Female and 54, fit, slim and healthy grandma, with no family history, no smoking, yet have been dianosed with Polyposis syndrome and am now scheduled for a right hemi-colectomy in 5 weeks.
This means I grow the nasty kind of polyps and lots of them rather quickly. It also means thateven if I do not have cancer now, I may/will have at some point in the near future. I am fortunate that it has been found and they can keep a close eye on me from here on out.
What is weird is that the Drs are treating like I have cancer anyway. Sigh.
My partner works aways a great deal so I only have him for a limited time during and after the surgery. SInce I have never been through something like this I have no idea how to prepare or what to really expect.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
