My Dad had a mass removed on Wednesday. Today he went back to see the doctor and was told he has stage 3 cancer and to come back in 2 months for a recheck. He was also told they may have to "pump" some chemo into his bladder at that time. I don't understand how they could have given him a stage if they didn't remove any lymph nodes. I do understand a little about cancer because I'm a 46 yr old survivor of colon cancer and have been for 14 months. They will be getting a second opinion. Can anyone give me some information to help us understand what is going on and is this a "normal" way to handle it? Thank you so much for listening.
