Re: Surgery Tomorrow - 27th New Zealand Time

It was nice to hear from you. I'm sorry to hear that you are having such a tough recovery, however. In case you're interested, here are some nice photos of New Zealand North Island, and New Zealand South Island for your review. Do you recognize any of these places? http://praisephotography.com/phot...

Re: Surgery Tomorrow - 27th New Zealand Time

Thank you for the update. I was in ICU for 3 days (they had a/c there) before they moved me to a regular unairconditioned room. Yes, walking was key and trying to sit on a chair in 1/2 hour increments. About 5 days later I had tons of fecal matter come out down my legs. What a mess. They told me th...

Re: Surgery Tomorrow - 27th New Zealand Time

Thank you for your replies. UPDATE- At day 18 after op bowel was still not working. :( Very painful and I look like I am having twins. X-ray showed swoolen areas and blockages. Pretty sure it is the irradiated intestines playing up. Being fed by IV. Day 19 bowel finally started slowly and with much ...

Re: Surgery Tomorrow - 27th New Zealand Time

Hello, this is Susie, Steve's wife. He wanted me to let you know how the surgery went and how he is feeling now. The surgery was 4 hours and he was in recovery over 3 hours. The doctor did a lot of work on him, he now has a stoma. Visually, the doctor does not think there is any more cancer in any c...

Surgery Tomorrow - 27th New Zealand Time

Although the radiation removed the tumour, due to other factors (swollen tissue, inflamed polyps forming around area and swollen lymph nodes) my surgeon recommended we do not 'wait and see'. In this case the risk is just too high that cancer cells are in surrounding tissue. I do trust they guy and t...

Re: **SEMI Great News - Things Looking Good

SteveNZ -- I think it would probably be a good idea to set up a meeting to discuss the exact nature of your operation with your assigned surgeon. No doubt you would want to make sure that the surgery will be the best type of surgery for your situation. ........................ Thank you for that. W...

It depends on what he finds?
I get to sit down with him on Friday to discuss exactly what is to be done.

Re: Colonoscopy at 25-- Scared

I want to say thank you to everyone who gave me nice and encouraging words. You guys rock! Really made me feel better ...

Re: I saw the weirdest thing today...

Haha.... :lol: I see your point. Although the vehicle use is closer related to bowel cancer, who knows? The driver or some family-friend of the driver probably suffered through that ordeal. Interesting - Only now do I notice every 'cancer society' or cancer related item in the community. They are ev...

Re: **SEMI Great News - Things Looking Good

CHANGE OF PLANS - RATS I spoke too soon.... I just assumed we will follow the wait and see process as there is no sign of cancer in the rectum. Surgeon examined full results and just phoned me. He is concerned that even though the tumour has gone the lymph nodes are still enlarged. He recommends tha...
