Abdominoperineal Resection Complications
Rectal surgery.: An abdominoperineal resection (apr), is surgical removal of the rectum for cancer that involves the distal third of the rectum or anus.

Laprascopic assisted low anterior resection of rectal cancer surgery scheduled in 4 days. What are the best things that I should do now to prep for it?
What do I expect to feel like waking up from abdominal low anteria resection of rectal cancer surgery? Emergency surgery/no time for surgeon consult.
Can colon resection(~25cm)lead after few days to complications(e.G.Arteriosclerosis) and eventually to total colectomy within 10days?Is that frequent?

If you get dizzy, lose vision, or feel sick when you cough or strain, have an updated MRI just to be safe. ...Read more

Does excision of ilioinguinal nerve during hernia repair surgery cause any complication afterwards, like atrophy of testis or some other complications?
Depends: There are many surgical options to manage rectal cancer. If amenable to a transanal approach, there is no risk, if laparoscopic, you have a smaller risk than an open abdominal procedure. If you require a permanent colostomy, you have the potential for hernias at the abdominal incisions, around the colostomy and at the perineum, bottom where the anus was. A colorectal surgeon can provide options. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
