    What's the prognosis after a total colectomy? Coping? Weight?

    I had a total gastrectomy & duodectomy 2 years ago, but now I have Diverticulitis & my colon is longer than 3 times the size. Possible colorectal colon??

      I think this would be hard for anyone to answer s to whether or not it could be colon cancer. But if you have any concerns, you might want to consider calling your doctor so you can get answers.
