Yesterday, Pablo had an appointment with his urologist. The outcome of that appointment is that Pablo has some sort of rare condition (YET ANOTHER RARE CONDITION) where his body isn't making pee like it should. Tests showed that after his bladder was drained, there was still liquid in there that should have come out. NO CLUE as to the medical terminology so my apologies. Pablo has another appointment in February for more testing but it's looking like surgery is the answer. No comment from me because it'll involve swearing.
Today, Pablo had two different appointments at the hospital. One was an EEG and the other was at the chronic pain clinic. He was at the hospital for most of the day. While at the pain clinic, they let him take a nap for about 45 minutes. EEG specialists are going to look at the EEG by tomorrow the latest. Due to the problems Pablo is having with his left ear and the subsequent balance problems, he is going to have to see an ear specialist soon. The doctor he saw at the pain clinic today was surprised that at Pablo's age (33), that he is this sick as a result of the tumour and radiation. He told Pablo that it could take 8 months to a year for Pablo to feel reasonably healthy again - mostly because it took so long for Pablo to start feeling this sick (basically from after radiation). The doctor told Pablo to start taking vitamin B6 every morning and he believes that he should start feeling better within a couple weeks. He better be right. All the doctors that Pablo has seen lately agree that Pablo should have no problem being accepted for long term disability. YES! Finally. Being down to only one income for the last 9 months has been rough.
