A friend of mine had 6 feet of bowel removed and his colon as well. He said that the procedure is called a l They simply sewed his colon shut. He is now wanting to know how he can be checked periodically for cancer of the intestines and what does he need to be aware of to watch out for. His doctor's do not know. Could you please either let me know where I can find out this information or tell me so that I can reassure him. He is unable to use a computer so I said that I would assist. Thank you very much!
