Great new on J’s PSA.

On a happier note, J's September PSA reading was <0.1

That is great news and haha! He is living life to the fullest, he deserves it after all of that

Very good news and a smile.

I gave up on Tadalafil but trying again after reading about your dad . So my thanks to him and yourself for posting  Thus far some success - I think being off stomach meds helps?

You know 15 years here and the board still inspires me  - irun and your dad to name two.

Really good news Lyn!

Crazy times and lots of posts to catch up on in the next couple of days but John's latest PSA is a beautiful <0.1 

I have already concluded that this is not the right year to give up smoking; as a lifelong teetotaller I have discovered gin, Dad is fine and a little hat lying on its side is a most wonderful thing. 

 

Happy new year everyone; stay safe x

Hi Lyn nice to hear your good news, Diesel here long time no see, my news not so good, nothing to do with prostate that went years ago, worse than that, I was diag. with small cell lung cancer last Feb stage 4 adv. But I'm doing ok, there is no cure, just treatment , I've had 6 chemos and 5 radiation's, so far shrunk a bit and stable, but I ache and tire easily, no pain. I'm having another scan this Sunday and seeing oncologist on 29th January for results, so fingers crossed, it's my birthday on 27 th Jan, so hoping no bad news. Christ Lynn I will be 76yrs young, never thought I would be so old, just don't know where all that time has gone. Hey ho, enough of me, hoping all the prostate clan are doing well and surviving as we have. Love to you all, your old Bezzie Diesel. ( Peter x ).  Ps, it was 7/8 years since I hadn't radical prostatectomy and it's been just great. x

Thanks everyone, particularly for the warnings on my late adolescence with gin!

Diesel, fab to hear from you but I am so sorry about the lung cancer diagnosis. You make sure you keep that mask on and stay well away from people who look like they don't wash their hands often enough. Stay in touch, old pal x

It's been a while since I updated this post. 2021 PSA results were

Jan <0.1

Feb 0.1

May 0.1

Aug 0.11

Nov <0.1

Next test is due in Feb but I expect it will just continue to bounce around the 0.1 mark. I tried to count back to see how the August result fits with his Covid vaccines but it doesn't seem to relate. As in previous years, the August reading is higher than the rest of the year so I can only assume it is to do with the annual 6 weeks of hard cycling, drinking red wine and eating French cheese 🤷‍♀️

Deisel, I suspect that you follow this thread and only log in when a new post is made. Can you let me know that you are okay?

Ray, how are you doing?

Good news for you and John.

You hinted recently that you were going for cancer tests yourself. How did that go, if you don’t mind me asking?

You don’t have to answer.

Best of luck to you both.

Cheers, John.

User
Posted 08 Jan 2022 at 16:43
Sorry Bollinge, delayed reaction!

Results were pre-cancerous but they would like to remove the suspect area anyway. Problem is they won't do it until I give up smoking 🙄

Thank you for asking - I knew you loved me really 🤣

Sorry to hear your news, Lyn.  Lots of love to you.  And anyway, the less money spent on cigarettes, the bigger the wine budget for France.

User
Posted 09 Jan 2022 at 13:32
That would be a valid point although I am tee-total - perhaps more money for cheese or beautiful shoes 😂

I am fine about it - had so many bits removed over the years, I am soon going to be like the million dollar man!

 Lyn, Shoes, a girl can always buy lovely shoes.. then cheese and a decent red wine. I gave up the fags about 20 years ago

Can’t you quit smoking and take up drinking as a quid pro quo?

I was once given a glass of dubonnet & lemonade in France and it went straight to my head; at one point I removed all clothing from the waist down and ran around the campsite shouting “sahg me here, John!” He was not impressed and I was banished to our tent to sober up :-(

Unfair really as, as a rugby wife, I have always been very tolerant of drunk men being very silly.

"Sagh me here" isn't that an Indian food with lots of spinach?

When I first met my new wife (3 years married still new?) She was tee total and quite innocent despite her 2 previous marriages. We discovered the primal delights associated with home made margarita and we haven't looked back since.

Booze is definitely preferable to fags!

We want to know why you don't drink ... and all you tell us is reason why you should drink.🤷

Hi Lyn, Only just caught up on this thread, hope you do manage to give up the fags, or lie and say you have stopped. As embarasing stories go the one you have posted beats anything  i could come up with. lol, anyway glad it was pre cancerous but still best to get sorted if you can.

Thank you Barbara - how are things with you?

Dave - ha ha ha ha! I never liked the taste of anything. Even in church, I take communion with a look of excruciating disgust! I can force myself to have a tiny G&T if with people who are offended by my sobriety but I don't like it at all.
