Hello Bedelia, I don't think it wise at all to not have information you want BUT I also recognize that some people, your husband sounds like one, have a very low threshold for information they want. I'm a bit this way and my wife, a former OR nurse, covers by finding out all sorts of things and I'm glad to leave it in her hands.
I don't blame you for going overboard with research, it's likely your way of coping. However, the dye is cast. By this time next week the prostate and the cancer will be out, gone, likely forever and he'll be back home doing just fine. While a script
for spasms may seem reasonable to you, the doctor may have many options as to what drug to use and in what strength and will make those decisions if needed. And, I'd not worry about
the oncall. Our family recently had a weekend medical issue in the hosptial and it turned out the oncall was a world renown expert that nobody gets in to see without a ten month out appointment. It was his turn to be on on Sunday.
It's easy for me to say, and I know it's tough to do, but the next five days can best be spent putting PCa out of your mind and enjoying the week, and each other, just as any normal week. Your husband has great stats (aside from the fact it's cancer, that is) and I'm sure all will be well.
