Interim Report

Good news: the double J stents went in this time.  They should relieve pressure on my kidneys and bladder from the tumour and protect the ureter during the next surgery.

On the other hand, I feel like I have a bladder infection -- and I do; I have a world-class case of gas; and incontinence-are-us.

I wasn't going to write that last bit, but I remembered I meant to be honest about all this.

Tomorrow more consultations in Lyon.  I'll write in a couple of days when I'm bound to feel better.


  1. So proud of your honesty! We are off to the UK for a few days as our friend lost his battle that started fifteen months ago with a sarcoma.

  2. Well according to the link you provided, incontinence is normal...or maybe (in that link) the stent moved a little?


  3. I'm sorry for your loss, Lindy Lou.

  4. Normal, but perhaps understated on the site. Then there's this: "At times you may notice blood in the urine." I think that should read "At ALL times." However, I choose to go with the part that says it'll get better.
