faces of blue: dee henschel


My name is Dee. Although I never had colorectal cancer, I was diagnosed with Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP) when I was 22 years old. I had a total colectomy IRA surgery when I was 23 as my colon was carpeted with polyps. I accepted my diagnosis and went with the flow of getting my scopes (Both gastro and sig. scopes) every 6 months. It was just an adjustment I had to make with watching what foods I ate.
