It's obviously a possibility, I simply meant to imply that at no time was it ever reported that the perforation was in fact in his colon.
Also, Brock's 'minor' operation does not really seem to fall in line with the four hour surgery removing a foot of his colon that IlliniPhil was describing in his experience above.
