Ive been visiting several forums on this website and trying to get some sort of advice. My apologies if youve read my similar posts elsewhere on here.
My father 64 years old underwent robotic surgery for his prostate cancer a couple of weeks ago. The dr said it went great and everything was fine. However, after a week, he was experiencing pain while urinating. He would go to restroom, and only pee about two drops and very painful. He was given a stronger dose of what would be the equivalent of azo (dont remember name) and he was feeling much better. But today it ran out, and hes in a lot of pain again. As I type, I can hear him heading to the bathroom, every 15 min.
He has gone to the Emergency room twice, thinking it could be an infection, but they find nothing. His Dr is on vacation and not able to be located. So, Im trying anything I can to help him. Im very thankful for the surgery, but I feel horrible seeing him like this.
Any suggestion, advice, comment will help as I am running out of things to say to him and I want to better inform myself of ways I can help.
Thanks again, and chins up. Youre all very strong and brave to be surviving these frustrations, and I wish you all the best.
