Prostate Trouble

Went to see Dom's Urologist in Slidell today.  As usual, the guy was way behind with his appointments.

When he finally saw us, over an hour late, he looked at the PSA numbers from Tulane, and said that they were "very elevated" and that he wanted to perform another needle biopsy of the Prostate.

However, Dom is on Coumadin (a blood thinner) to prevent blood clots from the Thalidomide.  So....doc will contact our cancer specialist, Safah, and discuss options.

Too many flippin' doctors!  Unfortunately, all are needed, and all are specialists in their field, but man-  we're only about 5 weeks into this, and have grown sick and tired of office visits.

So, should know something next week.  Biopsy tentatively scheduled for Mon 11/3.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.  We're getting a little sad that Christine and Michael are flying home on Sunday.... how the week has FLOWN BY!
