Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.
Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with additional services, such as live telephone consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.
These are all excellent questions. Unfortunately, is seems that your father is heading toward dialysis. When his kidney function gets to the point where it can no longer detox his body -- and it seems that he is heading that way pretty quickly -- he will need to decide if he want to continue to live by undergoing dialysis or if he is ready to move on.....
As to direct answers to your other questions I would suggest you contact his urologist and ask her to meet with you so that you can get the best answers possible to your very important questions. Perhaps you and your Father, as well as other interested family members, can meet with the doctor together.
Does this make sense to you?
I realize that this was not the answer you were hoping to hear but it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information.
Surely, you prefer that I tell the truth rather than what you wish to hear. Because it reflects very poorly on me unless you press one of the top three feedback choices, keep this in mind when rating my answer and please do not punish me for being honest. I understand that this may not be easy to hear, and I empathize.
Even though my answer was not quite what you were hoping for, please understand that my priority was to provide you with the most honest information. With that in consideration, I hope that you found my answer useful. Please click the excellent feedback button so that I can receive credit for my efforts.
