Re: What the hell happened to my colon? I need answers

Welcome to uncertain world of cancer diagnosis and prognosis! The answers on all your questions are either "yes, but" or "probably". 1) Did the GI who removed 90.% possibly put me at risk and exposed my tubulovillouss polyp to other areas of the colon? Yes, although nobody can te...

Re: How can I help my family watch me die?

What I'm having a REALLY hard time with is how my parents and husband and sister will handle my actual dying part. I know that once I'm gone it will be terribly difficult for them (we're all such a close-knit family), but I won't be around to help them... Is there anything I can do to make this who...

Re: NEW - From New Zealand - Great folk here

Sounds like NZ folks are treated just as well as us Canucks. Moneywise it may be cheaper in Canada/NZ. However from point of view of waiting time and quality of service US is probably better. You can't get something for nothing. My GI doctor told me that average Canadian hospitals are better than a...

Re: Still scared after colonoscopy

My thing is... is there a chance she could have missed something? Yes, there is a chance. It depends on 1) quality of preparation (how clean was your colon during colonoscopy) and 2) whether they were able to push the scope all the way to caecum. Please read your colonoscopy report and understand #...

Re: Lung nodule

In my case they repeated low dose no contrast chest CT scan in 4 months to keep track of progress.
In 4 months size of these nodules decreased a bit and I was told that it was a confirmation that they were due to infection.

Re: Colon rectal cancer found during routine colonoscopy

Thank you, O Stoma Mia , You perfectly described what happened in my case. However I had no input in this process except my concent for "prophylactic" laparoscopic surgery. I just followed the flow. Back there I had no desire neither to Google nor even to read my own reports. I blindly fol...

Re: cecal mass

Could you please post a complete report.
In this case you would get a more specific feedback.

Caecum location is better than rectal, but worse than transverse. ;)

Re: Colon rectal cancer found during routine colonoscopy

Can I not assume that the surgeon will refer me to less invasive treatment if that is in fact what can fix my issue? It’s hard to believe that surgeons don’t work together with GI doctors to decide which least invasive procedure is needed to fix problem Where do you live? Is it US or Canada? A surg...

Re: Colon rectal cancer found during routine colonoscopy

Utwo Do you have any idea how I could locate a highly skilled gastroenterologist or colonoscopist who may be able to do such a surgery for me? My surgeon performed my first colonoscopy and was not confident to remove my sessile polyp. So she referred me to GI guy who specialized in colonoscopy star...
