I'm Gleeson 4:5 as well. I've had RP, RT and HT. The RP was fairly straight forward, the HT and RT was hard work (for me). I know what you mean about the sports life - I'm a compulsive rock climber, and the last year has been hard work. All treatment now finished, and I'm writing this hurting all over due to spending the weekend climbing. It's a good hurt! Do I regret having the RT? No, I was on a curative path. Time will tell if it worked or not, but so far it's worthwhile. And hasn't stopped me from carrying on with sports. We're all different, my thinking was go for all the treatment and hope for a cure. Aged 54 with a 10yr old child, it was worth the punt. Any lasting hindrances to a sporting life I think I can put down to the RP at the moment.
