I have seen two surgeons locally to see what's going on with my skin in prep for reversal. Apparently I have a rectal prolapse so back to Stanford to see my surgeon and get his opinion. Just the barium enema and using the toilet for that made my skin sore, bled so I can't imagination what normal bms would do.
I am scheduled for a PET scan on Friday, probably not necessary but I will feel better with another clean pictures. This is such a shock, insult it is really hard to believe when they say you are cancer free, I want more proof.
Also working with original GI folks on my first colonoscopy. There isn't any prep as I don't have anything down there to clean up with the ileo, one perk. Getting as much taken care of as I can this year, what a year. It was a year ago today I finished radiation.
