2011-01-20 The new section "Six Years Later" closes out the colon cancer experience. This update includes some corrections and clarifications as well as a couple added "Funny Spots".
In 2004 I had a colon cancer removed. I have recorded some of my experiences in the hope that others who find themselves in the same condition will benefit from comparing their experiences with mine. I found that talking with others and reading about it was helpful both in letting me know what to expect and in comforting me that I was not alone.
This version of the pages has NO actual pictures, only diagrams. The other version has actual pictures that some might consider unsuitable. If you WANT to see the entire content, click here for the complete version.
Pick a topic or an element of the experience from the menu at left. PLEASE let me know any comments or questions you have.
