I was even going to give her a painting that her ex husband did that my daughter has.  My reputation must have scared her away, as she ignors my calls.  This experience was quite depressing.  I tried my best to be normal and I got rejected.  I have never threatened anybody.  Nobody has anything to fear from me. I know I have friends waiting on the other side, real spirits who love me.  I have several friends on this side too, so I am not wallowing in self pity or anything.  I realized how much I appreciate my roommate with this cancer scare and all.
