My father is 94 and diagnosed with early stage bladder cancer.We moved in a couple of weeks ago(with our 6 month old baby) to help out.Now many people are telling us to move back out because of bio-hazards and contagions(for our baby's sake mostly).We have tried speaking to many health care professionals mostly getting the "brush-off".Others give statements varying wildly between,"Aw,don't worry" and "those fisrt 24 hours after treatment pose serious risk to your baby (urine of patient considered bio-hazard due to spread of Tuberculosis) and secondary side effects could be contagious".Are there doctors with no motive out there who can comment on this? OR are there already existing families of patients who have gone through this?IS this treatment even safe for a 94 year old ?We have 8 days until treatment begins...Thanks
