Hi to all of you,
As many of know that have been keeping up with this site,that I have been having with sever drainage coming through my rectum and my vigina.Well it has taken me on many of journeys,but I finally found a doctor that is willing to help me,and agrees with what I have saying all a long.I have been to at least six doctors who call themselves specialist,but none of them would even take the time to research my problem and try to help me.I go shifted for doctor,and finally ended up all the way in Pittsburgh,PA. That is a two hundred and fifty three mile trip on way.But I am happy to say that this doctor that I found is willing to help me,with the removel of my rectum.I also told him about my bladder problem.He wants me to see a female friend of his,who is a Urologist,in the building next to him.He wants me to see her for some bladder test,to find out if my bladder will need to be removed or by passed,before he does his part of the surgery.If for some reason that my bladder does need to have one of the two surgeries done to it,he wants me to have both surgeries done at one time.
This doctor said that with all of the problems that I was having before my colostomy,that the surgeon should of removed my rectum,knowing that there would be a pretty good chance of some drainage coming back full time,and being uncontrolable just like it was before I had the surgery to start with.
I go to see the Urologist on April 6th.I can not wait,but I know that April will be here before we know it.
I just wish that I could of found this doctor earlier,but as they say "all good things come to those who wait" so now that is what I have to do,but I know in the long run,it will all be worth it when it will be done.
My husband will be with me during the surgery and wait until I get settled it a room after all is said and done,then he will make that long drive home,and come and get when it is time for me to come home.I will in Allaghany Hospital for at least nine days if not longer.My husband and I will be communacating by phone while I am in the hospital.
Once again,it has taken me a long time to get some one who cares,but I have and now I have to wait,but at least I know that my problems will soon be over with,and will feel much better.I know all of you have seen that Detrol commericail on T.V. where the lady is always going to the bathroom,well that is how I feel with my probem.It too,is controlling my life.
Thank you for taking time to read this,and I am greatful for all of you,who have be in touch with me,through this site.
I hope all of you had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.I did.
