Hi everyone, need some help.
My sister had a liver resection, it went well, no bag. then the sutures burst, peritonitis, and now a bag. (this was last july)
Healing well, the dr. told her she would reverse it when she was stronger. THEN, she has seizures, diagnosed with brain cancer, cyber knife, and 10 rounds of full brain radiation.
whew! 3 months later, 2 of 5 lesions gone and 3 shrinking.
Now the dr refuses to do reversal. said its too dangerous.
she goes and gets a 2nd opinion. this dr. says the other dr. took too much colon and he will do the reversal BUT, since she only has 12 inches left, she probably wont make stool and may have to wear depends. sorry this is so long.
now here are my questions. isn't 12 inches enough?
she has decided not to do the reversal and is afraid to travel. any special hints for flying. can she swim? go in a hot tub? I am trying to get her to come to Florida for a visit and want to give her enough information to give her some comfort.
thanks for whatever information you can share with me.
