It's been a while since I posted but bit of an update.
Dads in so much discomfort, he has a super pubic catheter in and all the blockages have stopped.however he has constant bleeding from the front which he has to deal with.
Dad just gets very tired and will often sleep for long periods then come to life but he has low energy levels.
PSA is 18 and he is 10 on the gleeson scale
He has diverticulitis and a fistula so he is sitting on one bum cheek and is so uncomfortable. He really is quite weak and very down. Tomorrow he is having a colonoscopy and the plan is to reroute the bowel to a bag which should dry out the fistula. Hope I'm getting this right!!!
He had a visit from the hospice who gave some really practical help to my mum also he is hopefully going to attend twice weekly sessions to get his muscle strength back.
He gets very tearful at the moment which is not like dad I think part of it is hormones I'm not used to seeing my dad like this.
For me it's horrible seeing a once active man asking me to water his garden and do the things he loves doing. Unfortunately he is not strong enough and able.
He just shuffles around bent over all to do with this illness.
I just hope he's able to get stronger and more comfortable if he can have these ops.
The good news is today when I spoke to him on the phone he was being argumentative so I guess there's life in the old dog yet!!!
