Re: Removal of Benign Mass in Colon

The other question I have is what happens if there is a perforation of my colon during the procedure? Can they try to fix it during the colonoscopy, or would I need to be sent directly to a hospital? In my case this procedure was done in a major hospital. In a worst case scenario they would have sw...

Carboxo, being mad at your sister is not fair.
She needs your love and compassion.
She is a grown up and can decide what's best for her.

It's the best possible location for a colon cancer, beause it allows to save both ile-secal valve and rectum during surgery.

Just wait for histology report, but for now it looks like you had the best possible outcome (location + tumor size).

ginabeewell , be careful when trying to play your "C" card. I have a perception that employers became smarter in the last few years and playing "C" card, LGBT card, [put whatever name] card became riskier. With a proper documentation on a part of employer such cards are typicall...

Re: How safe is Coffee?

Coffee is not safe.
Coffee is a strong laxative.

P.S. I did not know about this effect prior to my surgery. :(

You can find several slightly different versions of Miralax+Gatorade prep on the Internet.
I do not believe that one is significantly better than the others.

Miralax/Ducolax prep- instructions easily found on Internet. Rather than Gatorade, I drink Smart Water . Apparently peoples' favorite Ducolax+Miralax+Gatorade is getting a "Tasters Choice" award. :) Once I even prepared a spreadsheet to compare tonicity of PegLyte and Miralax+Gatorade. I ...

Re: This SUCKS, and we haven’t even begun to fight

Almost every hospital has a program of psychological support for spouses.
Could you ask them to refer you to such program?
