My husband had his partial custectomy yesterday at Moffitt with Dr. Wade Sexton.
The good news is he removed the entire tumor and had clean margins.
The bad news is that 1 of the lymph nodes close to the bladder was cancerous.
We will be waiting to hear the pathology results for the other lymph nodes that were removed.
Not the news I hoped for, but will wait and see.
I guess my biggest concern is that I have not found any chemo/radiation etc. that is effective with an adenocarcinoma. There was a Phase 2 treatment done at MD Anderson, but results have not be released.
Dr. Sexton had said we will discuss future options, if any, when we get the pathology report.

Thanks. We live in a beautiful rural area so lots of drives, drive-thru food runs, good home cooking by one of our sisters, and socially distanced family visits. With five siblings checking on her and calling every day plus visits, we stay close.

Best wishes... Catherine

Yes, get her out and about while she is feeling good. Even if it is to a park etc...fresh air!
Do you have outdoor restaurants etc? quality time..

You may be surprised how much you will learn to up your pay grade. LOL Thanks for asking about my sister. They have stopped her treatment due to inducing seizures and she is on ‘surveillance’. She’s is feeling good for now and still able to get out and do things, although very limited due to Covid. We’ll take that! As we have all learned, every good day is a blessing.

I will have home health care nurses come and visit him while he has the catheter.
Yes, due to male parts, the catheter positioning is definitely an issue. Above my pay grade. ;-)
We live 1 1/2 hours from Moffitt. 300 miles was a long drive!
How are things going with your sister? She is lucky to have you for support.
