I hope my news today will give hope and encouragement to all those facing an uncertain future especially for those recently diagnosed with PCa.
Two years to almost to the day (01 April, 2015) I was diagnosed with Locally Advanced T3a PCa.
Today, I was told by my Specialist Nurse at my routine 6 monthly appointment, that my PSA remains undetectable and they are very confident that the treatment has been a success, and I can also be confident about being cured. I am now being discharged back to my GP with PSA test going forward at 12 monthly intervals.
Along with everyone else, I know that we are all unlucky to have this shocking disease. Personally I feel incredibly lucky that I appear to be pulling through this relatively unscathed. I have no continence issues, and now I am able to get very usable erections without any meds!
The psychological impact has been quite cathartic. I now know what is really important to me, I'm far less judgmental and I think it has bizarrely made me a much happier and hopefully better person.
I'm not leaving this forum, but I do want to thank everyone for their support during this time, you are all amazing!
