Cystitis

And it's not Me!!!  Yes himself has been struck down - this is to add to his bowel woes - can it get any better?  Well actually yes - there's only 3 more sessions.  We've been going well for the past few days - although I'm a bit wrecked.  I leave work, get the bus home, quick bite to eat, drive back into town to the hospital, then drive home. I'm hoping that they will stick to giving him late appointments as the half day doesn't eat into my annual leave as much as todays lunchtime appointment - but then again a day off is always welcome - the pity about it was that it's at very short notice for work.
Anyway I think the not going in and out on the bus is doing himself some good - there's no getting off the bus at random places to go to the toilet.  However as mentioned the radiation is causing some cystitis so the do I don't I need to pee is starting to cause as much trouble as the bowel.  
At least the weekend is ahead of us and there will be no need to be straying far from the house - Himself has vowed not to leave the house for at least a fortnight after the treatment has finished.  I'm not too sure how serious he was about it...

So as I said - 3 more sessions, 1 Doctors chat- (hospital blood test results), new blood test, next month check up with surgeon (from the prostatectomy) to discuss the MRI he had before the radiotherapy and the results of the blood test.  After that we have to wait for about 6month to see if the radiation has actually worked. 
Nothing to it - eek!

Argh, when it rains it pours. Hopefully the cystitis will be sorted quickly but you may want to look into pocketoilets. They are advertised for use in traffic jams (for guys) so they have to be pretty discreet.
