I posted recently about my going in for an op to remove my lower bowel and repair my bladder. A little while ago it was discovered that I had a bowel infection, it had caused a perforation via a fistula into the bladder. I had been placed on antibiotics to clear the infection prior to surgery, but they caused issues, so I had been taking supplements instead.
Had a pre op appointment with my surgeon this morning, to go over my recent test results. Amazingly! they showed no sign of infection and the fistula, although still there, has healed at both sites. He was more than surprised, as was I, he hadn't seen this happen before.
Anyway! He has cancelled the surgery, Yeah!... He felt that there is no need at this time!! I couldn't believe it, I was so relieved I jumped up, gave him a big hug and two kisses on each cheek...he was a little embarrassed but took it well! lol!
So surgery is off !! And I am more than happy about that :-) One major surgery a year is enough to be going on with.
