my dad is 58 years old he has had one kidney removed a few years back. He has cancer in his bladder and in the tube going to his other kidney and in his kidney. He has done chemo and he was suppossed to have surgery to remove his bladder and other kidney. He got to the hospital and they did tests and said he wasn't in shape to have the surgery. Said there was a high chance he would not make it through surgery, so they sent him home and said they were going to try radation. Do you think it will help or is it a losing battle. He passes really big blood clots and has had to have about 5 bags of blood because his blood keeps getting low.
Radiation is worth to try for sure. Especially that he can not have surgery at this point. Some cancer cells are very sensitive for radiation. Other are completely insensitive. But he should try for sure. Sometimes cancer can disappear due to radiation, very often it shrinks so the bleeding can be stopped.
Hope this will help. Regards.
