Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My mother has been operated two months before. She was suffering from constipation, and the doctor found a tumor in the CT scan. Some operation called laparotomy was done. After that, she is fine now. The stool is passing through the stoma. After the biopsy report, I have been asked to consult oncologist for further medication if needed. I have attached the biopsy reports. Please advice.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

So she has colonic carcinoma. As you told, she is passing stool through the stoma, that gives me the impression that probably she was not surgically fit at the time of surgery to complete operation in one stage. As per the cancer stage, she needs to undergo cancer chemotherapy, but in this case, probably we first have to do another surgery for closure of her stoma, and after that, if she is medically fit enough to tolerate side effects of chemotherapy, it may be considered.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
