About 5 weeks ago my husband of 7 months had a full blood test which showed that his PSA was 5.3 so GP sent him for a Prostrate ultrasound which showed a large mass. He the had an urgent CT scan of his abdomen which showed the liposarcoma. He is a stroke survivor so we thought the pains were from that. The tumour is squashing his bladder and stomach and causes pain. He is having surgery at The Prince of Wales hospital on the 15th. Professor Crowe is not sure if he will have to take some bowel as well because of the size of the tumour. We thought he was just getting fat. I am leatning about Isolated Patient services as we live in Goulburn. As a carer and a wife tnis is difficult because we do not know what to expect as this is rare. Also we don't know how long he will be in hospital. Looks like we'll be spending Christmas in hospital! Anyway that's my vent.
