Wow that's quite a surgeon. My surgeon is Dr. Steven Wexner Clevenald Clinic. He is the director of the Colorectal Surgery Dept here in South Florida Weston, Cleveland Clinic brand. He is world renowned. Glad you have a capable surgeon.
You know I am doing good mostly, have the recurrence MRI scheduled for tomorrow to see exactly specifically how close to pelvic wall it is. If its not on it or close at all my current surgeon will remove it, its 2cm x .9 I think. If it is on or too close to wall, then he thinks I should go to MSK, MD Andersen or Cleveland Clinic OHIO, where they have intraoperative radiation for highest chance of cure.
He doesn't do surgery unless he sees it as curative intent, which we will determine tomorrow I really hope it looks good for him to do it. Because my insurance don't cover out of state I think, its an HMO....But once of the best in Florida.
Still dealing with pooping but things have been better the last few days, getting more of a blowout which is what you like, because then your mostly done. I think the Imodium prescription Loperamide is much better then lomotil, but everyone is different.
