Thanks for all your support on my posting for my friend. The latest update is that she had the surgery (day surgery) last week to remove the tumor. It turns out that the surgeon was not able to remove it all. He told her that a resection would not have helped so she doesn't need a colostomy. She will have radiation and chemo starting in April and the surgeon tells her that this will most likely (barring anything unexpected) will be a cure for her (for all practical purposes). So the bad news is that she needs continued treatment, the good news is that it stands a very large chance of being a complete success.
