Here's a question for you fellow G9 guys:
I've had quite a year. Tried to work through most of it but fatigue from chemo, no Testosterone, and low blood's have kept me on a part time schedule. Just as I am gaining strength from my RP in January, we are planning 7 weeks of radiation.
Given that I'm not 100% going into this, what are chances that I'll have energy for full time work during radiation? I'll need to drive 45 minutes to an hour each way for the radiation treatments.
a round or two of golf (gotta keep my priorities in order)? I am trying to plan a golf get away but have no idea how I'll feel after 7 weeks of radiation.
I admire you guys. You give me strength & hope. I hope my story can do the same for some of you.
Also, based on pathology report, I should be moved up to the 5+4 group. It's hard to call that an upgrade but I'm proud to carry the torch.
