Re: Surgery tomorrow! Need positive vibes

My ct scan did show a mass on my right adrenal gland which they are calling an incidental finding at this time cause it doesn’t seem to be associated with the Cancer, so one worry now shifts to another. Was this the only other CT scan finding? Most likely it's not that bad. Most people have a lot o...

Re: Surgery tomorrow! Need positive vibes

Was it an open or a laparoscopic surgery?
When do they expect a histology report?

Re: Two days prep

As far as I remember Miralax + Gatorade won "Tasters Choice" award on this forum.
At the same time, according to my calculations, it's inferior from physiological/osmosity point of view to classic GoLitely etc. PEG 3350 based preps.

Re: Removal of Benign Mass in Colon

Thanks for your thoughts. I'm now a little more worried. I have my appointment already, I hope and pray he can do this with no complications. Any other suggestions? I was told that statistically speaking a chance of perforation is rather small. In an ideal world we should be able to choose a hospit...

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...

Re: Just need to vent because I’m angry

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).
