I talked to 4 surgeons so far. The older ones want to do open surgery to remove my rectum and anus and do pernanent colostomy. They claim there is better visibility. The younger doctors want to do laparoscopic, claiming the same thing and that it's easier to get around with a robotic arm in the narrower male pelvis.
I don't know. I think since they have to resect the anal area from the outside anyway, it really doesn't matter.
What do you think and what was your experience?
