A Florida nurse has surprised people on social networks by telling her story, as she revealed that she never imagined that her continuous belching was actually a warning sign that her body was giving her and After taking several tests, he discovered that he had a potentially fatal cancer.

In 2021, 24-year-old Bailey McBreen began burping up to 10 times a day, which was “not normal” for her. However, for a few months, she ignored what was happening to her, but it all spiraled out of control as she progressed to acid reflux and ‘unbearable’ stomach cramps.

According to the newspaper ‘New York Post’, the young woman lived a very healthy life, as she exercised several times a week and ate quite well. But, when she went to her doctor, she was diagnosed with colon cancer, which was a great shock to her and her family.

A CT scan they performed on him revealed that he had “stage 3 colon cancer” and a tumor obstructing his large intestine.

“It really was an out-of-body experience,” he said. “I never in a million years thought that any vague symptoms I had were actually stage 3 colon cancer,” she said.

colon, but my oncologist told me that it was probably the beginning of my symptoms.” Furthermore, he added: “It was a symptom in my case because my tumor was slowly causing complete intestinal obstruction.”

Because of this, food would get stuck on her tumor, causing reflux and excessive belching. Fortunately, the doctors managed to remove it in an emergency surgery at the end of January of this year. Then the young nurse started chemotherapy which will continue until August.

“The whole trip has been a roller coaster of emotions. My diagnosis has impacted my life in every possible way you can imagine,” she lamented.

Despite everything that has happened to her, McBreen refuses to be “defined” by cancer, which is why she is committed to doing everything she can to combat this disease and so she has changed her eating habits.

“Now all I care about is spending time with family, eating healthy, my faith, and just surrounding myself with my core group of friends.”, said. “Life is too short to be constantly pleasing people and doing things that don’t make you feel satisfied,” she concluded.
