My dad, a 65 yr old retired NYPD officer, did the NEO Bladder surgery for his bladder cancer after months of different "treatments and tests"....well, he has suffered some severe setbacks and we do not know what to do. He was just re-hospitalized for a virus that attacked his system...stomach issues...etc. But my otherwise in control father is giving up. The pain, the humiliation of some of the aspects of his recovery and the unexpected delays have sent him into a depression and of course, he's angry as well. The family believes he may be more responsive to someone...preferrably another guy...who has had a similar experience and made it through to the other side where their bladder behaves itself...etc. He has been released from the hospital and sent to a rehabilitation site...only to find out that the physical therapy he is there to receive isn't available until Monday...another setback as far as he is concerned as he responded "why bother"... Even if there isn't someone who can related to him...is there someone who can give me a hint or point me in the right direction to find someone who can????? Thank you
