A close friend has been leaning on me a bit about
Pca, and is hounding me to do more sooner.
Short story - a male relative had an open surgery, followed by RT, and had an "undetectable" PSA ever since. Period, up to the last day. He went to his GP after walking the dog, and having doubled up in gut pain part way through the morning routine. He was eight years out from treatment, and was not even thinking Pca. "Test" went to "scan" went to "CT". He had "spots" on his liver and kidney. A biopsy on one of the organs (it was said which, but I missed it) came back positive for Pca. He was given a year if he did nothing, maybe a few months more with chemo. He died five weeks later, with an "undetectable" PSA during that time.
Needless to say, I have some folks checking on me every morning.
What am I trying to say? They taught me to sleep with one eye open in some warfare schools I won't discuss. The lesson is real in more situations than my instructors could have imagined.
