Hi,

They say moving house is one of the most stressful things you can do and in recent weeks it has turned out that way. 

We were two weeks away from exchanging contracts on our house sale and our buyer has pulled out.

Feeling tired of the whole process now.

Steve

Our daughter bought her first house earlier this year, what a nightmare. Hope you get another buyer quickly, will the delay affect the property you are moving to ?

Take care, thanks Chris.

Hi, 

Fortunately, at the moment, the vendors of the bungalow are prepared to wait but I'm not sure how long they will.

We just want to get the whole process over with.  I feel very tired. My next appointment with the Oncologist is a week on Tuesday so the worry about that will take my mind off the house sale.

That’s a real pain in the neck, I’m so sorry, what a stressful process it all is. Hope you get another buyer quickly.

Thanks for your replies, especially the last one.  I am really grateful for you to have time to put a message on my posts when you're facing such a difficult time.  My thoughts are very much with you at this time and pray that John will be as comfortable as possible, everyone's love is with you.

Hi, 

In the midst of depressive and stressful times, wonderful things can sometimes happen.  We have just become grandparents again!

A beautiful baby boy arrived to my son and his wife yesterday.  We now have four grandchildren, all boys!

Can't wait to see him later today. 

This is what really matters in life, family.

I have come to terms with my cancer and what the future holds for me but the sadness I feel sometimes is the realisation that at some point, I will have to leave them. 

Steve

Hi, 

It's that time again.  Later today I see my Oncologist to find out my latest PSA results at my four month check up.

The last results, two months ago, showed a fall from 2.6 to 2.3 so I'm keeping my fingers crossed it's stayed around that figure.

Hi, 

Just seen the Oncologist, unfortunately my PSA has risen from 2.3 in July to 3.2 now.

Feeling a bit disappointed.

Super news on the new grandson - congratulations to you all. On the PSA front, I worry that you are not proactive enough - did you ask for a testosterone test to see whether the HT is working correctly? Have you checked that the nurse is definitely giving you the 3 month dose rather than the 1 month dose (call me a cynic but as you well know, it has happened on here in the past) and is storing it correctly and injecting it into the correct place?

What is the onco's plan?

Sorry to hear about the rise. Great news about the grand child.

Thanks Chris

Thanks Chris. 

Thanks Lynn, when my testosterone was checked back in late May it was 0.4 which was ok.  I always collect my Zoladex to take to the surgery so I always know that it the three month dose (10.8mg). 

My oncologist said my PSA has risen at the rate she expected it to.  Her plan for me is to get the maximum use out of Zoladex before she has to add Bicalutamide.
