I have a rectal stricture. Last month I went to the hospital and had it dilated in the OR under general anesthesia. This week I saw the doctor and he checked it and found very little improvement. I am scheduled to go back to the OR next month for another attempt.
In the office, he told me the only sure cure is rectum and colon removal and an ostomy. I have been a wreck ever since. I need some hope that the dilation will work. I can't handle the stress and worry at this time.
Any advice or positive thoughts?
