Gonna be gone for a while

Post by hornhospital » Wed Jan 03, 2018 6:44 am

I'll be absent from Bigcoupe (and everything else on-line) for a while. Not sure how long. I'm having surgery in a few hours. Bladder cancer. They think they can get it all first try. I'll be back with an update and prognosis when I'm able.

Meanwhile, my wife woke up January 1 with severe breathing problems. A trip to the ER told us she has double pneumonia AND blood clots in her lungs (a bunch of em). She's in the same hospital I'll be in, but they said no to us sharing a room. [-X :wink:

Not exactly how I wanted to start 2018. #-o

Very sorry to hear that Ken. Wishing a swift recovery for you and wifey. My father has also just been diagnosed with bladder cancer. They say it is eminently treatable.

I am amazed. Things went so well they sent me home the same day! And Kathy is doing much better! Off of Oxygen this morning, transitioned to oral anti-clot drugs. May come home tomorrow! Thank you so much for the prayers! The pathology on my surgery will be back next week, and I'll get this wonderful, comfortable (NOT) catheter out. Keep praying, please!

Had the follow up appointment today. I'm going to be getting chemotherapy once a week for 6 weeks, then once a month for 3 months, then take a look and seeif it's gone or still there. That will repeat for 24 months.
The good news is that I'm rid of that catheter! \:D/

She is much better!She came home last friday, and went back for her follow-up today, scheduled the same time as my follow up, but 10 miles apart! :roll: Breathing is back to normal. She even gets around better than she has in a long time (she's had knee replacement in one knee, but the other needs doing now). I think the blood clots had been an ongoing problem for some time, we just didn't realize it. It could have been a far worse outcome...
