Well, it is now over a week and my husband is still in the hospital at Moffitt.
He has had serious gas issues due to a hiatal hernia in his stomach. It is affecting his lungs so he is on oxygen.
The first attempt to insert an NG Tube was unsuccessful..the herina was blocking the tube.
Late yesterday, they used a visual NG tube and inserted it into his stomach. It might take 2 days to see if it works.
He has not had any real food in over a week.
We still have not received the path report.
I suspect if the news had been good they would have told him already.
I think they are waiting for his situation to improve to tell him less than positive news about the lymph nodes.
Since 1 lymph node close to his bladder was cancerous, the odds are against him.
I do not see any chemo/immunotherapy treatments for this situation and type of tumor post-op.
Sorry...I know I do not sound positive, but I am a realist.
He is depressed...as could be expected.
The no visitors policy has added to this.
