Hi! We found out in December after a colonoscopy that he had a tumor the size of a strawberry in the middle of his rectum. That explains the bleeding in the stools that he's been having. A biopsy was done and we were told that it was rectal cancer. "NEWS FLASH" what??? Are you kidding me? We were in shock about the news. We recently saw a Colorectal Specialist who is supposedly internationally known and best of the best. Our options was the Total Meserectal Surgery where the whole rectum is removed. Then the colon is reconstructed into a J loop and then will be reattached to the lower rectum once the rectum is healed. We are so lost. We are scared to death. My husband can't eat or sleep since the day we found out. This has been the last couple of rocky weeks in hell. Please someone help shed some light. We would like to know how has gone through this type of surgery. Thank you!
