The doctors were wrong.

Very wrong.

My uncle had his surgery today - the cancer has metastasized. They had to remove his entire small intestine and they were still unable to get it all.

The only course of action is chemo. Very intense chemo. It needs to be started immediately.

I don't understand how they can do a colonoscopy and a CT scan and miss the fact that the cancer had spread and infected the inside and outside of his small intestine. Even doing a barium x ray should show the blockage of the small intestine being more than a tennis ball. A CT scan certainly should have picked it up...

My uncle hasn't been told yet. They are going to wait until tomorrow to break the news.

I'm holding on to hope and praying for him and my aunt.
