Colon cancer survivor, Efren Valero, now 59 years old, currently 13 years in remission. I operated on him 13 years ago in Manila Doctors Hospital. He was 46 years old then. I cut a segment of his colon that contained the cancer and then did a reconnection. I did NOT have to do a colostomy. Histopathology results: adenocarcinoma, moderately differentiated, with mucinous component, with full thickness involvement of wall, nodes negative. He had no additional treatment after the operation. Just check-up and symptom and sign directed surveillance. We thank God for the remission.
