Does anybody have any experience with rectal stents. My husband had one inserted in 6/22 and suffering from chronic pain since. The stent is in tact, but due to it being so low in the rectum and invasive tumor growth, it’s been very difficult to manage pain (on a decent amount of oxy) but also causing the need to be either blocked and need to go to the bathroom often. He goes to the bathroom about every hour on avg; sometimes 2-3x in an hour and others times, several hours.
