another surgery confirmed

this past week, Pablo had video testing on his bladder. he has been having issues in that area for ages and it drives him crazy. it`s gotten so bad that he`s had to self-catheterize at certain points. he`s even been to the hospital because that didn`t even work. anyway, his urologist scheduled this appointment for video testing months ago and Pablo has been patiently waiting for it to happen and to finally get answers.

without trying to give too much detail, during the testing they filled his bladder and he couldn`t pee. that confirmed it right there. his brain tumour (discovered almost two years ago) has done some real damage to his urinary system.

he now needs ANOTHER surgery. he needs to have a pacemaker put on his bladder. date to be confirmed.

  2. I send prayers to you all! My son had bowel and bladder surgery at 5 years old - it was scary but he came through with flying colours!! Keep positive thoughts and all will be well! *hugs*

  6. Oh no way! I'm so sorry I didn't see this sooner. Self-catheterization? Okay, that officially makes him the bravest man I know.

    I'm sending good thoughts and hugs your way.

  7. Thanks Girlfriend! Surgery has to happen in Toronto and now we've been told he has to make 3 trips there - 2 pre-surgery and the third trip will be for the actual surgery. This really sucks and what sucks even more is that the whole thing is going to take about 6 months before it's all over.

  9. It's a royal piss off and effin' sucks all at the same time. Typical of the shitty luck we've been having. Now I gotta find out if any part of the travelling can be covered by my insurance at work.
