Topic: Update from the Sardina Care Center
Yesterday we went to Teddy's new Urologist. He said because of all the scar tissue from the Whipple and radiation that the Ureter is permanently damaged and the stents will not work down the road so Teddy will have to wear a nephrostomy bag. How far down the road we don't know. Also at that point we could talk about removal of the right kidney but whereas he usually does it with
laprioscopy (sp )surgery he cannot do that with Teddy and the surgery would be huge. He is ordering a CT Scan and calling the Oncologist today to see if he wants anything special included in the scan. How impressive! We are doing well as we expected to hear all of the above. We like everything out in front and then we know how to deal with it. I think as long as as T can golf he doesn't mind the bag too much. Thats the update for now from the Sardina Care Center! Big hugs and best wishes to you all.
