In May, I had a colonoscopy that showed two polyps. Both benign, one removed then and there - the other was surgically removed in July with a Sigmoid resection.
The surgeon told me that I was very lucky since the polyps (tubular villous) usually turn cancerous after growing to 2.5 cms. Mine at removal was 4.5cms. The surgeon told me "Stage 1 - total cure."
I had to be opened up since he also found a tumor on one ovary and a cyst on the other along with endometriosis.
BMs have been normal since day one after surgery, however, my incision split open about 10 days afterwards. It is healing nicely at 5 1/2 weeks.
Here is my question: how long does it take for the bloating, pregnant look to pass? I also feel some pressure on some days, but not always.
In the past few days, my appetite seems to have gotten really out of control as well. Is this normal? Prior to surgery any and all food made me really bloated and uncomfortable.
I realize this board is under cancer - but I did not see a general colon board. Sorry for any newbie mistakes.
