Re: Prostate Cancer
What a few months. The last PSA levels showed a slight increase but nothing to worry about. We will review next month.
Have cut out a lot of the tablets that I was on and feel a lot better. Still doing my two hormones though.
One of the big things to come out of this journey so far is that a doctors judgment is not necesarily accurate and use of words can be misleading
I have learned that the word terminal should be replaced with the more accurate wording of uncurable. Terminal from the old school means a short time to live. I went down that roller coaster ride and although I know there is no cure, I am not ready to fall off the perch just yet. I believe I have years and not months as first thought. Could be wrong but I feel the best i have in a long time.
The only issue I have had of late is that my blood sugar levels went through the roof while on the steroids and it made me very tired. While I weaned myself off the steriods it too was a major effort with my diabeties specialist to help return to somewhere near normal. I am nearly there after a month. (I am type 1).
I believe with a lot of positive thoughts and good support, the journey can be a ot easier for everyone. Our cancer society provided counsellor is also a great help.
