Yes. I had surgery on December 30th, 2003. I had a right hemicolectomy and resection of terminal ileum. 18 cm of my ileum and colon was removed along with a golf ball sized tumor (4.5 x 4 x 2 cm) and 49 lymph nodes. Four lymphs nodes tested positive for adenocarcinoma. I did not need a colostomy bag.
