Mathew had surgery to remove the cancer in the colon. They also removed several lymph nodes to test them for cancerous cells.
They took out his appendix ( thank goodness that the mass was pushing on it and causing the pain) !!!
Some small and large intestine was also taken out and luckily they were able to re-attach the bowel together so NO colostomy bag which Mathew feared having most!!!!!!!!

They were going to just use a probe BUT when they "got in there" they decided to cut him open from above belly button to pubic bone.... OUCH...
He will keep the staples in for approx 2 to 3 weeks....

No walking through metal detectors.... lol
