Hello everyone,
 
     Got the cat scan and the bone scan Friday and will get the results Monday. Worried a little but we had a few laughs during the bone scan. I was watching the computer while Mo was in the machine and saw some white spots on his ribs. A second person came and said to have more close up from the ribs. Came back and asked if he had trauma to the ribs in the past. " Yeah, I fell and my side hurt for a month" That was during a family reunion game. You put your forehead on a baseball bat and turn around 5 times, then you try to race! (Alcool was involved, what a surprise) So, be careful, your misdeed will show up on the scan! 
 
     We read about Dr. Vipul Patel at Ohio University Hospital but he moved to Florida. So if you loved your surgeon in Ohio, or know of a reputable place, please respond.
 
Warm thoughts to all of you,

The urologist recommended Dr. John Burgers at Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus, OH. We have an appointment in a few days. That was fast! I posted last week about reducing the prostate size before surgery, I had no reply. But the Dr said it's not done on a regular basis. Let me know if you have any comment on this hospital, or if you have another option in Columbus. Thanks to all

Bone scan negative, ct scan maybe some lymph node
