Saw the specialist 9/22. Definitely a mass. Which I knew.. scheduled me immediately next day for mri and petscan.. which confirmed. Good news is bladder and urethra look good but lymph nodes may be infected. Did pre op and am scheduled for complete pelvic exam and biopsies this coming Tuesday. My son is on fast track home from Chicago to take me. I'm mentally confident the end result will be fine but preparing myself for a rough ride. Side note- would this be a crazy time to get a dog?

@rainyp So you already have the results from the PET and MRI and those images showed no problems with the urethra and bladder. Now on to the lymph nodes that will be examined in more detail with the pelvic and biopsies on September 27. This is happening fast which is good as you will soon have more information. It's great, too, that your son is on his way home and you will have his support. Yes, it could be a rough road ahead or ….it might not be. Let's wait until you have more information. That's what I tell myself when I imagine all sorts of scenarios that get to the worst possible outcome and I say "Don't believe everything you think. Just because you think it doesn't make it a fact".

Bringing home a dog? Now, you're speaking my language. We don't have a dog right now. Not because I don't want to have a dog but because my partner is opposed right now. Otherwise, I'd have 2 or 3 dogs by now. Nope, it's not a crazy time to adopt a dog but maybe wait until after you have more information from the biopsy? A dog would be such a wonderful companion.

What type of dog would you like? A big dog? A small dog that will sleep in your lap?
