Haven’t posted in a wee while but still keeping tabs on this worthwhile site from time to time and enjoying the good Posts from members and feeling deflated and sad at the not so good ones. Thought I’d just do a quick update on my own situation for anyone interested... When we arrived back from Spain in early March this year my breathing was extremely poor and I couldn’t walk 50 yards without having to stop and it got so bad I was eventually hospitalised at the end of April. I’d never had heart problems before but after being transferred from my local hospital to the excellent St Bartholomews in London, I was diagnosed with severe aorta valve damage and it was eventually decided that I should have a TAVR procedure where the clapped out aorta valve is replaced with a mechanical one. Unfortunately, whilst carrying out the surgery in late May, the femural artery was damaged and subsequently I still can’t walk very far because the blood flow to my right leg and foot is restricted and so cramps up causing a fair bit of pain. But enough of the bad news because since the procedure my breathing has been 100% better. The amazing outcome of all this is that I am now seeing Oncology, Cardiology, Urology and Vascular experts which obviously makes me a real professional in the hospital visit stakes. But I digress because what I’m also really delighted about is that after seeing my oncologist in late September my PSA reading is still considered as undetectable. It’s been a really difficult year for me but hopefully I’m finishing it with the best possible news.
