My uncle has had his shoulder replaced and has bad knees and is on medication for his joint pain but cannot resume taking it until the bleeding has stopped.
Thanks again for your help
With regard to my prostate biopsy experience, I can only speak about the bleeding that shows itself in the semen. Since I had no other type of bleeding, I can not comment on things like blood in the stool, bleeding from the rectum or blood in the urine. In my case, the blood in my semen was evident immediately after the biopsy procedure and it gradually showed less and less until it was gone in about 6 days.
You need to better explain the exact type of bleeding that he's having.
