Colon Cancer Support Group

Colorectal cancer, also called colon cancer or bowel cancer, includes cancerous growths in the colon, rectum and appendix. Many colorectal cancers are thought to arise from mushroom-like growths that are usually benign, but some may develop into cancer over time. The majority of the time, the diagnosis of localized colon cancer is through colonoscopy.

One year later

Hello everyone. I was 38 when they found my tumor in my colon. It was removed and I had a left colectomy it didn't spread anywhere else but I had 6months of chemo in case. My first colonoscopy a year later it came out clear in sep 2017 I have my first scan but for now I am NED. I wanted to know if anyone still has problems with their bowels? I can go 6 times a day to being constipated I don't have my gall bladder either and heard that affects your bowels also. Thank you for the help.

    Hi everyone!  As of yesterday evening, Mary was out of the ICU and in a regular hospital room.  She is sleeping a lot.  Doctors are trying to determine how well her kidneys are functioning.  She is definitely doing better, but still needs our prayers.  Thanks!

    Prayers for Mary

    Mary is currently intubated in the ICU, due to her lungs filling with fluid.  She is currently being kept under sedation and is completely reliant upon a ventilator in order to breathe.  Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers today.  Thanks!
