Frank Lamb Posted July 9, 2006 Share Posted July 9, 2006 Hello everyone,I guess I am overdue to update.I've had a pretty bad last several weeks and haven't been posting too much.Mostly just reading. Had a CT scan on June 5th at the Va hospital in Pgh.They always use a dye for those and tell me to drink a lots of fluids cause the dye is very hard on the kidneys.Well I drank a lot of fluids all day and woke up next morning and couldn't pee.Had to but couldn't.To make a long story short my wife has taken me to either the ER or the hospital at least 1 or 2 times a week ever since then.First trip to Butler VA emergency and they were unable to insert a cathater in me.They put me in an ambulance and sent me to Butler Memorial Hosp.They got a cathater in and sent me home.One week later at Butler Va for checkup they sent a camera up there and said OH shi_ and made appt at Pgh. VA for 2 weeks later.Put another cathater in and sent me home.One week later back to ER so sick I couldn't stand up,now a bad urinary infection.Finally then the Pgh. VA last Thursday for a biopsy of the badly enlarged prostate gland I have.They suspect I have prostate cancer now but don't know til the 21rst at next appt.when biopsy results are back. Are you all asleep yet.Ha Ha. So anyway,I have still been staying active as possible,(it is hell playing golf with a cathater and a pee bag.) but I have been,also been painting the house a little at a time.I have had this damn thing in now for over a month already. The good news is that the Ct scans show no new growth or spread yet,and the cancer in my lung and airway have not grown in the last 3 or 4 months. Sorry to complain to you all but now you know how I am doing.Hopefully no more hospitals til the 21rst of this month at which time I will know what is in store. Thanks to all of you for your concerns and caring.I will do a better job of keeping you informed. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
