Here's my story:
It has already been over four month since we discovered that my dad has colon cancer. He was operated on March 24, 2004. They removed the tumor, but after the pathology test, the doctors were able to tell us, that the cancer spread to his lymph nodes. I was devastated when my mom and I got the results. After the initial shock, I realized that there is still hope, there is always that little chance of a miracle happening. I do believe that only god knows what will happen, and when and how this story will end, but I am not ready to close this book. I have learned from all this, that there is just one word you can count on in situations like this, and that word is HOPE because without it you have nothing. I pray to god every night that my dad will have a full recovery, because he means the world to me and my family. The thought of not having him around to celebrate special occasions or the simple fact of not hearing his voice on the phone brings tears to my eyes. I try to be strong for everyone, but I honestly do not know what I will do without my dad, life will not be the same, a part of me will always be missing. My daughter who is 1 ÃÂ½ loves her grandfather so much; the joy he brings to her life is indescribable. I am trying to be strong for my family, I honestly do not know where I am I finding the strength to do so, but I do believe I have become a stronger person. Normally, I would not be able to deal with situations like this, but the fact that I have changes everything. I do know that might not be enough to save my dads life, but for now, it is all I have to go on.
Here's my question: My dad as had problems urinating since his Colon Cancer operation (Colostomy) back in March.
He's meeting with an urologist on the 19th of July. His family doctor said it might be a stones or his prostate. I am just hoping that the cancer has not spread to his prostate.
Even since he had the operation he has had this problem, I am scared that it's starting to spread as he had 11 out of 20 lymph nodes come back positive. Your opinion would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks a million
