The follow-up with the urologist that took a biopsy two weeks ago took a bad turn when he advised me that there was still a trace of potentially malignant material in the biopsy sample he had taken. The doctor said that this was a very minor recurrence that only measured on a scale of 1/2 out of 10, as compared to the original tumor removed eighteen months ago. He also said that it would be necessary to undergo yet another procedure of bladder resectioning to remove the suspicious growth. The lab report did not specifically say that it was cancer, but that it could be.
There is no hurry to go back to the operating room, but it is inevitable and I arranged for the procedure to take place around the first of October. That will give The Better Half and I some time to settle our affairs in California in the form of visiting TBH’s Mom who is seriously ill and to try and be available to be on the scene when our first great grandson is to be born elsewhere in the state.
In light of these situations, I ask for more thoughts and prayers for our Mom and for us as we head off to deal with family matters and the eventual procedures. Thanks, in advance.
