All the best Joe. The robotic assisted surgery is brilliant as it requires smaller incisions and less muscle damage. Recovery is usually much quicker too. I hope all the other tests are clear and you can concentrate on recovery. I'm a fellow traveler.So been quiet lately because been so busy. I found out this fall I have stage 4 Prostate cancer. between work meds and dr appointments ive been feeling tired all the time so I goto work when I can and then come home and sit around falling asleep in chair.
I start vacation today and monday go back to the dr. they are going to do 12 more biopsies see how things are going. the good news is prostate cancer is like 100% curable and at stage 4 its 85-100%. i dont have an aggressive type so dr says nothing for me to worry abt but i just feel weak from treatments. there is a possibility i wont need to have proistrate removed as so far treatments seem to be working. it all depends on results of mondays biopsies what happens next.
Just thought let ppl know why I dissapeared for a while but i do try to follow builds when I can
Mate. I'm out of action with diarrhea at the moment. We should get together.well guys they finally got to operate on me thursday. everything went well and just waiting to see if tests on lymph nnodes outside the prostate are clean and if they are I am cancer free. I came home yesterday about noon and am not doing too bad.
