Thank you all for your reply and insight into the hormone treatment and what is available...
I have thought long and hard about this issue going on hormone treatment for 3 years means that once the specialist decide you can come off it your own testosterone will never come back!
Can you remember the man in Barnsley who couldn't live with a colostomy bag a couple of months ago who chose to die?
That's how I feel I've had a good life with my testosterone I love being a man and even for 3 years of just controlling the cancer isn't worth it for what I have to give up...It's ME my character my personality.
This harmone treatment does change you as a man your outlook etc etc...I spoke to one of my friends who's husband has been on hormone treatment for a long time..she says he isn't the same man she married he's become docile and has no drive it's him but not him it's only because she loves him that she stays...
She says he had drive and fire and brimstone always the man of the moment party animal alive! But know he just shuffles about the house scared to do anything that may cause a breakage of his bones...
These are her words "The fire has gone out within him"
Our testosterone is what makes us a man it gives us the length of our penis & testicles makes our frame solid & muscular or bones strong and without that one chemical we are not men....
I can truly understand 99% of the men wanting life but it's just not for me.Three years of chemicals then my testosterone never comes back and all that DAMAGE done to your body can never be undone!
It is truly a step too far in my eyes I am 57 strong slim fast my mind is sharp I love sports half marathons mountain biking judo karate etc etc
When I was younger I fought in martial arts competitions...run any distance from 100m to half marathon I love being a man a man's man my children love their mad dad who's impulsive active in all sports with them and I would give up far too much just to gain a couple of years!
Stage 3 cancer cannot be cured only controlled then the cancer gets use to the harmone and it starts to grow again and then once again your on the radiotherapy roundabout more chemicals then poss chemotherapy!
Cancer treatment hasn't moved on as such it's still blast with rays and as a last resort the chemical from the Witches cauldron! Chemotherapy
Me as I am now I'm sat in front of a fan cooling myself down! This nonsense is 24/7 none stop sweating like someone thrown a bucket of water over me....I'm walking around in shorts all day and still the hot flush comes on and I'm soaking wet!
I haven't slept properly for 6 months because of it and if I do fall asleep the whole bedding is soaking wet that's how much I'm sweating every day and night!
I don't want to give up my testosterone it's selfish but I'm prepared for death it holds no fear for me...I've always had strong faith and it's God just calling on me to come.....
Other men can and want to live a life without sex but at 57 there is still a lot of lead in my pencil!...I still have wet dreams in my 50s I still wake up with a morning wood!
I would loose all that as a man...for a Frankenstein medical treatment messing about with a man's testosterone like I'm some sort of cat or dog being de balled chemically!
We have all seen how a dog or cats character changes once they have their meat & two veg cut off? They loose that Va Va Voom and are docile!
That's what happens to a man on harmone treatment,they may not see it themselves but others notice that the spark that made you...YOU is gone and it will never come back even if you stop the harmone treatment. ...That's the TRUE facts...
A STEP TOO FAR FOR ME
