          Hello,It has been over 2 months since I had my reversal and over 7 months since my LAR (removing a portion of the rectum) surgery was done but I still continue to have thin pencil like or even flat ribbon like stools. My CEA and physical exams have been coming out normal. I am really worried and was wondering if someone could offer their opinions on this. Jack

                  thank you very much, they did the chemo/rad for me followed by surgeries but they did not do another round of chemo for me. I guess everybody is different. I am glad that you have been cancer free for almost 3 years.

                      Jan, Thanks for the reply.   When you meet your surgeon, does he do any exam or just question & answer kind of a meeting to see if you have symptons? Have you had any CT scans? Appreciate your help. Jack
