Colon Cancer Survivor Efren Valero – 13 Years

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.
