went for my 4th cancer check-up this morning, and I was pleasantly surprised to be told, for the 4th time, my PSA is below 0.1!
Also my next check-up will be 6 months time in November!
I'm on 2 water tablets to help me control my bladder, and they are slowly taking effect. I explained to the urologist, that I still get very tired, and he replied, that I would do, that I'm still recovering from my radiotherapy. I also told him, that since January of this year, I've taking up walking, so he was pleased with that, and he thinks I'm doing well. I just wish I could be doing better. So far, I can't do much more than 2 miles walking in 1 go.
I went to see my diabetic nurse yesterday, who quietly laid into me, saying I could be doing better with my diabetes. After my check-up in March, after talking to my GP, I felt like I was on cloud nine, as my results were better than Christmas time. But my nurse witch, made me feel like she dumped a wet rag on my head! She ain't NO Wiz!
I told her that because of my heart disease and cancer journey, I am finding life difficult - she ignored all that! I explained I've been walking since January, it seemed she didn't hear me properly, and seemed a bit sarcastic. I insisted to her that I am going to keep on walking and I'm hoping to fight my diabetes in this manner. She asked if GP had mentioned an injection, to replace 1 of my meds, I said no, I don't want it! I'm currently on 13 different tablets, that cover my 3 health conditions, plus I'm on Prostrap, my next injection in about 2 weeks.
During my cancer journey, my life hasn't been enjoyable. What I mean, is that I'm regularly tired, sometimes I get fatigue, also I suffer with feeling cold. Even now, I still go out with 3 or 4 layers, and on occasion I wear a small thin of gloves. My wife and I were on the beach last night, and the wind, in my mind, was perishing cold!
Does anyone else experience the same nonsense as I am? And how long must I put up with this crap? I'm no macho man, never will be and never have been. I've got no upper body strength since being diagnosed. Perhaps I'm being a little impatient?
