Hello everyone. My name is Linda. I am 45 years old and I am awaiting my second colon surgery. I was diagnosed with Stage III colon cancer in 2003 and had a left hemicolectomy and eight months of chemotherapy. I have been cancer free since that time but have had polyps detected and removed every three months since then. Just this month, during my routine colonscopy, my surgeon found three polyps; one in the transverse colon, which he was able to remove, and two adenomatous polyps in the right colon, which he was unable to remove. I am now awaiting a total colon resection on October 5th. I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has had a similar procedure.
You are loved!
