My dad has just had his small and large intestine removed, as a result of calcification of the vessels. He's never smoked, isn't a diabetic and he is a very fit and active 59 year old. They believe it is the result of radiotherapy he received 35 years ago for testicular cancer. This has all happened very suddenly and he remains in a stable but serious condition in hospital. He will be on TPN for the rest of his life. There are other complications too; he has a drain removing secretions into two different bags. As a family this is all completely unknown to us. What we really want to know is if there's anyone else who has had this kind of surgery for both intestines and the possibilities/opportunities and outlook for the future. Can anyone provide us with any advice or point us in the right direction?
