I finally got the full Story of my Cancer out of my system this past week. If you want to read it here is the link: https://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=35&m=1839288
It's long and full of detail but not everyone wants to read all that stuff.
In this short post I want to tell you about the Sexiest Stethoscope in the West.
My Radiation Ongologist had serveral PA's. What is a PA? (Physician Assistant)
Around the first year after my mopup radiation and before I had recovered full sexual function, I meet his senior PA. I went to that appointment with a few questions because I had finally worked up the courage to request copies of all medical records and sat down to read them before this consult. That reading generated my questions.
I am a carpenter. What do I know of Cancer, Pathology Reports and Hospital Bills. I will tell you now, nothing. Nada, Zilch, Zippo. Not even on the radar.
During my reading I came across a 4 page report of the details as I presented to this Ongologist written by a person who's name I could not recognize.
The. Dr. was elsewere that day and his PA came into the room. As I reported my present condition I looked at her feet. Bare with nice ankles and beautiful toes. Low open toed shoe black with medium heel that made her calf look delicious. What is that. It is a foot I want to get closer too with my face.
She asked if I had any questions today and I held up the report in question and asked who had written it. She looked and said, "I did Jim, Why?".
"I have been to high school, college, the Army and now had Cancer. I am 61 years old and I have been tested, prodded and poked by the best of them and then read the reports. That without a doubt is the finest report I have ever read. Good Job."
She smiled and then did it. She pulled out her Stethoscope and asked if she could listen to my heart and lungs.
Well I don't know where she kept that thing but it sure was warm and her touch was that of a angel. I mean her touch was exciting, It made my heart skip. It made my breath short.
It was sexual to me. In all of the prodding I had ever received nothing smilar had ever occured.
It gave me hope that my sexual self would heal also. I went home and pumped myself up for practice to get the blood flowing and looked at the clock.
I plotted when to take a Levitra to be ready when the wife got home. I jumped her when she walked in the door.
"What brought this on?" "A pair of shoes and the Sexiest Stethoscope in the West."
That is always on our minds. Men You gotta love'em.
Age 60 when presented to GP on 3 Aug. 2004 with elevated PSA of 13.8.
Referred to Urologist. Biopsy and bone scan in Oct 04.
Pathology report in Nov 04. Initial Results are T2cNoMo carcinoma of prostate gland.
Had a RRP on 14 Feb 2005. Boy talk about irony look at that date again.
Dr. called 3 days after surgery. I want you both in my office tomorrow morning, we must talk now.
"I wish to apologize because I misdiagnosed your condition.
Biopsy of your organ says Staging is T3bNoMo. Please accept my apology."
At that moment I fell in love with my Dr. and have never changed my mind.
Followup radiation of the prostate bed started early June 05 and ran 42 sessions.
All PSA checkups to date, 5 1/2 yrs, are undetectable.
