Re: 3b right sided colon cancer questions for Onc

What is this person's over all health? Some times, older people die from other medical issues and not the cancer they may have.

Re: I will always be grateful I found Colon Talk

I agree, beautiful words. I remember Marco and all the other folks you mentioned. I remember getting a couple of post cards for him and then going to the post office.

Re: Blood in stool after resection

Hi and welcome,

I think I would call the surgeon office and explain your concern. Find out how long is the bleeding suppose to last.

Are you suppose to have any follow up appoints with this surgeon? If yes, maybe bring it up then.

Good luck,
