Inspection, Procedure & Follow-up

In my post ‘, it felt like home‘, I wrote the following –

Their offer was accepted!

In my post ‘Dr. F. Follow-up‘, I wrote the following –

I will be having another IVP (Intravenous Pyelogram) hopefully next week to see if the scare tissue and cancer is blocking more of my ureter opening.  If so, a stint will be inserted and then in the next couple of weeks another surgery to remove the scar tissue and cancer will take place.

In today’s post, I write the following –

Okay, I had the IVP procedure this past Monday.  Per

Intravenous Pyelogram (IVP)

Intravenous pyelogram (IVP) is an x-ray exam that uses an injection of contrast material to evaluate your kidneys, ureters and bladder and help diagnose blood in the urine or pain in your side or lower back. An IVP may provide enough information to allow your doctor to treat you with medication and avoid surgery.

I had another appointment with my urologist this past Wednesday.  Dr. F. viewed the results of the IVP procedure and it was determined there is no blockage in my ureter from my right kidney.  There will be no stint inserted into my ureter prior to my next surgery.  Dr. F. indicated the cancer and scar tissue are very close to the ureter opening.  Upon my next surgery Dr. F. will insert a temporary stint in my ureter, then remove the cancer and scar tissue, then remove the stint.

As you know we accepted the offer for our home.  An inspection was requested and that took place this past Monday.  Upon the inspection, there were no major issues that would result in not moving forward with the transaction of selling the home.  One of the conditions the buyers requested in their offer is that the closing not be until August 2nd.  This is prefect for Gary and I; we have more time to downsize and plan and it provides me more time for my surgery and recovery.

My urologist is aware of our plans to travel the US for a while.  Our initial travel adventure plans included traveling back to Texas to visit my family for Thanksgiving.  At that time, I will have my next follow-up appointment with Dr. F. for my next cystoscopy.  Beyond that point we will figure out what the next steps will be in maintaining my follow-ups.

As soon as Gary and I complete our travel itinerary, I will share it with you.

We initially thought the home would sell faster and we would be on the road in June or July.  Now that it will be August, some adjustments will need to be made.

Once these adjustments are made, I will share to you our exciting travel itinerary.

The inspection of the home is complete.  The IVP procedure is complete.  The follow-up plans are made.

Next is the continued downsizing, the continued planning, the surgery and recovery; then the travel adventure begins.

  1. I have been reflecting on karma this week and you are an exemplar of what karma is. You spread goodness and kindness and it is coming back to you! I am so happy. To have met you. To know you. And to see your life opening up it’s next chapter and ready to embrace you.

  4. Oh Yes ! Good news on a Friday 😀
    (and as you know it’s Fridays I’m in love – well among other things 🙂 )
    This is great Terry , you’ll have more time for your health and no need to hurry through the house closing , so no point really to go all OCD and stressed about having everything done perfectly and on time 😉
    Enjoy this time , it’s like a stop on the landing before you climb the next flight of stairs (oh my ! there must be something in the water I’m sipping today 🙂 )
    Besides you’ll have more time to get Ms.Rosy more relaxed in front of the camera , so she will be in all the clips you’ll be sending us from the road 🙂
    Turtle Hugs ❤

  5. It is all happening Terry, you have a plan in action and it could not be better. Perhaps not a bad thing to start your new adventures a month later than wanted, as this will give you some nice time to ‘recharge’ and recover, without any unnecessary stress. I am so happy for you, Gary and Roxy 🙂 Happy weekend to you. 🙂

    • Yes, Sarah, it certainly is a great start! We have much to do now as we need to continue our downsizing and planning and still maintaining a home for a little longer. It is all good! Have a happy weekend! 🙂

  6. Happy Friday!!! Hope all goes well with your surgery and recovery. Also great news with the house too! Hopefully you will have plenty of time to recover before moving. Looking forward to finding out your plans for your adventure. I hope to visit america, so I like to see where others go and recommend. So far the states of Texas and Alabama are on the list!! I have only been to Newark airport for a stop over on route to Canada.
