    Colon surgery (colectomy or hemicolectomy)

    Procedure or Surgery

    My mom my best friend has colon cancer and has had most of her colon removed. I am going through the toughest thing in my life although I know it is nothing compared to what my mom is dealing with. I already have a history of depression and PTSD and I am trying to be her rock but there is nothing as hard as seeing her go through this whole thing and wishing it were me instead.
