We were waiting for news - and it's good news

My husband had surgery about 10 days ago. It was a prostate biopsy - a rather nasty procedure where the surgeon takes something like 40 samples out of the organ to look for cancer. We were fairly confident that he'd be fine but we went for the results today and I'm happy to say the doctor confirmed there was nothing interesting in there and he doesn't want to see him again unless his blood tests get to more than double the level they were at. So we're very happy with that. The appointment was 40 minutes late - which sadly means that the guy who went in before us probably didn't get good news. Poor soul. I hope whatever the surgeon found can be treated.

From experience I would suggest that if, at a later date they decide something is needing treatment that you should get a second opinion. I hope whatever symptoms he is having dissipate and do not increase.We have done the prostate biopsy two different times. First time, no treatment, second time they SAID there was cancer to treat, however, if we had it to do over again, we probably would have made another choice.
@boiboing The fuss is that it’s my bum and some other blokes finger. Last time I met my doctor I made a point of checking out his fingers - they are huge. I must change to a lady doctor, not for anything inappropriate, but for the sake of her fingers being small and nimble.
