I'm not sure about that procedure but hopefully someone can help you out.  Did you call your doctor to find out if they can answer your question?  Hope you get this resolved soon as it sounds pretty scary.

have a rectal stent for 6 months, while getting radiation & chemo treatments to help shrink the tumor, before his surgery.  It did give him some relief from the pressure, he did still have a bit of discomfort, but not major pain.  Have you talked to your doc/surgeon about this?   

Take care,
