I was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer July of 2002. I'm 35 years old. I had a simoid resection and have had problems with it ever since. The radiation caused the colon to shrink up in one area. I have had the stricture dilated 3 times but it just goes back like it was. This makes it extremely difficult to go to the bathroom. I wind up going about 10 times a day. My surgeon keeps telling me it will get better but I'm seriously starting to doubt that. Has anyone else had an experience like this?
