      leepenn,
      Thank you for taking the time to write. I have changed my mind and I will have the bag. I don't want to hang on to life for life sake. I am more interested in quality of life. Give your friend my regards. Be sure to tell him that it is because of him that I will take the bag.

      fastdog,
      Thank you for responding. You gave me a lot of clarity. I have not gone to FB, but I will now. I wish you well. Interesting to meet someone who has gone through what you have. My operation was 14 hours. The great thing was that they took my ,lymph nodes, so I did not need chemo. Did they take yours? I had great problems afterwards and had to get a specially designed lympha-press which I had to stay on for 8 hours a day..

      Keep on Keeping on!

      Teenichy - WOW - blown away by your process here. Any chance you keep a blog? I think sharing your story (even if you withhold your name) could be incredibly beneficial to others... I will tell him.... I sure as heck will tell him. Might make him smile a bit....

    Procedure or Surgery (Ethanol ablation): A few surgeons said that they could not get to the mass. One surgeon did!

    Oh No (Diagnosed): Couldn't believe but didn't know how serious colon cancer was. Angry because I thought they should have been able to find the colon cancer sooner since I was being monitored for liver cancer.
