my mom, having never had a colonoscopy, got ill in the spring of 2009. She self diagnosed herself with h-pylori, after loosing 50 pounds i took her to a gastro doctor who gave her , her 1st colonoscopy at age 72. She has either one large mass, malignant, or two seperate mases. they include both ends of the large interstine, the uterius, the right side tube and ovary, (left side was removed 10 years ago, but it was benign). There are indications that the bladder is involved and may have to be removed and rebuilt at a later date. At this point, due to the size of the mass they can not see the small intestine, so we won't know about that until they cut her open. Does anyone have an idea of what the after surgery will be like??????? I am destraught and need help, any help.

Hi Dormaz,

I'm so sorry to hear about your mother and will pray that her surgery goes well. It sounds like her doctors are still unaware of what will need to be fully done as far as the surgery. I'm sure after things are more conclusive, they will be able to prepare you more for her road to recovery. Please keep us posted and my thoughts are with her and your family.
Best Wishes! Amelia
