I had my surgery on Tuesday - lower anterior resection... an 8 hour surgery - keyhole and I came home on Saturday afternoon. The surgery went well although it was apparently a tricky one thanks to a large low rectal tumour and small pelvis, the surgeon was happy with the outcome.
I was so anxious about the surgery but certainly happy to be moving onto my next step of recovery. I have a clinic appointment in 2 weeks to find out the pathology results and the next step.
