This is Dr. David
do you have a question?
this is not too much bowels to be removed.
he needs to have a subtotal right colectomy.
colectomy is removal of the colon
but not the whole colon
just 1/2 of it on the right side.
the left side colon will be left in.
I would remove the tumors and the polyps as well.
since there are large polyps would just also remove them if they are in the same area as the colon cancer.
I would do the subtotal colectomy.
there is really no other way to remove these large polyps if they can't be removed by colonoscopy.
usually with a subtotal colectomy, a colostomy or stoma or permanent bag is not needed.
sometimes a temporary colostomy or stool bag is needed to allow the connection of the bowel to heal
does this make sense?
T3 means it has invaded through the bowel wall
do you have any other questions?
Hi u know the ct scan my dad had in nov of abdomen pelvis and chest would that look at the bladder too ? Cuz I know Colin cancer can spread to bladder .
Also from the biopsy via colonoscopy can they tell if it's a fast or slow growing tumor ? I am wondering why they didn't want to repeat scans or do the op sooner ?
In your opinion can colon cancer spread within a few months ? My only worry is in case it has and no onE knows.
Hi . We have a face to face meeting with consultant today . Op
For 26 march as he wants a particular urologithere be there.
He said the urologist seems to think partial or total removal of kidney most likely will be required . But will know more on the day .
The ct scan states T4.
They think tumor encroaching on the kidney . What does this mean ?
I don't know if your hospital will give you images.
you can ask for them.
Hi the ct report I sent you, can u tell
From therehave they have checked the lungs for spread ?
Hi I just wanted to check that if 1/4 of the kidney is removed is that alot ?
double check this to make sure it is C1
