I'm pppppp ooo'd with dad's doctor
My dad's doctor's nurse called today telling me dad needed to come back in. She said his PSA test came back high and the doctor wants to start him on chemo.
Back in September of 2006 dad had surgery not for cancer but same area, the doctor told me that dad was clear of cancer and all of the test had come back ok till this week. I don't understand why he wouldn't want to do a biopsy or other test to see how far along it is.
Dad and I have been through so much with this prostate problem up and down being told he has cancer , he doesn't have cancer. I feel like an idiot with so many confusing stories.
This is not going to set well with dad and I know he will not go for chemo. Robert is coming over tomorrow so we can talk about it. I for one do not want to be the one to tell dad. I want his doctor to tell him and explain this to him. We also have to talk about getting him signed up with a nursing home for when the time comes and he can't live at home any longer. He knows of the one he want to go to, so that makes it easier but when he has to go I don't know if he will without a fight. I don't know. I've nerve had to handle something likes this and it scares me. I have power of medical and finances so I don't have to worry about getting him the care he needs it just getting the right care and good care that concerns me.
I'm not having much faith in doctor's right now.
This is not the first doctor that dad seen, the other one did the very same thing. Telling both of us that dad was fine and he did not have cancer. Then one day out of the blue he told us dad did have cancer. So I took dad to the one he's seeing now and now we're back where we were 2 years ago.
