Procedure or Surgery Associated with Carcinoid Tumor, Colorectal Cancer. Posted on December 17, 2013 View this journey (29 Experiences)

I had an endorectal ultrasound on Friday. it went as expected. Some pain which kept me from exercising for two days but it went away. The GI specialist said that the cancer is confined and that surgery would be a good path before chemo. I am praying the oncologist and the surgeons agree. I will have two opinions. One from what my insurance will pay and the other from a specialist at Cedar Sinai.

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