I hope everyone had a nice Christmas.
I've just entered the Reading Half Marathon, due to take place in March, to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK. It will give me something to focus on apart from my PCa.
As some of you know, I "ran" last year's race. This year I hope to be better prepared as last time I was still suffering the effects of my hormone therapy. That is definitely out of my system now and hopefully will help me to do a better time.
This could be my last chance to be in this position as two days after the race, I'm due to see the oncologist to discuss my rise in PSA. My recent test revealed a larger than expected rise to 2 and if the next test in March shows the figures are still rising at the same rate, she could put me on hormone therapy again. I'm not looking forward to this possibility as it will mean that this will be for life as the radiotherapy I had, will have failed.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I've been through enough.
