    Colon surgery (colectomy or hemicolectomy)

    Procedure or Surgery

    Although I initially recovered well from surgery - 2 months later I still have persistent nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite. About 4 weeks after surgery my surgical site got infected and it is still open but is now healing nicely. Due to the wound situation my chemo has been delayed.

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