Bladder Cancer/Invasive/High Grade
My dad had his surgery this past Wednesday…They took the bladder, pelvic lymph nodes, and prostate. Everything looked good, but they still have to test it. His surgery was almost 7 hours long! He has been given morphine, and it made him hallucinate and act aggressive! He is now on atavan for anxiety, and a drug called dialadin (sp?) We are happy that we have our dad here on Father’s Day, but he is still in the hospital 5 days after his surgery. I think it will be a long recovery…
Now, September…Dad is adjusting well to his urostomy bag…Oncologist took a CAT scan & bone scan…They see something on his hip…Now he will have a MRI next week, to see what it is…Arthritis or cancer…again! We pray it’s not more cancer. Everything else looked OK, except they did see spots (“non-specific”)…Doctor is recommending preventative chemo…for those…and possibly more if the hip is cancerous.
