Good morning, and welcome to HealingWell, bellski. I'm really sorry you're sick, but so glad you found us.
What your lab report means is that some of the cells were suspicious and may have early pre-cancerous changes. Because severe inflammation can also cause cells to look this way, they couldn't determine for sure. I'm assuming your doctor has you on medication to reduce the inflammation. In many cases this will clear things up.
We have several people on this board who have had their colons removed, and hopefully they will come by with words of wisdom for you. They are all very glad they had the surgery because they feel so much better now.
If surgery seems indicated, a second opinion is always appropriate. It's a big surgery, and you do need to be sure, plus you'll want to find a colo-rectal surgeon who has experience with the procedure so you can get the best outcome.
I'll be sending healing thoughts your way.
