Need for surgery

Thu, March 28, 2019 1:17 AM

Hi all! My brother in law who is 30 years old has been stuck in the hospital for 15 days on chemo treatment. It has been unsuccessful and now his colon is in worse shape. The only option at this point is surgery. He is in denial and the surgery needs to be done. Time is if the essence. At this point I’m asking if anyone in the LA area would be open to talking to him about their on surgery. I am hoping it will be helpful for him as at this moment he does not want it. But, also he is at a high risk of a burst. I appreciate your time and send love and light to all of you.

What is his problem, colon cancer? I had my colon removed for colitis, but am not qualified to comment on colon cancer.
