I am British (Scottish actually) and had testicular cancer 38 years ago at the age of 22years. In those days surgery and radiation treatment was radical, but nevertheless life saving. Not knowing good from bad, the radiation treatment which I received spent twenty years or so slowly damaging my pelvic nerve system. The result is that I am now 60 years of age, disabled in that I cannot walk without crutches for more than 15 feet. However, the positive of this message is that a positive outlook is a strong tool to have in the box and that being severely disabled is 100% better than the alternative.
Good luck to all my fellow survivors.
