Colon cancer survivor, Conrado Rubin, now 81 years old, currently 10 years in remission. I operated on him 10 years ago (2005) in Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center.. He was 71 years old then. I cut a segment of his sigmoid colon that contained the cancer and then did a reconnection. I did NOT have to do a colostomy. Histopathology results: adenocarcinoma. He had no additional treatment after the operation. Just check-up and symptom- and sign-directed surveillance. We thank God for the long remission.
