Re: Cause of colon cancer discovered

They have a nice theory. However we need more work to prove it.

Anyway, you need to remember that "correlation doesn't mean causation".

Re: Possibly unnecessary open liver surgery

Given the diet he's gradually returning to (yesterday it was chocolate chip muffins, ice cream, fried chicken), I won't be surprised if he has future mets. There is no scientific data linking after-surgery diet and a risk of metastasis. However, considering diminished liver capacity, it probably st...

Re: Train wreck!

On top of that, I have immense guilt for these feelings. Don't feel guilty about your own feeling. Your emotions are natural. They would subside in time. North American obligation to feel happy all the time is a contrived one. Mark Manson book "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck" may hel...

Re: All Lung Nodule Experiences

I have a few small new nodules on the last CT scan.
According to their interpretation they are of inflammation nature.
They recommended a follow up scan in 4 month.

Is this typical in a similar case to get referred to a pulmonologist?
I have not received such referral so far.

Re: Will I ever be able to eat the foods I love again? Post-Colectomy problems

Please Google Internet or search this forum for BRAT diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast). My definition of the BRAT diet: - bananas, peeled and cored apples - rice, buckwheat - potatoes, yams - white bread - fish, chicken, turkey It makes sense to start with BRAT diet and them gradually intr...

Re: Post surgery expected bowel movements

Cecum is not doing anything.
Ileocecal valve is much more important.
Without this valve your digestive system need to relearn how to digest food.
It may take anywhere between few weeks and several years. :(

BTW, what kind of surgery do you expect?

Re: Recovery: hemicolectomy vs ESD

I just heard about ESD, however I assume that it should be similar to other types of endoscopic surgery. In this case you may expect: - one lost day in case of endoscopic surgery - one lost week in case of laparoscopic hemicolectomy (I was back to office in five weeks because of some complications) ...
