Polyp removal - MaggieB

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Colorectal (Colon) Cancer. Posted on April 17, 2012 View this journey (6 Experiences)

I had my first colostomy/polyp removal following my initial diagnosis. It went very smoothly and was pain free. Discovered I have FAP (family gene disorder) which enabled me to inform my children the need for immediate checkups. This is very positive because they now have early warning of colon cancer and may avoid getting cancer through early detection.

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