Subject: OT: Prostate Update
How's that for alliteration? :)
Anyhow, results of my scan show I may have cancer. May have. If so, it's at such an early stage that there's nothing to worry myself over. Had a biopsy this morning - which wasn't the most fun ever - to confirm the presence or absence of any cancerous tissue.
I am, however, going to need surgery no matter what, because my prostate is causing quite an obstruction. I suppose the good news on that score is, if there's any cancer they can kill two birds with one stone.
Further tests to follow, because there's also blood in my urine, which as we all know, shouldn't be there.
Should know more in a couple of weeks.Coppula eam se non posit acceptera jocularum.
Thinking of you in my prayers.

Thank you, everyone. I'm more annoyed with the situation than anything else; It's all going to be fine, everything will be under control and I'm not in the least worried. What really hacks me off is, we have a lot of other stuff to deal with, Claire isn't in the best of health herself and me being out of action for a while is only going to add to her burden.
Still, at least I'll be up and around after a while, so there's that, at least. Better being above ground than below.Coppula eam se non posit acceptera jocularum.
If it's any consolation my friend, my husband had bladder cancer that spread to his prostate and was stage four, had chemo (and took it like a champ), had surgery and was back to work in 6 months. That was nearly 5 years ago now and he's still kicking. Doc said he could live for another 40 years. LOL.
Keep that positive attitude - it makes all the difference :) I'll keep you in my prayers.
Best wishes Sam. These boards wouldn't be the same without you. I pray we never have to find that out.
Thanks, mate. Latest news is, I go for a bladder biopsy next Monday. Having had one before, I can confirm they aren't the most fun way to spend a morning and the view inside my bladder is dead boring. No fish or submarines, no scuba divers or coral reefs. Which is, I guess, a good thing but not very interesting to look at.Coppula eam se non posit acceptera jocularum.
My dad had prostate cancer just over twenty years ago. He's 85 now and still doing okay.
That's great to know. A doctor once said, if you had to pick one, prostate cancer would be the one to go for. I reckon you lot won't be getting rid of me any time soon.
Mind you, I could get run over by a bus but there you go.Coppula eam se non posit acceptera jocularum.
It was a pretty funny moment in the movie. He was chasing down leads trying to find the guy who created him so he could fix him. He found one guy at a hockey rink, and had injured him so that the guy was dragging himself across the ice, bleeding. He was several meters behind him on the Zamboni, screaming at him to tell where the guy was or "you'll get death by Zamboni... in 5 minutes!" Paraphrasing.
Next up, kidney examination via ultrasound. At least it's not invasive.
I've had one done every year since I had a Kidney Stone back the end of 2009, and it's very easy, and non-invasive.
Oh, and good to hear the Bladder past inspection.
OK . . . Where's my chocolate?
