Re: Right Hemicolectomy expectations

I had a laparoscopic hemicolectomy and have done very well. I had large intestine removed from just above cecum to just above sigmoid. I have more frequent bowel movements and some loose bowels at times but I have very good control. I was in the hospital for 6 days until I passed gas. Then once home...

Re: Pre-Cancerous Polyp, I'm 27

Hi Catherine - Congratulations on braving your first colonoscopy. Sorry to hear a polyp was found. As previously asked, what prompted you to go for a colonoscopy? I am assuming by you saying it was pre-cancerous that it was an adenomatous polyp (pre-cancerous pathology) versus hyperplastic polyp (be...

Hi Michelle - I don't have cancer, so I cannot even being to understand how you are feeling having just gone through what you have endured, but since my surgery last April, it has really hit me that I have this gene that will give me cancer at some point if I am not careful.

Re: Bowel Movements after surgery

Re: Undiagnosed - Can I finally let colon cancer thoughts go?
