May 13th is operation day. 7am , ugh! After the operation, catheter for 3-5 days if minimal procedure, longer if they find more to get rid of.
Will most likely be coming home same day unless complications and he doesn't forsee any.Not the bleeding like last time, he is taking all precautions the other butcher didn't .
Worst scenario is having cancer bad enough to remove bladder in another operation at a later time. Best is going in , getting rid of it and having treatments to prevent it from recurring. He expects that we have caught it early enough for the last possibility to be the case. So the outlook is pretty good. I will be a bit nervous till I find out for certain though. I think that anyone would be.
So that's it folks. After the operation, 3-5 days for the pathology to come back. But at least the show is on the road!
I try and have been doing pretty well, crptclrwomn. But I admit a few times a day , I get that "oh my , I have cancer" feeling. But I try not to dwell on it . I will have enough time to dwell after the operation and waiting for pathology report.
Right now I am concentrating on having some fun before the procedure
First of all -you will be in my thoughts and prayers Tuesday.. Granpadonut is right Stay Positive...We all know it is hard but I believe it has helped.
Second- HAPPY MOTHER's DAY!!! Enjoy your family and all those grandkids. I hope at least some live close by to give you some hugs tomorrow.
