I just wanted to find out if it was possible he had cancer in 2016, I do know what happened as it is my dear husband. He only attended the hospital the once for haematuria not prostate problems, amongst all the other tests that day were blood test but he did not know what they were for. The results would not have been available that day, he was never called back or offered any follow up. We have access to his GP’s notes and at no point was the result sent to the GP. Not really relevant, but his prostate was’nt ‘very large’, as a matter of fact only 6 weeks ago while undergoing the current investigations a doctor wrote in a letter to the GP that it ‘felt benign‘, so I think DRE isn’t always a good indication.
Anyway we were at the hospital yesterday and a doctor told us that something had gone wrong, that he didn’t want to get any colleagues in trouble, but that we should report it to the Patient Expereince Team to prevent such things happening again.
We now need to put what could have been behind us and move on, focusing on the future.
For this reason I am going to stop following this conversation now as I realise there is no definitive answer but again thanks to all who have offered support and I wish you all well.
