Hi,
I am not sure if this is the right group to post this in.
My husband has prostate cancer that has now blocked his kidney.
He has hydronephrosis and kidney stones.
Th urologist did a TURP on Monday and tried to get a stent in his kidney but the tumor blocked him.
He put dye ect in the kidney but he could not find the opening to the kidney.
He is sending my husband to have ANGIOGRAPHY done and try to put a tube in his kidney through his back.
If they get the tube in he will have surgery to put a stent in the kidney.
If this does not work he has to choices one is to let the kidney die or have tubes in his back that need changing every 3 months.
Jacky
