I'm having to have my rectum and muscle/tissue around it that radiation ruined removed and the hole left being closed up by pulling the skin and muscle strip from my right rib cage through my body and out the hole, flip it and sew it in place closing up the hole forever.
Has anyone else here had this surgery? How was recovery?
I'm totally terrified but the pain I live with now is becoming too much to bear anymore. I was diagnosed with a rare cancer that had no how to treat ideas 4/19 ', so the Dr.s went with the anal and rectal treatments. No cancer on last MRI last month but now I have been left with a growing wound around the anus they tell me may never heal. I've been dealing with this growing sore for months and had my ostomy this past 3/17 (happy St Patty's day to me!!)
So any comments welcome!
