During my conversation with my GP I told her that I ve feelings that I don't fully empty my bladder
Than she said OK lets check up your prostate than asked me if I prefer one of her male colleagues to exzam me, I said a finger is a finger male or female I don't mind but logically your finger is smaller than his and you can be more gentle .
***I WAS WRONG!***
She asked me that How do I feel?I said I don't know ..I don't get fingers everyday in my bum!
But I did have pain though. Any way after that Had MRI and Biopsy than
I'm diagnosed with prostate cancer
But The way I was told that I have cancer was so ridiculous no respect emotional support etc.
Anyway I was told that by the person whom told me that I have a cancer a key worker my key worker NURSE!
I have never heard of from her again no phone calls no letters nothing.
After Attended a Surgery school session I seen a radiotherapy specialist lady. She told me that if I want to freeze my sperms thab she could help me for that but once again nothing heard of from her again as well.
I was supposed to be having RS this coming saturday but they phoned me up yesterday and said operation has been cancelled. Than this morning they phoned me up again and I can have the operation tomorrowmorning!
Update: Had RP surgery operation last December 2018.since than having rest,doing pelvic floor exercises ,same time attended a seminar of ED at the hospital.
But after the operation I had a rough time very rough time.
After the operation I was feeling sick vomiting all the times,nurses supposed to help me out for walking but they did not! According to procedures after the RP surgery all the patients should walk to prevent blood cladding. First night was horrible really horrible the bank nurses/agency (I was told after when I complaint about them ) they were so loud ,noisey, middle of the night time they were playing music videos etc from their phone but they did not use headphones. They were even singing their ethical songs!!! They did not say good night.good morning etc at all.they were so rude. At one point one of the nurse she was was pulling my catheter I asked her EXCUSE ME WHAT ARE YOU DOING YOUR HURTING ME!she did not even say sorry at all.I think she was checking the night bag if it was full or level of it just to write it down but she was hurting me same time.
That in the morning day staff arrived there were 2 inexperienced nurse male and a female I asked them if they could swap my night cathere bag with a day one so I can start walking ,they couldn't manage to swap the bags so I asked for a senior nurse to do it.he did that just like that.
Than same day afternoon I asked a female nurse why's than yesterday after the operation nobody helped me to get of the bed and walk?answer were I was vomiting maybe that's why.
Anyway same evening new night staff nurses arrived (I stayed 2 nights at the hospital)
One of the nurse after she attached the night bag large one she forgot to turn the tap off so I messed up bed ,legs etc with my urine .she did not say even sorry afterwards but she did cleaned up my bed and my legs.
Fallowing day I was discharged from the hospital without any painkillers ,so they expected from me to go to a pharmacy saturday cold dark December night get pain killers after 6.30 pm.I couldn't, I live on my own so a friend of mine had to get them by Monday and I had to suffer almost 3 days taking panadol. Yes I can clearly understand that NHS has been under pressure and governments finance cuts endless but they should have given at least 1 day supply of medicines.
So why all these consistent problems happening against cancer patient's..any idea?
