I had a low anterior resection following chemo and rediation. I had no colostomy. I have problems with flatus and frequent stools but I am thankful I had the surgery. I only wish that it had been sooner! So far, no signs of the big C returning. I believe surgery is the way to go. For anyone who has doubts, find a surgeon that will do it your way that you trust and will talk to you about the alternatives. Sixteen months after surgery, I am working part time and taking care of grand children and the garden in my spare time.
