Post Surgery

Just thought I'd update everyone of my experience. Am currently still in hospital following excision of recto-vaginal endometriosis. I was in theatre for over 8 hours at a specialist centre. They are happy that they have removed it all - a big nodule pulling down my rectum and through my ureter and then another in my vaginal wall. I have a stent fitted in my ureter which will be removed under general anaesthetic in 6 weeks time. They will check then whether my ureter has sealed back together by using a dye. i have to say that the experience of being treated at a specialist centre has been amazing and that its so much more understood and respected.

I am getting there thanks, ended up being re-admitted with a kidney infection so was on antibiotics for 3 weeks. how are you? I went back on Monday and had my stent removed so had another general anaesthetic. But the good news was that my ureter has sealed and therefore I didn't need a stent re-fitted. Even though I was in the urology clinic, the gynae consultant came to see me while I was waiting for my anaesthetic. I really rate him as a consultant/ surgeon, he's seems genuinely concerned and caring towards patients and certainly goes the extra mile! How are things going for you?
