A Difficult Post.

No Prom trip today.




A shame as the weather was lovely.

Instead I had my lovely friend and fellow artist visit and wait with me for the DP to return from ARI and his discussion regarding his Prostate Biopsy.

He has non aggressive Prostate Cancer.  Various options.  It was agreed the best way forward was regular blood tests.  Next year another MRI scan and biopsy.  He is fine with it all and  looking into life style changes to help.  Now the dawn is more accessible he will be patrolling again.

Life goes on.

My Sister in law's husband has the same thing and is going along fine. Hope that helps to reassure you.

I'm sorry to hear this and hope that your husband will go on OK. Bet you both feel like the stuffing's been knocked out of you though. ((HUGS))

I guess it is better to know than not know. Sounds like the prognosis is quite favourable.

"Non aggressive" are the words to keep in your mind. It isn't going anywhere, it sits there quietly permitting a normal life to be led.

My father in law had this and lived a perfectly normal life doing the things he had always done for the following 28 years. He eventually died from a heart attack which wasn't connected.

So sorry to hear this Jill - I too have known people with the same condition and it is a very slow progression. Hope you will feel brighter tomorrow you have been through such a lot recently. My thoughts are with you both - sending blogger hugs xx

This is one of those cancers that men live with for years, so don't worry. (easy for me to say I know)

Sending hugs and an offer for a virtual cup of tea/gin and tonic/glass of red wine xx

My Dad had that and took the "wait and see" course. The Doctor told him "Many men die WITH this and not OF this." Which is exactly what happened - he died of a stroke more than a decade later. The cancer never did a thing.

Sending you a hug, knowing how difficult it will have been to take on board. Gerard has monthly blood tests and does well. Take care.

I have a friend who has had it for many years - hope you can both come to terms with it and enjoy life to the full.

Glad it's the non-aggressive type. As you say, life goes on - and you're both ready to make the most of it. Love, prayers and hugs for you both. x

It is better to know about it and deal with it. All my best wishes to the life ahead. I know people who have the same condition and they have been living a perfect life through out. This has been diagnosed early and that is quite lucky.
