Hopefully you will feel better in a few days time. Sounds v uncomfortable.

They have put dad on virtual polyp clinic for surveillance. No idea why as there was no mention of polyps on the report. Maybe to be on safe side as he had RT. Macmillan were unsure too.

The pathology results for dads endoscopy shows "epithelial changes indefinite for dysplasia" in one of the biopsy. He already has Barret's Esphogues.

They want him to up his meds and go back for another endoscopy in January so they can take further biopsies.

If dysplasia is confirmed then i am guessing they treat this, as this is pre cancer cells. Im not too sure what all this means but can't believe something else has come up! Its stressful enough dealing with one type of cancer,  let alone worrying about the risk of another.. although i know many people have multiple primary cancers.

Just feeling crappy today

Give Dad my regards, it sounds like his problems are worse than mine!

Hello!

Hope everyone is doing well.

I think i totally forgot to post dad's PSA results in August. It was <0.01. Same as the previous one, so that is good news. Next one is in March. Fingers crossed.

He is having another endoscopy in January for the Barrett Esophagus to check if the biopsy still shows pre cancer cells. If so, they will treat it.

He is doing well. Still very active. Hot flushes are still there but the episodes are shorter. 

Day at a time hey!

Yes, I am doing fine. I am glad to say nothing exciting happening with this cancer, which is good. Next PSA December, hoping it is uneventful.

Glad to hear you are both well Bob and Dave. You both have your next PSA's in December! Please keep us posted with the results. Glad to hear nothing exciting is happening with the cancer lol! 

Bob.. is this the follow up Sigmanoscopy? 

Dad's one showed a slight tear which has healed now so no more blood... For now!
