I wouldn't have remembered this if I didn't respond to different post, but it was 4 years ago today that I learned my PSA was rising rapidly after surgery....
8/9/09 - Surgery
10/12/09 - PSA 4.49
11/25/09 - PSA 6.94
4 years ago today I was still trying to understand how cancer would change my life and I asked the doc in an almost casual manner if this meant we should discuss "how much time"....I didn't know what to ask/say after being told 6.94 up from 4.49 only 3 months after surgery so I asked the "time" question....I was told very matter of frankly that it was unlikely I would live 5 years...
It's one of the many many anniversaries in my Prostate Cancer history that I pay no attention to...but I wanted to share this because that one little piece of info...his prediction changed me forever.
This isn't about
the doc telling me.... this is about
how I let it change me....my kids were 7 and 8 at the time.
Many aspects of my life would better if I had spent more time living and less time planning....It's another reminder to make the most out of being alive....on this 4 year anniversary, knowing I wasted many days thinking of my end will only get worse if I look back again someday and realize I kept doing it....I want to live and not think about
"time" anymore...right now is what matters most...peace to all of you...
