  yeah Hi to all;
        For those of you that have been following me and my problems with my rectal and vagina drainage,I just want to let  you know that I have finally one.I had to go from West Virgina to Pittsburgh,PA.which is about a three and half hour drive from where I live,but I don't really mind because he is a good doctor.I went to see him about two weeks ago,and as soon as he read the pack of papers that I gave him with all that I have been through and what is going on with me.He asked me why did I not come to him sooner.I told him that I have been from doctor to doctor,and then some and finally I found a doctor that recommend him to me.He said that with all of the problems that I have been having that,there is no doubt in his mind that my rectum needs to be removed.I am a little scared,but happy that I finally found a doctor to help me.He wants me to go see a Urologist in the same building as he is in,to have my bladder check out.There will be about two or three tests that will done to decide if my bladder will be removed or by passed,with all of the problems that I am having with it as well.After the Urologist finds out what is going on,and what she wants to do,the two doctors will get together and set a surgery date for me.I go to see the Urologist an April 6th.It seems so far away,but I know that it is not really that far away,and will be here soon.I also had a cat-scan done the other week and it seem now,that I have a Hernia next to my stoma,with stools in it,so,I may have to have my stoma move to another place.I am also scared about having that done.Is this something nomas that happens to a lot of people that have a colostomy?My surgeries will be done at the same time,and will probably take place some time in the end of May or some time in June,I hope.If the doctor was just concentrating on the removal of my rectum,it would of been done before the end of January.Every thing will be done at the
the Alagheny Hospital up in Pittsburgh,PA.I am excited to be having it done,but scared in some ways.
       I just want to give some of you an up date on what is going on.I am not a quitter.
       I want to that all of you for reading this and hope to hear from someone,with maybe some answers to my fear.
                                          Thank You
