My brother (74) has always been a very fit man with a large appetite, but normal weight.
He rang me the other day to say he had a urinary tract infection and has been put on an antibiotic. When I rang to see how he was today, he said it was not better and he had been given a second course; and he has also been told to book a PSA blood test. He cannot get this appointment for another 2 weeks.
But he then started talking further about how he is and said he has to sit down to wee, as his bowels sometimes open unbidden at the same time. Also that he has lost weight and his appetite has reduced.
These seemed to be red flags to me and after I put the phone down I wondered if I should have asked him if he had told the doc about his other symptoms. I feel maybe I should ring him back and ask him whether he did, but do not want to alarm him.
I will sleep on it - but do feel a bit worried.
