On the road to recovery

This should be my final update.

I saw my surgeon on Monday, about six weeks after surgery. We discussed the side effects I’ve been experiencing, and my progress. The side effects, bladder control and sexual function, are both currently manageable and improving. After giving my report, he determined that I was, “ahead of the curve” in recovering, and that I need to be patient and keep doing what I am doing. He took some blood for the PSA test that would tell if the little bit of Cancer that got out of the prostate, got away.

 

Diane sent me these nice flowers

Tuesday, Dana, from the doctor’s office called. She said the PSA was undetectable in my blood test, meaning I have no Cancer. She said I will need to see the doctor in four months, and asked would I like to make an appointment now? I said yes, and we made an appointment for September 12th. Then I said, “I’d like to hear it again.” She began to say September…… I said, “No, no, I want to hear the undetectable part again.”

Thank you, everyone, for your prayers and support during this time. It made a wonderful difference. God is good, and it’s nice to have friends. Men, don’t delay going to the doctor if you suspect you may need to.

Later,

Scott
