Hi Laura -
I’m praying for you. I’ve been diagnosed w Gleason 9 and am not at all calmly waiting for my bone scans on June 2
I also want to say sorry for hijacking this thread. I am a bit new and somehow thought I was commenting on a thread I’d started.
The advice from the people on this site - stay calm - is good, though I find it hard to comply due to agonizingly long waits between important information milestones
Eg, approximately 28 days from my second high PSA to biopsy, 10 days for biopsy results, and then scans 14 days after biopsy results
It turns out that the efficiency-addicted country one ocean to your west loves a good bureaucratic delay now and again
Get outside in the glorious May weather. Meet friends. Sort that junk drawer in the kitchen. Watch mindless TV.
My Dad got very ill very suddenly in 2001 (stroke/dementia) and overnight lost his gregarious Irish personality
until my shocking PSA result, it was the toughest thing I went through
My advice from that experience - lean a bit on your most empathetic friends Call them Arrange a night out with your funniest friend(s)
That’s what friends are for
