Hi everyone. I won't make this a long drawn out message, although God nows it could be lol. I have had 2 abdominal surgeries, one in 1989 for a ruptured tubal pregnancy(removed r ovary and both tubes), and the other just 4 months ago for a tah they removed the other ovary also. Well, what landed me here is the colonoscopy I had done Tuesday. My GI doctor removed a large polyp that turned out to be cancerous. I am scheduled to have surgery Monday for a bowel resection. At this point the seem to think the cancer was confined to the polyp, but they are doing the resection to make sure there are no microscopic cells left behind. I have decided not to wait for a second opinion because i just want it done. I hope this is not a mistake, and I am confident with my Doctor, but one hears so much about teaching hospitals being the best that i hope I am not making a mistake. We live close to USC in Ca. and it has one of the best cancer centers, but I am afraid it would take to long to get in, and then there is all the authorizations ect. My Surgeon and my GI Doctor are married, and she will be assisting him with a surgical colonoscopy so that he knows exactly where the polyp was removed. Please pray for me that all goes well with this surgery. Iwil be in ICU for 2-3 days, but if everything goes as the surgeon thinks it will I probably wont have to have Chemo, just routine colonoscopies every 3 months for awhile. I guess I am just anxious and needed a little encouragement. Thanks for all of your help. and I would appreciate any prayers sent my way. Debi

Hi Debi!! have been through alot! It certainly sounds as though this cancerous polyp was found very early and good to hear your doctor believes he removed all of it so that you probably will not require chemo.

I am sending lots of hugs and prayers to you for your surgery on Monday and wish you the very best. Please let us know how you are doing when you are home and up to posting!!

Big hugs!!

Prayers and Best Wishes

I hope the surgery finds nothing else and that you have a good recovery. It sounds as if they found this right away and you are being well taken care of. and

I live in Manhattan and delivered my children and had my hysterecomy in a teaching hospital. You can request that things be done by your regular doctor who you seem to trust. I made sure of that myself after I had an intern mess up my epidural during one of my deliveries. Best wishes that everything is early and confined!

Hi Akasha,

The Doctor seems to have caught this thing just in time.

I will be praying for you and keeping you in my thoughts for good news and results.
Think positive thoughts only, you'll be fine.
