Hello Australia from Canada.
I'm sorry to hear of your husband's troubles. I didn't have such a problem and I can't provide any help but I did want to say hello and wish you the best.
We have in this forum, as you'll have seen, some very smart knowledgeable members and I'm sure if anyone can be helpful you'll hear from them. One thing I know they'll be looking for is more information on your husband's basic stats --- Gleason, pathology, etc. such as appears in our signatures. In the upper left of the sceeen if you click on "control panel" you'll be able to go to edit profile and add this information, including his age, 46, which you've given. Thanks!
One thing I've learned from my own experience, and different swellings, and such, is that surgery is a major assault on our innards and each body has a unique reaction, and combination of reactions, to this assault. Another thing I've learned is that time mostly takes care of most issues. BUT that doesn't mean you don't want to be all over this and get answers. Please keep us posted.
