    Laparascopic colon surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    Going into surgery I thought that my tumor was in the colon. After surgery I was told that the tumor was in the rectum. Surgery was longer, more involved than expected. Five days in the hospital were not enough although I was sent home. After nine weeks I am still not doing well but will start chemo January 11.

    Went as Expected: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Disagree
