Well usually the recovery from the surgery is helped by walking but if he can't walk I don't know what to do about that. I would think that the neurologist and surgeon should probably talk to each other to come up with the best recovery plan.
Let's see. My husband and his siblings are at Mayo now so I don't know all the details...this I do know...
He was diagnosed late July with a tumor in his bladder, found out that it had penetrated the muscle and he was referred to Mayo and they decided to do the removal surgery. On Tuesday the doctor was confident he removed all the cancer...now it seems his carotid artery (right) is almost completely blocked and caused 2 strokes. I don't know how bad. I think they will eventually put a graft in his neck? UG.
I guess I am wondering how to help and give my husband some advise on how this healing process will go...I don't know. Every case is different...I just feel so bad for the family right now.
Thank you, tho.
OK, so my father in law (65) just had his bladder, prostate, and lymph nodes removed on the 7th. He is now in rochester recovering but had a stroke last night. They did the ileal conduit. Is there any advise on what I can do for my in laws to make life at home easier? Any products I can buy or advise the doctor won't tell us?
