I know that my wife found this site useful whilst waiting for surgery and I hope you can help again.
She had surgery yesterday which the surgeon is confident removed all the cancer.However Claire did not tolerate the anaesthia well and for safeties sake they decided to do the quicker urostomy procedure rather than the continent diversion.
She was still sleeping last night so had not been told but I know she will be devastated when she is told.I have asked that they dont say anything until I get there this morning.I really dont care what they have done as long as they have got all the cancer and she will always be my beautiful wife and I am just relieved that she came through the operation Ok.Any advice on how to make this seem better for her will be gratefully recieved and also wether at a later date they could go back and make the diversion continent would be useful.
Thankyou once again for your support and help.
