    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    When I got diagnosed it confirmed what my wife and I had felt in our spirits. We knew something was wrong. It was frustrating that it was more advanced than I once knew and I kept wishing I had done something sooner to find it at an earlier stage. Being a man of faith I have resolved to ask people to pray. With having a zeal for the name of the Messiah as Yeshua, it has given me a chance to share that faith as People started to pray for me.

    Colon surgery (colectomy or hemicolectomy)

    Procedure or Surgery

    The doctor and nurses were great in the post surgery ward of Sutter Roseville Hospital. It wa rough on the pain meds but once I was off I recovered quicker and was more coherant. I was in the hiospital a total of four and a half days.

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

    Decision Point

    We started studying what kind of therapies there were out there and what we could do to combine faith, healthy/organic nutrition and traditional medicines. We are currently still studying all of the choices while recovering from surgery.
