I post a lot of funny stuff, work related pics, family pics & anything else I find interesting here.
This isn't one of those posts.
Several months ago my dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Out of 13 samples taken during the biopsy, only one showed any cancer. They felt that they had caught it very early. His Dr. advised him that even if they did nothing
, he would probably die of something else. One of the things dad & I share is that if we do something, we are thorough, we make sure it is done right.
Yesterday my dad's prostate was completely removed with DaVinci Robotic surgery
. The 5 hour operation took 11 hours. The operation itself went smoothly, but as they were counting the tools used during surgery, they came up missing one biopsy needle used during the procedure. After many, many X-rays, the Dr's were confident that the errant needle was not inside my dad.
Pops had us worried there for a little bit, but he's fine now. Please keep him in your prayers for a smooth recovery.
