I originally had a colon excision with 18" inches of my colon removed. I had a colostomy to allow my colon to heal. I was able to have my colostomy reversed 6-months later!!!! Yippee!!! I credit a lot of my survival to having a wonderful colorectal surgeon, Dr. Lee Raley!!! I am sure there are a lot of wonderful surgeons out there, but having a surgeon who specializes in the colon was a big benefit to me. He is "up" on all the latest colon caner treatments & surgery techniques and I was so lucky to find him.
