    BBUUTTT... this was jus the first surgery to do a biopsy to see if more need to be taken...It was done laparoscopically, with a small cut into my bellybutton.

    This is the colon resection i alluded to in my previous post. I worried so much if this was really necessary, it was just my appendix right? I decided that because blood and oxygen flow was necessary for the entire ascending colon, otherwise it would die, i finally concede to doing the enitire right ascending colon 12 cm. not happy at all with suddenly gaing 25 lbs and no longer able to wear any of my clothes. Not happy with my constipation or black stool, i have to physically foce things throug, groossss! Dont know what to eat drink and my body is just not happy. and i am more and more depressed.

    Went as Expected: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Recovery: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree

    Celebration

    Cancer is slow groing so no chemo or radiation necessary. Ok, But now that i am writing this in retrospcet i have a large mass in my tongue, the mucle, and nobody can tell me what this is... i actually think chemo/ radiation might have been good to do prophylactically.
