Hi beej Slight different in that my dad just diagnosed started ht treatment immediately and had 7 suspicious areas on his ribs only. After different scans it was confirmed that 3 were cancer. So has recently started chemo for 6 doses if his body will take it then a few weeks rest he'll start radiotherapy to blast the prostate. Not sure how the ribs will be dealt with specifically though!
Thank you Paul. I take it the Brachytherapy caused the loo trips - would you mind saying what sort of Brachy you had, ie high dosage or the other sort, and if you had external beam radiotherapy along with it? Also the loo trips, were they for urgent needs to wee or diarrhea and have you suffered pain with that? I do wish you all the best Paul. Richard.
I have undergone Brachytherapy and although initially I was making many trips to the loo I have still been able to work full time. I restart my Immunotherapy for my Bladder cancer in October (when I return from my hols) and I will be having laser treatment on High Grade Oral Dysplasia (also when I return from hols) Positive Mental Attitude is the best way to deal with the treatments!!
Hi RobertFW1 Just following on from the excellent advise that excavator gave you about travel insurance I thought I'd provide you with the link to the travel insurance group . If you want to join us over there just click on the link I've provided. Once you've joined look for the post called 'Recommended Travel Insurance' (it's usually on the first page) as it's where we try to keep all the recommendations from other community members in one place. Unfortunately it can be more difficult to find travel insurance when you have a cancer diagnosis. It is best to phone the travel companies rather than do online quotes. Make sure you have all the information to hand about your diagnosis and treatment before contacting the insurers. This is a list
I don't think there's any specific restriction on flying after prostate surgery. Obviously it would be very inconvenient if you still had a catheter in, I just wouldn't have done that. If you're suffering incontinence, that could also be an inconvenience but shouldn't stop you really. The only thing I might warn you about is where are you flying to? Are you staying there any length of time? If you're going to a non EU country, you will need travel/medical insurance and you will find it expensive! If you're goingb to an EU country, might be a good idea to get back before 31st Oct.
Hellodolly The importance of the PSA test every six months depends on what treatment your husband has had. It sounds as if he may have had a prostatectomy, but if he sees an oncologist it sounds like he had radiotherapy. Following my prostatectomy 7 1/2 years ago I was supposed to have a PSA every six months and an appointment. I've never seen an oncologist, I always saw a urologist. I quite often found that it was more than 6 months between appointments. In the end I just had the PSA done every 6 months at my GP surgery. I shouldn't worry too much about the appointment, if you understand the significance of the PSA result and it's OK, the actual appointment isn't that important. There is a move now to "Risk stratified follow up" after canc.
You can always ask the specialist prostate cancer nurses on Prostate Cancer UK. the number is 0800 074 8383 - a free phone call they are there Mon- Fri 9am to 6pm and Wednesdays 9am to 8pm. I got a lot of information and explanations from them during my journey. I don't think I ever managed to contact and speak to my "key worker" I think she e mailed me some info once as my GP hadn't received a letter so she scanned it and e mailed to me. A lot of the time these poor people are so overworked they barely have time to breathe. I have to say I got a lot of help from my urologist's secretary whose father had prostate cancer at the time so she had a lot of info to give. Give the prostate cancer nurses a ring tonight they are there until 8pm. The.
