I feel kind of bad since so many wonderful people on this site, which I just discovered, have so much worse conditions to deal with than I. Cancer of any kind is so devastating, so lonely. I have metastatic prostate cancer spread to pelvis, spine, ribs, etc., diagnosed in June but probably have had it for a long time. Kept putting off seeing the doctor until ER doc had to put in a catheter since I was totally blocked. Have had one in place for more than 5 months now, driving me nuts.
New: I have had severe back and hip pain last few weeks. Even Percocet doesn't help much. Guess cancer is spreading. I am to get a full bone scan Thursday 10-23, will see what the prospects are after that.
Since catheter has stayed put for more than five months,and hormone therapy is not heping much, I am to have turp and orciectomy on 10-31, depending on scan results. And my mental health counseling has gotten screwed up at least for a while, my HR folks at work are trying to straighten tha ou for me.
I am sorry but I think I will give up this site even tho you folks are so nice despite your troubles. An easy final solution seems to be more of a better option to me than before. And in the long run it does not matter anyway. 100 years from now no one will care whatsoever about some ancestor.
Love to you all, and I truly hope researchers will find cures for this stupid disease. I love you guys and hope for the very best results for all of you.
