    Just thought I would post that my surgery was a success last Thursday at Sloan Kettering. Had a partial resection of my small bowel, only 1 lesion was found. The recovery has been pretty remarkable and while the surgery was not done laproscopically, I have made significant strides each day. Spent 3 nights in the hospital there and am now back home in full recovery mode. I suppose I can say NED again, but with this being my 5th surgery, I'm a bit hesitant to label myself that. Anyway, needless to say, its a huge relief to get it over with and to be back on the mend again.

    Thanks to all the docs and nurses at Sloan.
