First Post Surgery/Chemo Scope

Postby benben » Wed Mar 14, 2018 6:24 pm

I had my first colonoscopy post ULAR surgery and 12 rounds of chemo yesterday.

Results = ALL clear.
From what I recall they thought my colon looked quite healthy.
There was a little swelling at the anastomosis and one very small spot of diverticulitis, but no sign of cancer nor any polyps.

So that makes one clear CT scan and one clear Scope, post surgery and chemo. Hopefully they just keep on continuing with similar results.

Thanks All, for the help and support though this now 356 day long endeavor.
best wishes.
