Re: Bidet recommendation?

Yes. Had my LAR surgery (ultra low resection) hand sewn anastomoses 6 weeks ago. Stayed in hospital for 19 days due to complications. Iv infusion at home for two weeks after that. Recovering now at home.

Re: Newly diagnosed stage I may be? Rectal cancer

Surgery scheduled for August 4. Ultra low LAR surgery. Surgeon is saying they will not be able to use staple but will be hand sewing anastomoses. Any one has any insight on this? Is it better or not?
