Hubby gets the catheter out tomrrow. But we also get the pathology report. It's been a hard 7 days since the surgery. He is still not eating much (today he had 2 crackers and maybe 1/4 cup of grits), has only had 1 VERY small bowel movement (fianlly- late today) and his belly is very swollen. He gets occassional leg cramps and back pain. At least the doc let me put seri strips on his incision from the abdomial drain- that stopped the (to me profuse) bleeding. I know he will be glad to have the catheter out. But I dread the path report. I'm sure you all understand. You want to KNOW, and you hope for something good--- but there's always this little voice in the back of your head that says, "It could be bad".
