Just checking in- I have been lurking in the shadows popping in and out just reading posts and just wanted to say hi to everyone. I am coming up on 15 months post treatment and have learned to live with the side effects. I am back to my normal weight. Back in the rat race fully. Biggest side effects remain dry mouth especially at night, taste is still not right yet' hearing is really bad and the tingling In My feet. But I refuse to give up- working 70- 80 hours a week - hitting gym- and even manage to help teach at a non for profit martial art dojo. My co worker who was diagnosed with prostate cancer that spread had his operation and is doing fantastic. He will not need chemo or radiation- or at least that is what they are saying now- I guess in a few months after the pet scan we will know for sure. Thanks for the prayers for him. Keep strong all my fellow survivors/ warriors, and keep battling. It's good to be alive - even if life is different than it use to be.
