I’m 49 , diagnosed jan 2021 . A pet scan revealed a sigmoid cancer whilst I was being diagnosed for another disease called Takayasu . I had had bowel problems mainly constipation and bloating with mucus stools . I’m waiting for a hemi colectomy . A polyp was kind of removed that was 23 cm moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma. I also have a adenoma on the ileocecal Valve that needs to come out . My surgeon has decided to deal with the sigmoid first then revisit the ileocecal valve ( this way means I’d have a left hemi colectomy then a right hemi colectomy rather than a full bowel removal .
