I don't think any of us are qualified to give medical advice. You might want to post this at www. j-pouch.org There is a nurse on that site who knows a great deal about colorectal issues and she might be able to interpret the medical notes for you.
First of all many thanks to you for your kind gesture.
Our physician has only adviced for a total removal of colon with an external bag.I dont know whether we call it a colectomy or colostomy.
Just one more info:my dad is also has diabetes and High B.P since last 15 yrs.Currently he is on high doses of insulin because of prednisolone.
I would also request you Terri if you can give me the information of your doctor's nephew who is in India.
Thanks again Terri for your help and understanding..
That was a great piece of information that you have given.I am exploring the website and looks like I'll definitely get some help from there.
Thanks a lot!
Okay, so they're looking at a colostomy then. How old is your dad if you don't mind me asking - actually, the doctor wanted to know. I gave him the information yesterday, but I'm not sure if he had a chance to look at it. He sees about 60 people a day. Interestingly enough, I found out that the nephew is now back in the U.S. looking for a hospital to do his residency at. I'll be helping him in his search, so I'll mention your dad's case to him. He will be coming back to India in the near future. The doctor's niece is also a doctor in New York, and she's very bright with a lot of connections in the U.S. as well as India.
