After spending 8 days in community hospital, where we had been told it was either due to adhesion or peritoneal mets, she was transferred to her cancer center and had surgery. It turned out to be an internal hernia into the descending mesocolon, a complication that rarely occurs after low anterior resection. Unfortunately due to the 8 days wait, she had to have 120cm jejunum removed. Hopefully that won't hurt her ability to get nutrition, but I am worried about that. At the community hospital, all they would offer was a palliative care or hospice referral, despite having a ECOG Performance Status of 0-1. It made me so angry. Even if she can't be cured, she has a lot of living to do!
