I'll try to make a long story short. Oct 31, 2003 husband was dx with rectal cancer. Dr told us he would have 6 wks chemo and rad, rest time to recoup and then surgery which would result in rectum being removed and permanent colostomy. Dr said 0% chance of not having the above surgery and colostomy.
My husband would like me to ask anyone if they have had this surgery and what he can to about his rectum itching now that it is healing? Any advise would be appreciated.
Also, I feel I must pass this along. My husband and I have always been believers in GOD. But we felt that staying home and saying "I believe" was enough. For us thats not enough anymore. We feel that GOD intends us to worship in his house, live our daily lives as christians, treat others well and testify to our belief. I know some of you might think we started believing this today, but thats not the case. Even when we thought my husband would end up with a colostomy, our lives changed because all we prayed for was life, anyway GOD chose to give it. We trusted that GOD would see us through (in his way), and he has. Prayer is a strong thing and mine will be with all of you.
