Doing ok. Thanks for the info. My dad had similar therapy when all this started with prostate cancer was told the prostate cancer was gone. Had been following up- then the bladder cancer was found.
I know He has to do the next thing in line and he is. Praying God heals him. Thats where my hope is.
Thanks again!

Heres what my dad said when i asked how he was doing and how things are going-
Still taking Tylenol for a little pain but itching is the worst thing. Have finished with all antibiotics and go Monday to get it checked and hopefully have it taken out.( by it he means the drain-has had fluid in abdomen since surgery)
Doctors have decided I need a 6 week course of proton therapy. Will have to go to Barnes every day for six weeks for a 45 minute treatment. Will probably start soon. More fun!
My poor dad 🙁 not sure what proton therapy is plan on looking into that too.. my husbands mom just past this last sunday and funeral not till feb so been busy with that too – thanks for asking though i’ve been concerned about him but also trying to comfort my husband.

He was instructed how to give the shots- i thought it was a lil strange but he seemed fine with it i know clearing up an infection is extremely important..
this is what my dad said to me from hosp before he went home-
Yes, they say the data is all good, and I will continue with antibiotics at home and follow up at the infectious disease clinic at Barnes. I do believe nurses are Still to be coming over..
Hes going back to work monday… 😳

Yeah thanks for all the advice all sounds great- dads back home now they’ve isolated the culture and said they know how to treat infection so they sent him home moved his drain deeper and he has to give himself antibiotic shots think through a pic line- he will be following up soon. I will def be trying to et up more info conf. With team 🙂
