It’s a balancing act as far as risk goes. I would think a discussion with your rheumatologist would be worthwhile. I hated methotrexate and it wasn’t really helping me after 10 or 11 years on it. I am not pain free or without issues on sulphasalasine but my choice is to go minimum on the arthritis, sounds like you have a lot more pain and mobility issues so no easy choices there.
Hi Seamus .thank you for your reply.its good to hear that sepsis is not very common..we are very afraid this will happen again the next time a biopsy is due .my husband have been put on active surveillance as the urologist said the cancer is was in 2 cores out of12 .other wise my husband was in very good health until this event.He is extremely tired with little or no appetite.hope fully he will start to feel better soon.
Thanks John. Seeing the surgeon tomorrow. Been away for a week cat sitting and had a funeral to go to and now looking after my wife's cousin's little dog - it is such hard work as she feels she has been abandoned by her Dad! She is so sweet though but she has to be with us all the time - though after the first two nights she settled to sleeping in the family room quite well. We just make a great fuss of her and spoil her with special food and take her for lots of walks so quite tiring. She goes berserk when one of us leaves the room bless her I think she thinks we are abandoning her too and every morning she has to look in all the rooms - think she is looking for her Dad. Only once she has tried to climb the stairs and usually stays at the
Hi, Going to see the surgeon tomorrow to get results of the MRI. Got everything crossed that it is going to be a partial knee and hoping that he can give me an idea on the date as keeping everything on hold at the moment. Got a wedding coming up in August and other dates in May June and July to consider but having to tell everyone we can't commit or book hotels - just watching the prices go up the closer we get to the dates - still my knee is more important.
If you need to know things you must ask the questions - I know it is hard to know what questions to ask. You can also ask for copies of all the test results and letters your consultant has and sends to your GP and other consultants etc. Just ask every time you see them to be copied into the mailing list. I have been doing this for over 20 years and it is never a problem and it means that I have copies of everything concerning my condition when I go to see a new Dr/consultant and you would be amazed sometimes at how much is not on your medical notes. In the May after my prostate cancer treatment I went to see a cardiologist as I had atrial Fibrillation and asked my GP for a copy of my notes to take with me as there would not be time for them.
Hi new here .my husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer last August.he had to have a biopsy recently and he had a very bad reaction to it .he collapsed and I found it hard to wake him up .got the dr and was sent to hospital .he was diagnosed with sepsis .he was given iv antibiotics and fluids.he was extremely sick .eventually he was sent home on meds .he wasn’t home long and had a bad headache .vague .not focused on what we were saying.we thought he was having a stroke.back to hospital.meds were increased.i am very worried about him .his Gleason score is 6 .the cancer is slow growing.thank you .
Has a physiotherapist checked you’re doing the exercises properly. I was lucky enough to see a physiotherapist a few weeks after surgery and when she checked I wasn't doing them properly. I found that after the catheter came out I leaked when walking, that reduced to when I was walking fast. Fast forward a few years and because I’ve had salvage radiotherapy on top for f the surgery I’m leaking mostly very small amounts but sometimes I get a bigger leak without any warning especially when tired. Stick with it, things will improve.
Hi everyone Recentlydiagnosed at 71 with a 3+4=7 Gleason and PSA of 60. Bone scan clear but still waiting for pelvic scan. My RA is treated biologically with infusions that lower the immune system but has been suspended as they are unsure how it will affect cancer treatment, I'm suffering because of it. Has anyone else completed cancer treatment while on biologics?
Hi I’m sorry to hear about your husband. My scan failed to show up any cancer. That was a big relief as I was expecting to hear it was metastatic, I am waiting now to hear what they recommend next. While it was initially a huge shock to realize I was not cured, I have adjusted to the prospect of being an ongoing patient, whether that is immediate or some time out. Some cancers like leukaemias are chronic diseases rather than acute and it’s going the same way I think with prostate cancer. You can live with it for many years. I think most if not all prostate cancer patients are unprepared for the degree of uncertainty and shifting staging and prognoses. Many are cured by prostatectomy which I believe falsely reassures everyone who has had a p.
To anyone looking for a 'good' hospital for their treatment, you can look at the Care Quality Commission's ratings to judge whether the hospital is right for you. For example, the Royal Marsden London is rated "Outstanding" but my hospital, Pinderfields, is rated "In Need of Improvement". Simply search for the hospital using the boxes half way down the page.
Hi Fran, Sorry that your husband had to have his op. My advice is to go to the Urology Dept. of your hospital. The nurses there will be able to give you advice on how to do pelvic floor exercise to regain control of his bladder and answer your queries. I never managed to regain control of my bladder after my op. and have to wear pads which is supplied by NHS. Best wishes.
