My father's pelvic exenteration today
My dad had his surgery today a pelvic exenteration 16hour operation . The operation went well as for getting out what they could see but told me undoubtedly theirs microscopic cells still left . Cause unfortunately it was very extensive perforated the pelvis and the surgeon told me it was all over pelvis when they went in there . Honestly I was hoping for better news today numbed feeling today ....But I am grateful they did try their very best and done what they could have . And the surgeon was very honest with me over the phone and I asked him whats a good outcome now ?. He told me a good outcome is 3 to 5 years some people get . So now no more treatment . So we're all now focusing on recovery and to try to get the most time and quality of life . I am worried about the recovery if anyone has had this procedure any advice on the recovery?
