Keep on keeping on.
Living is much better than the alternative. Hang in there.
Thanks for sharing this. I admire your positive attitude. There’s a lot of power harnessed in your mind. I will pray for your continuing victory over this.
Wow, glad you’re better if at a cost!
Me old Mother survived six cancers, and after a few of them I asked her oncologist what to expect.
He said “if we don’t kill her with the treatment she should live”.
Dang, mortality is a bear and sometimes we wrestle...
Prayers for peace and strength sent. God bless.
This^^ and keep us posted.
Thanks for sharing your struggle and victories. Rooting for you!
Thanks for sharing!
Hang in there and take it one day at a time. None of us know how long we have. One day at a time is a formula that has worked for me for many, many years and I'm not quitting now. I was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer last October. I'm a half year into the hormone therapy that you are doing. I finished 6 1/2 weeks of radiation (proton therapy 5 days a week) 3 weeks ago and I'm finally feeling great again. No libido? After 27 years, the wife and I accept it. She just wants me around. Some fatigue later in the day? I'll take that too. My PSA at 0.01 is nearly undetectable. LIFE IS GOOD. I'm on the hormone therapy for another year and a half but... like I said, one day at a time does it. I rehearsed with my trio weekend before last and am looking forward to gigging again. Edit: Just wanted to add, with testosterone at zero I was hoping to be able to hit those high notes that have been out of reach. Sorry, no luck. Keep laughing, it's great medicine.
Onward and upward, my friend!
Hang in there. Lots of guys pulling for you. Stay strong. No reason you can’t make it. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers be well brother
There is a cultural joke I can make but I won't. It is NOT at the OP's or Chicago Matts expense but rather about the crazy world we live in.
Cancer (and heart disease) are so terrible and I really wish they could find a cure for cancer. Sometimes I think about how they haven't found a cure and that leads me to think of reasons and other certain things and it just near makes me mad-ish.
Whatever you're doing keep it up, brother. I also had cancer, and I feel for anyone with the diagnosis.
I appreciate any time the C word gets brought up around here. It's all I've thought about for the last 2 yrs. Officially diagnosed Dec 24th '19. Caught early and monitored, but the time came to do something. March 30th was that day. I'm recovering as we speak from a prostatectomy.
One thing I've come to understand is theres no rhyme or reason to it. I know terminal brain patients that are thriving after almost 20yrs.
My Onc had the Lupron discussion with me. That gives me the chills thinking about it. My Uro thinks I'll be good given my health & age.
I'm thinking of you all that are willing to share. Thank you.
