Hi Rich, it is very difficult dealing with this disease and as others have said a prognosis is very difficult due to the very high amount of variables.
I feel for you but believe you will find a way through this. We all do in time.
You say your not scared, I am a lot of the time.
I am not hard but I try to be as positive as I can and don’t want this disease to define me, although a lot of the time it does.
As Kevin has said we just try to get on with our lives and enjoy each day.
I try to live my life normally but with an enhanced sense of those close to me and appreciation for what I have in my life.
All the platitudes said I fell like a pendulum swinging from one emotion to another.
I have my dark moments too when I think of my wife and three sons without me.
It is surprising that strength comes when you need it.
I am waiting on the results from a bone scan on 26//2 and an MRI 19/3, we spend a lot of time waiting on PSA results, scan results etc which is difficult.
I dread going to oncology for results.
But most days I am very active, do lots of different things and try to appreciate each day.
I really hope you feel better in yourself soon.
Best wishes, Ian.
