Thanks guys :)

Surgical Pathology shows the colon removed no cancer so it was just as I thought, adhesions. The only cancer they found was in the pelvic region area where it has been for a while now. Eating better now. Still have some pain around the ileostomy area but nothing crazy and I don't have to take the pain killers unless I really need it. Going to see my Oncologist on the 22nd to review the pathology. Overall I am very happy that I can eat again, my appetite is coming back.
