so i have a date for surgery 25 Aug, removing the rectal stump and turning my loop ileo into an end one. i'm so excited and can't wait to get rid of that trouble maker rectum .
surgeon said they'll give me the epidoral for pain control in the first days post op. never had that before. has anyone here had it? aren't there risks with this, i meen to the spinal cord? i remember hearing stories form women who gave birth saying epidoral is very risky. should i oppose and ask for a different pain controle?
thanks for any input.
