I'm a full-time caregiver for my parents. (Mom-Alzheimer's & Parksinson's)
Dad with a heart condition & has not been open to my going into Doctor appts.
His Primary Care Physician called me to say his PSA was 4111 & that I needed to
get Dad to the oncologist. His prostrate removed 1997 & when I asked Dad about it, he told me not to worry about it. He's had a death wish for years & figures if he just ignores it he'll drop dead. He's been in terrible pain for months & last week he finally agreed to see the Oncologist.
(PSA: 18 June/08; 58 June/09; October/10 4111 & NOW 5800......
Iron levels are undectable
Blood test show internal bleeding
He had bone scan Friday & the radiologist showed my husband the hot spots.
full spine; left shoulder & collarbone; full hips & pelvis.
This has caught me off-guard & I can't even think of what to ask the doctor.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
We go back for the results on Wednesday.
