Re: APR surgery DONE!

... Do you have any tips or advices? I know it's gonna be a long one and I feel bad for him because he is a very active guy (borderline hyper lol) and not being able to move much and do physical stuff is gonna drive him nuts!! Since your husband just had abdominal surgery, I would suggest that he p...

APR surgery DONE!

So my hubby got his APR surgery on the 12 and everything went extremely well. It took the surgeon 3 hours instead of 4 as he is a very healthy and fit guy. My husband opted for a permanent colostomy as his tumor was really really low and he did not want to have a second surgery or issues after his r...

I think it's pretty standard that your mom has to wait a few weeks to get her scans done. Here we are booked i...
