‘Emotionally, I am drained:’ Winnipeg man’s cancer surgery cancelled at last minute – CTV

Dec. 20, 2022

A Winnipeg man who waited months for prostate cancer surgery is now left to wait even longer.

David Gaboury told CTV News he went in for his prostatectomy, a procedure where the prostate is either partially or entirely removed, on Friday, December 16, 2022, only to have it cancelled at the very last second. He said that to say he is disappointed is an understatement.

“Emotionally I am drained by it, there’s no other way to describe it,” Gaboury said.

Gaboury was diagnosed with prostate cancer six months ago. He said the cancer was caught very early, but his doctor told him he would need surgery to treat it. In October, he was given his surgery date of Dec. 16 and Gaboury had been preparing for the day ever since.

He said he went to Grace Hospital for the procedure a few hours before the scheduled start time, preparations started, and he was told he would be given an IV.
