Procedure or Surgery Associated with Adenocarcinoma, Colorectal Cancer. Posted on October 6, 2019 View this journey (7 Experiences)

First had a colostomy as my tumour was blocking my intestines.
Then had a port inserted. Then chemo & radiation to try and shrink tumour before surgery.
Had my 'big' surgery which involved removal of tumour & 1/3 of my colon, creating a J-pouch, a radical hysterectomy e.a., reversing colostomy and creating a ileostomy.
Reversal of ileostomy in 2018.
