I just wanted to wish you well. I know another woman who had colon cancer & is in remission now (& doing very well!), but she did not have a WLS.
You probably have a lot more answers now, but my general advice as a cancer survivor & WLS person (I worried about my own effects of malabsorption on adequate nutrition & nausea), just take one day at a time b/c otherwise you will drive yourself crazy.
If you havn't heard of it, Gilda's Club is a national organization that I found very helpful - doesn't matter what type of cancer you have. They have support groups, activities, & workshops.
In addition, there's a program called, "Look Good, Feel Better" that your hospital's social worker has likely told you about, but do look into it if you haven't. It's a great class with lots of free make up!! Made me feel good :)
Best of luck,
