My dad is now in the hospital awaiting results of several biopsies. He had a suprapubic catheter placed last year. He now had renal failure and has nephrostomy tubes in place. He also had a colostomy surgery to do the biopsies and clean up the fistula that occurred near his prostate.
His history is that he had brachiotherapy (radiation seeds) implanted approximately 18 years ago. The cancer was eradicated, but apparently he is suffering from a lot of necrotic tissue---which makes bleeding seem normal. Now we are faced with awaiting results.
He is currently in the hospital, but discharge is likely tomorrow. He has a painful mass around his prostate area that was not detected on a recent colonoscopy.
I would love to know if anyone has insight. He has 3 catheters now and a colostomy. The pain is taking his lifestyle away. He loves to travel and play tennis.
Thank you in advance for anything that you might share that you may connect to. I am faced with what to ask the doctors so we can get his life back on track.
