I wanted to let you know what the surgeon said. The appt with colorectal doc was very eye opening. She said my colon is closing, and sounded a bit concerned that it will remain open
I am now looking at each case of diarhea as a God send, and have already said many prayers of thanks for the direct intervention.
I am on a strict low residue diet,but have to add ensure each day to make sure I get my nutrients. I guess each time the diarhea hit I was lucky as it lets my intestines empty, that is why the string poops at other times as the opening is closing. Right now I am in the midst of a blockage as my tummy bloats and hurts and I am not pooping but a skinny minature tootsie roll a day. I know probabbly too much information. :-)
She also said that they may have to put stents in my ureters so she well speak with the kidney docs.
No date set yet because she is going to try to coordinate with gyn/onc, but hopefully soon. She said he may be able to get in and remove my rectum and tumors, but because of the location it would not be easy, I would be in hospital about a week if all goes well.
Also I want you to know Wednesday morning I had a peace about the surgery, and then in the afternoon spoke with my gyn/onc which only reinforced the peace, and then to learn what has been going on for awhile made me say many many Thank You Prayers for God continuing to carry me through. Now the waiting game for the appts to be set, to meet with nutritionist and stoma nurse. My next prayer is my Dr is here long enough to get the surgery on his schedule, as a research doc he is gone alot.
That's it ~ Prayers ♥ Hugs Bonnie
