    Surgery not necessary of delayed

    Procedure or Surgery

    Yesterday I heard my friend probably will not have to be operated as was expected before. The reason is the surgeon now has not been able to find cancer. However, my friend will be tested in six weeks. Possibly he will still have to be operated on the (big) intestines.

    Went as Expected: Disagree
    Minimal Recovery: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Not Specified
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Agree

    Breakthrough

    Celebration

    It seems my friend does not have anal cancer and that the heavy anal operation is not needed. However, he could still have intestine cancer, which will become clear in six weeks from now.
