    I don't see any interest to find out more about the TEM vs "open" surgeries for a colorectal cancer. It looks like nobody had a TEM surgery?! Pls Write me an email if you had one and want to discuss outcomes. [email redacted]

    My oncologist was pushing for an open surgery, begs,etc but I didn't agree and found a surgeon who performed TEMS .And in general - I'm very happy with the results. Hope that other people had similar experience. If not, just consider TEMS if it not too late for that kind of endoscopic surgery. But some American doctors are saying that these kind of surgeries are being performed in Brasil (!!) but "we are not ready for them" ... ( Sure, open surgeries are much more expensive!) Nevertheless TEMS has been pioneered by Columbia University Hospital specialists over 15 yrs ago!

    How to reduce frequent bowels (mostly in the morning) and what to eat or what medication to take to eliminate mucus (transparent) discharges? So far I'm drinking Metamucil and using Imodium...

      I do the same but I still have frequent bowels ( mostly in the morning) and once a while a mucus discharges with an air ..caused probably by Metamucil. No doctor can tell you how long it will last!! These are results of mostly radiotherapy ( chemo too?) and doctors are not telling you that before the therapy... Something must help but what?
