Colleen explains how she knew the initial diverticulitis diagnosis was incorrect and she actually had a more severe condition, ovarian cancer.

Colleen:
I am really not sure, but I knew when I heard the word "diverticulitis," that wasn’t, that was not the issue I was having. I mean, I knew I was having problems because the tumor that I have inside me was so large that it was causing some problems with my bowel movements and stuff, but I still, you know, in the back of my mind, okay, you know, "I have diverticulitis, maybe I can accept that." But at the same time, I just knew that that was not the diagnosis. I knew that was not what was wrong because I never heard of diverticulitis causing a bloating problem.

So severe, I mean, I looked like I was about, you know, three months pregnant.I mean, I really had bloated a lot.
