i'm planning to have my colon removed some time in the near future. i asked my surgoen wether they perform full laparoscopy or hand assisted and he said that they perform full laparoscopy and that at the end of the surgery they make a cut in the vaginal wall and take the whole colon out from there... YIKES!!
i wanted to know if any of you women who had surgery already had it performed this way? has anyone heard of this method?
i don't know, i kinda freaked out, i'm not sure i want it done this way, cause maybe it's better to have it taken out from a cut in the abd and not to mess up with the vagina and pelvic, esp since my whole pelvic is problematic as it is.
what do you think of it? actually, i don't mind having the bikini line scar, so maybe it's better to avoid messing with my pelvic?
or maybe there's nothing to be affraid of and i should enjoy not having a scar?
i'd really like to hear your opinions on this.
thanks a bunch for any input!!
