Colon surgery (colectomy or hemicolectomy) - ElizaM

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Adenocarcinoma, Colorectal Cancer. Posted on September 7, 2012 View this journey (6 Experiences)

Although surgery was supposedly a success it has left me with an enormous hernia, about the size of a cantaloupe melon, which is extremely ugly. I dread the thought of having something else implanted, like the mesh the surgeon talks about, after I finish chemo. Another procedure, for which I don't have the money or feel I have the strength, another implanted "something" for my body to have to adjust to, etc. etc. We will see about this one. But yes, basically the surgery went well and they removed my cecum and gall bladder, plus 6 lymph nodes, 5 of which were malignant.
