Rectum sore?

07/16/2008

Question:

why was my rectum sore immediately after my throat surgery to remove some soft pallet and uvula? That is the first thing I noticed when I woke up? I asked but no one answered, I was so out of it.

Answer:

No reason that I can think of. Describe your sensation to the surgeon who may be able to fill you in.
