good bye colon


I was diagnosed with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) when I was 16 years old and have been living with this knowledge for the past 17 years.

For those of you who are not familiar with FAP it is a rare genetic disorder that left untreated carries with it a near 100 percent life time risk of colon cancer due to polyps in the colon. This risk is eliminated by performing a colectomy. There are other symptoms and risks associated with FAP which you can learn more about here.
