I'm not sure if anyone here can help me.  I havent been on the forum that long but you were all so helpful while I had my ileostomy, that I'd wished I found my way here in the very beginning.
 
Does anyone here know of a support site that deals with complications following surgeries....namely the STARR procedure I had done.  I have found out that the resectioned area of the bowel never healed properly and that the staples are exposed causing inflammation, bleeding, proctitis,etc.  There is another procedure the surgeon is going to perform in a couple of weeks in order to help fix what is wrong.  I am just looking for anyone who has had the STARR procedure...or anyone who could suggest another support forum more specifically for this. 
 
I'm so sorry if it wasn't/isn't right to post this here.....I don't mean to waste anyone's time or bandwidth on the forum. Just looking to talk to someone for advice or input. 
 
Thank you for listening

hi Tina,
i had the STARR procedure on 6/5/2008. mine was actually with no complication and really fixed the prolapse and rectocele i had. i'm so sorry to hear about all the complications you've been going through, it's truly very unfortunate. i wish i could help you with suggestions on support groups/forums, but i don't know of any.

sorry i can't be much of a help... but i do wish you the very best and that things resolves for you soon.

best wishes to you!!
