my fiance who is 32 has been diagnosed with stage 3 rectal cancer. he has met with 3 surgeons all of whom have all reccomended that he get a permanent colostomy. this of course is very devastating news for him. i am not sure what to do at this point. he is going through his chemo and radiation and will do the surgery after that. but this is such a hard thing for him to accept.
has anyone faced this themselves and have any words of wisdom.
also can any of you reccomend any top surgeons at major medical centers that might be worth us making a trip,
