Some how I messed up and got page 1 on there twice. @Larra
Admin note: fixed it for you
I think that alien thing was the colon twisted on itself, i.e. the volvulus he refers to in the operative note. It would have been very painful, and if it stayed twisted for too long would have lost its blood supply and died, which would be an emergency. So glad it's out now! I hope this is the last of your problems and that you don't need any more spare parts removed. Just that drain.
Yes he said that huge mass was the elongated colon. He said he took all of that out. Glad its almost over
Redundant and very twisted sigmoid colon is what I had. I asked Dr K last Friday and he said that he did take any pictures and Kristina hasn't been able to get the Path report for me yet. All I know is Dr K said it was 49 or 50 CM in length (just under 20 inches) and very twisted. Mine had to be twisting and then untwisting constantly causing partial intermittent blockages. Like Larra said, for me it never completely locked to to where it lost blood supply so I know I was lucky and it sure seems like you got to surgery at just the right time or you could have been in bad shape.
Imagine that. The day before surgery they had not received all the preop stuff do they were trying to cancel the surgery. Since it was being a pain in the arse I was gonna say cancel and reschedule for July that way I can shed a few more pounds. Imagine that in July everything could have been all bad. Thank Goodness we moved forward.
Dang @DSRIGGS we appear to be in a who can do it worse competition. These old earthly vessels
You two STOP IT. This is NOT a competition to see who has the worse issues or who can see Dr. K the most IN the hospital!
I know right. we aren't in competition it just appears that way.
I am done at least I hope. That being said I finally got the pathology report back last night and it turns out that I had a benign ulcer in there as well that I had no idea about. It isn't colitis and I haven't had bloody stools so it has me kind of stumped.
