Default Stitch granuloma, post colon cancer surgery. (colon cancer colonoscopy)


On the annual colonoscopy after colon cancer surgery, the GI doc biopsied
something. Now he called and said it's surgical granuloma, normal for post
surgery. There is no more polyps, so clear for 5 years.

It's great news for me. But isn't 5 years seem a little long? I am
thinking 3 years (esp. now that I am good at that colon cleansing thing!).
I have an appointment with my oncologist in 3 weeks. I'll ask her about it.

Default Stitch granuloma, post colon cancer surgery. (colon cancer anemia eye)


Hello Peter,
Glad you finally got an answer. I gather some scarring around a stitch and minor
bleeds?
If the bleeding hasn't stopped, keep an eye out for anemia.
The doctor can run an easy test for that, from time to time.
I'd go for 3 years in your situation, but hey, my opinion doesn't count. It's
yours and your doctor(s)
Take care,

Yes some blood in stool, once in awhile, some attritable to hemorroid.
Originally the GI said something about burning it off. But now he said no problem.

Yes. I am thinking even more frequent than that.

Peter,
I'm unsure what you meant by this. No hemorroids?
If yes, hemorroids, why not get rid of them? So then you'd be able to more
closely monitor for any bleeding ?
If no hemorroids, I'm assuming here that the stitch is tightening or pulling a
ibt (hence the bleeding) and I'd not be in a big hurry to have another
colonoscopy until I was sure that scar tissue had covered any gap.
On the other hand, maybe watch out for signs of infection from leakage around
the stitch?
I don't know, these are things I'd ask the surgeon about.
