Just a little good news
Tuesday, November 08, 2011
We were happy today when the dr told us the cancer has not spread outside of the prostrate! He felt that it had been caught early but until they did the scans, it wasn't certain.
He went over the options and answered all but one of my questions without me even asking him. The only one he didn't address was what would he advise if this was his loved one and he gave me that answer too.
He has referred us to a urologist who specializes in oncology and does nothing but prostrate cancer. We will meet with him on Thursday and get more information and then on Friday we will meet with the oncologist who has taken care of DH for over 6 yrs for another condition and see what he thinks. Then it will be time to make the final decision of how to treat this.
We are both feeling more relieved tonite knowing that the cancer has not spread and the outlook is quite positive.
Thanks to everyone who has offered words of encouragement, given us hope by telling us their story, and especially all the prayers. I have read so much of what was sent to DH and it has helped to keep our spirits up in this time while we were waiting to find out the results.
May God Bless all of You.
