Thanks for the kind words. I appreciate them. I do need to get that separation of time away from the disease I think.
One last update on the main issue before I close down this topic.
I had a chat with the very kind and helpful rad onco specialist nurse just now and she was very good at helping me ease my worries.
She said that the pathologist who did my prostate is know for getting interested and working late over anything out of the ordinary and flagging it up. That did not happen which is good.
She also said that anything small cell or signet ring related would have been called out.
I had one larger 4+3 and one smaller 3+3 tumour.
She said she would email me the path report. The fact that she is doing this when she knows I am a worrier is probably also a good sign :)
There was some confusion over the relative volume - the GP letter said 3% and the path report said (I think nearer 10%).
She did admit that she had never come across mucinius but had looked up the same research as me and could see where I was coming from with the more recent better news. She had come across signet ring patients and they had all had their risk factors made clear to them up front. I did not have that.
She said basically I have to see what happens. I think from this I can assume that I am in the same boat as everyone else in terms of my diagnosis.
What this means is that I am going to try put this aside and take the advice of the kind peeps who just posted and start looking at the positive things in life.
Thanks all for your patience with my wobbles.
