Hi, I just had colon cancer surgery 3/20/08. It was called a lower anterior resection basically of a rectal sigmoid mass. I had it done laparoscapally(sp?) and it went well. The more standard method has been a bigger incision to open your abdomen and also view surrounding organs. Luckily my doctors could use lap. on mine and they said they viewed the surrounding organs well. Unfortunately I was diagnosed stage 3C rectal cancer and have a tough road ahead. My recovery from surgery has been good and chemo starts soon. Good luck with yours...if you have a really good surgeon you could go lap, but if you are not sure, then go standard.

sincerely,

Jen
