I was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2008. Went in for a resection that opened up and I became septic. After a trip for emergency surgery I was given a colostomy. I have had several hernia surgeries and am managing a hernia at this time. I have learned what I can eat and what I probably shouldn’t eat, but still have many questions.
