my Dad has finally been given a date for his surgery...next Thursday!! He finished his 3 months of chemo about 6 weeks ago and it appears that he had been forgotten! After nagging my Mum to give the hospital a call as we had heard nothing since he had a CT scan during his last week of chemo, they very quickly made him an appointment to discuss the surgery. Results from CT scan show his tumour has shrunk which is a relief and I think they are optimistic that they won't have to remove too much. So he has a pre-op this Thursday and then in next week. He has consciously put on half a stone in the last 6 weeks and is out walking regularly and on his exercise bike so fingers crossed he is in going into it with the best odds.
I will keep you all posted on how he does
Thank you for all of your advice and reassurance so far
