Hi just joined today and hoping for a bit of info and support as I begin this journey.
A bit of background first
Was diagnosed with rectal cancer in 2017 (stage 3d)and have been through various treatments surgeries/chemo/radio.As of 2021 I,m still clear but still on the 5 year surveillance pathway.
However today I,ve just been diagnosed with PC with spread to my right leg.Have had a bone scan and mMri scan with further tests acoming.Have been started on hormone therapy immediately.
Was only discovered after i went to the GP to be treated for a water infection a few weeks ago and blood tests came back later with a Psa reading of 107 !
So there you go...a double whammy of cancers(although it is still to be totally confirmed that the PC is not mets from the rectal cancer)
They reckon every 1 in 2 person will get cancer during their lifetime ..I reckon i,m getting someone's share here! plus if I was religious and believed in that sort of thing ,that i must have been a bad soul in a previous life.
