sorry to hear about your dad. My situation is similar. Getting ready to do surgery in about 2 weeks. I was wondering what stage your dad was diangnosed at and what surgery they did? I hope he is doing ok. God Bless you both.

Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): My dad went in for surgery just 4 days after he was diagnosed with cancer. When he went in for surgery they were really unsure of what they would find since all his test were not back yet. They thought the cancer was subjected to a cyst, and removed it. They later found a little more and within 4 hours, his surgery was over. The Dr was very positive about it, but did say my dad needed radiation and chemo therapy for the next few months.
