I have sever diverticulitis that requires surgery, I have been hospitalized everal times with it and the section has to come out. So I went in for the colonoscopy so they could look around before hand, I had one five years ago with a few small polyps which was removed and clean.
They found a lot of polyps and one was the size of from your thumb knuckle to the end of your thumb and was cancer, they removed it and I also had a CT scan and they believe they have it all, however, since they are removing a part of the colon anyway, they are going to go ahead up further and also remove the area that had the cancerous polyp.
My grandmother had four girls, each daughter has had one of their daughters die of colon cancer....I'm the only that has thus far survived it. As much as I NEVER thought I would say this. Thank you Great Spirit for my Diverticulitis! I have to go in for consultation....do you think they can do it laposcopically? I also HAVE to get into a healthier die. I have so much to learn.
I have also hear of a lot of botched laposcopically done surgeries......any info willbe greatly appreciated.
