Procedure or Surgery Associated with Colorectal (Colon) Cancer. Posted on November 24, 2014 View this journey (6 Experiences)

Had my colon resection (and gall bladder removal) and 28 lymph nodes removed. Diagnosed with Stage 3A colon cancer. Was in the hospital for 11 days for recovery - very painful and very scary. Long recovery time - had a hard time eating and spent a lot of time in the bathroom with wicked diarrhea. Lost a total of 40 pounds. Doing much better now.

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