Goodbye T1cN0M1b and hello LupronJim
Sonny3 has been on my case to change my Username to something he can spell, and we all know how persistent Sonny can be.
Try as I may, I could not convince Sonny that T1cN0M1b was my "stage" name.
There were several colorful discarded alternatives but they are best discussed at a GFMPH campfire in Roichester, not on a public forum.
Though the logistitcs to change one's username proved quite simple, I am hopeful to keep LupronJim username for 24 months and then change it to IHT-Jim when I go onto Intermittent Hormonal Therapy.
I am hopeful I do not have to change it to ProvengeJim, XtandiJim, ZytigaJim, Radium223Jim etc or whatever the drug du jour for hormonal resistant then is for a long time.
