Post-Radiation Bladder Bleeding
An_252982 posted:
My father-in-law, who is 72 or so, is suffering from a lot of clotting/bleeding from his bladder. He's had surgery 3 or 4 times to caurterize the bladder wall wounds, which are from Radiation about two or three years ago for Prostate cancer. He loses a lot of blood, then they give him more blood transfusions, then surgery, then Hyperbolic chambers. It's an ongoing process. He's failing and we don't know what to do. Where can he go next? UPenn to a Urology Oncologist? A cancer center? Advice, please!
