I wrote a couple of weeks ago about how my MIL was told that she had a tumor in her colon.
We were to find out about a week after her colonoscopy if her tumor was cancerous or not. When the results came back, they were inconclusive because the doctor apparently did not take enough tissue for them to biopsy correctly.
They went ahead and operated on my MIL and treated the operation as if the tumor was cancerous. When they operated, they said the tumor was the size of a lemon, and they removed the right side of her colon and her lymph nodes.
After the tumor was biopsied, they found that it was cancerous. She is doing fine and is home. She is in pain, but considering her age, she is doing extremely well.
She is the fourth person in the last 12 months in my husband’s family that has had cancer.
