The lowdown on surgery 9/23/2019:
LAR completed of the original 3cm tumor. Did not perform temporary ileostomy.
Splenules resulting from a childhood splenectomy in 1976 had regenerated and were twisting around my small intestines. Resulted in a resection of small intestines.
Appendix was removed.
Left ovary removed.
I have a question. Did anyone have leakage from drain site after having the drain removed? Trying not to over react but it’s a bit concerning.

I continue to have unanticipated challenges with my bladder. I had my catheter removed last Wednesday. Since then, I am voiding but it takes effort to get a stream started and to fully void. The urologist I saw prescribed Flomax. He flippantly stated it was most often given to males with prostate issues, did not specify how it could help my situation...I did not begin taking it but now I am questioning my decision. Did any of you struggle with bladder issues / primarily voiding post surgery? Experience with Flomax? Suggestions?
Thanks for reading and for sharing,
