    Relay For Life May 2013
    1st time we did Relay it poured rain , so we did not walk- all survivors , teams, caregivers walked up the stage to tell how many years they have had cancer. So inspirational to see!

      He went to his family practice doctor, she is the one who sent him for CT, yes he has a 2 year plan at Cancer Center, this bloating symptom became noticeable while trying to do exercises after physical therapy the last few weeks and wanted to see what doctor thought before we traveled for the summer , we did not want to go away and then him get sick and have to tell this story to a new doctor somewhere -- as for the Cancer he has never see anyone but the urologist that did both surgeries,they said they only would send him to oncologist if he needed chemo or radiation, we had asked to be sent to oncologist when the prostate cancer was found after he complained about back pain after the kidney surgery, he is 52 , and the Famlly practice doctor was the one who ordered the PSA, so we were shocked that he would need a second surgery. He had 3 surgeries in 2012, Gallblader is how the kidney cancer was found - he had new CT today , so waiting to get results.

      Kathym2013,
      Hello, I am an oncology nurse and I'm wondering if perhaps they are not looking for ascites. The way you describe it sure sounds like it might be. Does your husband have any shortness of breath and a decreases appetite ? I hope this resolves soon. Best of luck to you, Carm RN.

      So Ct scan showed no changes (good) as for bloating , just follow up with gastro... he has a appointment for all doctors in July at Cancer center for 1 year on kidney and 6 month on prostate... going to hit the road for the mountains Saturday! hopefully we can go 5 weeks with NO doctors? Not that we will get much done since we are out of shape since we have not been to the shack with a view in 2 years -- sit on the deck and enjoy the view! No internet where I am going to be- Take care and thanks for all the info and support!

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): What a roller coaster ride! His incision ripped opened - back to dr office 2x I had to pack it for several weeks, terrible pain, depression, fear and anxiety,
