Well after 10 days we finally heard, one core positive, gleason 3+3. I have no idea what that even means but that's what I will learn from you guys. We meet on Tues to talk.
1.My hubby has been constipated for 30 years severely, and I know this is not going to help healing after surgery. How can we start to work on that now, and through the healing time. He takes 2 stool softeners each day and milk of magnesia every third day. The pain meds are constipating aren't they.
2.I think he is going to get the robot surgery. Do they have any comparison charts as to the difference in incontenince, ED, getting all the cancer out, between the two types of surgery?
3.Before the surgery should they do a bone scan or CT?
4.What questions do we ask the doc at our meeting? I know the surgeon has done around a hundred by now with the robot. We live in the wild west so that is probably the best we can do as far as experience.
5.How and when do they check the lymph glands and are they in the legs, or abdomine?
DB is so scared and me too. Thanks for any info and help.
