Surgery Pathology Report

Doing well after right hemicolectomy on 9/4. Still sore. Met with the surgeon yesterday and received the pathology report. He said stage 2. No lymph nodes and although it went through the walls he cut it out. He also said I have no genetic markers. That was new. I'm not 100% sure what the relevance ...

Re: New Here and Going Under the Knife 9/4

Thank you all for thinking about me. The surgery went well yesterday. I am not in any pain. They have me on Tylenol 1000 and that's it. No BM yet so I'm not sure what I'm going home. Doc say it doesn't look like it spread and no lymph nodes. But we'll wait for pathology. The ONC is waiting as well. ...

Re: Help. Squirt bottle recommendations?

Did anyone mention that perri bottle they give you after birth. It's a post partum washing bottle. It has an upside down nipple.

Re: New Here and Going Under the Knife 9/4

Happy to say I've made some progress and a few decisions. Still having my surgery on 9/4 but I've secured an oncologist at MSK. They assured me I would not be able to have surgery before 10/15 so..... My CT scans show the cancer has not spread. Once I called MSK they ordered copies of all my test, p...

Re: New Here and Going Under the Knife 9/4

Thank BoxHill, my surgeon is board certified and pretty much all he does is colorectal surgery. From the research I've done I don't believe I have another choice meaning. Is another doctor going to say well you have two options...No I believe everyone will say as a first step I need this surgery? It...

Re: Had my surgery...

Happy to hear you had a great surgery and sorry things didn't turn out as you planned. When I thought I might have a bag I started binging youtubers and there's quite a few that are very, young like yourself and they gave me hope that I could do it too. I'm new here and I don't know much but I'm hap...

Re: New Here and Going Under the Knife 9/4

Thanks Jacques, I found the binders, I wasn't expecting them to look like that. Anyway thanks for the info on the slides as well. I'm going to figure out how I can get mine sent to MSK after my surgery.

Re: New Here and Going Under the Knife 9/4

Thank you all. BoxHill thanks (I feel like I got a little hand slap). You were right about freaking out about stuff I won't have to deal with. I wasted days researching a stoma and ileostomy bag to find out that I won't need one. When I went in for the anemia, the hematologist I have is also an onco...

Re: New Here and Going Under the Knife 9/4

Thank you. I just read your post. I had a biopsy and I didn't get a letter. I don't have anything. I could call but that info will just make me search google. I've been collecting questions and I decided I will just look all that up while I'm in the hospital for X number of days. Also, in your post,...

New Here and Going Under the Knife 9/4

Hi all, this is very sudden for me. I know very little since this is all happening so fast. In July, I was scheduled to get my hernia surgery and a week prior I went in for preadmit testing and my blood work can back 6.4 hemoglobin. Well, they put that surgery on hold and sent me to the hematologist...
