I’m writing you regarding my father’s condition: on January 15 he underwent an urgent surgery due to the sigmoid colon perforation, with Hartmann surgery. The problem is that the abdominal wound doesn’t heal. The doctors say that it is open, with a sort of “ball”. Therefore it needs a further surgery for the prosthesis.
Moreover, my father is affected by an Adenocarcinoma of the lung treated with radiotherapy and chemotherapy. I don’t know if he can undergo another surgery with the total use of anaesthesia: therefore, I kindly ask you if there is an alternative to surgery to make the wound heal or if it is possible to undergo another surgery under local anaesthesia.
Thank you for your kind attention.
Waiting for your reply.
