Ray has been to the specialist today, he wanted a second opinion as there has been no progress in the past 4 weeks.
And the verdict....he does need to have another op. He sees the surgeon again on March 11th, prior to that he has more scans. They will then decide on a date. It is considered major surgery and he'll be in for 7 - 10 days. They take another part of the bowel and rejoin it to the colon, perhaps a fine backstitch will ensure there wont be any more leaks. The surgeon is confident that he can fix the problem. Maybe there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
