My Dad recently had surgery to remove his prostate after being diagnosed with T2C cancer. Just before he went into surgery, after going through the MrI scans again they thought it could be T3a but couldn’t be sure until after they had sent samples off for testing.
3 weeks after surgery my dad gets a call to say it was T2c and the prostate cancer was contained and removed, but they found cancer cells on his bladder neck that they couldn’t remove, so he may need radiotherapy to get rid of this.
I think at this stage my dad was quite shocked so didn’t ask any further questions. We’re trying to get through to the consultants again so they can elaborate on this but no luck so far.
I was wondering whether anyone else has been through the same thing? We’re unsure whether this means they’ve found another cancer (maybe bladder cancer?) or whether despite them saying it was contained whether it did break through?
It’s such a set back as my dad was doing so well recovering after surgery and just started getting his confidence back but now we’re concerned about the next steps and what this means.
Any advice is appreciated!
