It's been more than a month since my last post and I apologise for that. Pat was diagnosed with kidney cancer but has since then had his left kidney removed. We went back to the consultant 2 weeks ago for a post operative consult and the good news is that the pathology report on his lymp node came back clear. So far, he is clear from cancer but will have to go for CT scans to make sure that it has not come back.
He is on the road to recovery but the poor guy is still in pain. It is about 6 weeks since his operation and he is still feeling raw. The consultant prescribed him some pain killers during the last visit but Pat stopped them after taking them for only a day and a half. The pain killers made him feel sick and he said that was not a nice feeling, so he has to bear the pain and hopefully, all these will go away soon.
