PLANNED SURGICAL PROCEDURES
Abdominoperineal resection colostomy
To be undertaken by the NHS. Scheduled for before I can no longer self-transfer to the loo. Probably to be conducted as one integrated operation with three surgeons – to minimise anaesthetic and exposure to antibiotic-resistant hospital infection (such as MRSA).
Tracheostomy (with ventilator and cough-assist)
To be undertaken by the NHS. Scheduled before non-invasive ventilation insufficient.
