Hi everyone. I went to get approval from my gastroenterologist for the surgery today. Talk about a surprise!!! He said he sees no reason the other Drs want to have a look at my liver during this (hysterectomy surgery) because it is obvious to him that I just have fatty liver and the January CT scan showed no signs of cancer. And he also said there is no reason to have my colon surgeon on board because I didnt have colon cancer I had small intestine cancer. I said ,"well good, then I shouldnt have to be opened up then. If you guys remember from my April 29 post I have teally been having strong gut feelings about not going through with this surgery. My gastro Dr today told me I should ask the Gyn if he has strong suspicions of cancer and if he doesnt, then maybe I should suggest that we just monitor the situation. He also said he is going to try to get the colon cancer diagnosis off of my record! Needless to say I will have questions for my oncologist on the 20th when I go to see him. He always refers to my "colon cancer". Any thoughts from the REAL specialists (you guys) on this matter?
