Thank you for your responses. Tony you asked about his back if there were any more options. I don't know if there are we are seeing the back Doctor on the 17th but I sure hope so.
If we can convince him to take the hormone treatments would any of his medical history be effected? He had 4 unsucessful dododinal(sp) ulcer operations which was finally cured in 1988 by a esophigal (sp) wrap. he had heart by-pass surgery in 92 followed by a number of stents due to more blockages and an enlarged heart. The heart Doc gave him a clean bill of health last Dec. and didn't want to see him for a year. He had a cartoid (sp) artery stent placed in 2000 due to blockage. He had spinal menigitius(sp) in 2005 which he caught at the hosip. during one of his back operations. It took 2 weeks to cure the menigitius (sp) but he has never felt good since having it. Then he had the triple spinal fusion in 2007 which he is still trying to recover from. He says between the ulcers, heart, back and prostate he has already gone thru 18 major operations and can't see why I want him to take the hormone treatment now only to continue living in so much pain. My thoughts are we survived the heart operations and the back is not good but maybe we can still try to fix it. We can't give up.
Would hormones effect any of this?
Thank you Diana
