hi @pauline
have you any update ??
and is John feeling any better in himself ?

it really is a worry -- i just want to send some positive hugs your way !!!!
[[[hugs]]]  xxx

Paul, thank you for your concern.  John keeps having his appointment with the Urologist postponed.  It was 7th December, then moved to 4th January and is now 18th January.  His last PSA test was in October but not high enough for the cancer to show on a scan.  He will be having another PSA test a week before he sees the Consultant.

John has also been bleeding on and off from the bladder since November and has been hospitalised twice since then.  They flush through his bladder each time it happens and have also given him another cystoscopy.   He still passes blood now and again so it is something else that we need to discuss with the Urologist. 

John is not feeling very good most of the time.  He doesn't think that he is emptying his bladder completely and has some pains in the lower half of his body, around his intestines.  He also gets very tired and he is naturally very worried about his health. 

Thank you for your hugs, Paul.  It is always good to know that others care.

Oh dear Pauline.

I am so sorry to hear all this about abdominal pains etc.  Would it be worth him seeing the GP?  Just to set his mind at rest if nothing else?

Lots of HUGS from us too.

Probably, but he is trying to finish the decorating and the carpet is being fitted tomorrow.  He is worried about that as much as he is about his health at the moment.  He has passed more blood and clots this morning though. 

I have finished my "rest" now so I must go and help him.  Thanks for the hugs, Patti.
