Well, crap. I got my retest results this morning and it came back with the same result. 0.1. I'm trying to get an appointment with the Urologist sooner than 8/12 as scheduled. I have a bad feeling about this. 😳
I understand that Bololidat (and possibly I) may be outliers on this. It's something alot of may/will face at some point (especially with adverse paths).
So I'm just wondering, in the cheap seats, what I might do if ever found in your shoes rcroller. And I believe
I know what my decision is...already.
Losing a < sign isn't going.to send me running.to the gamma machines. I'm going to want to see a pattern. (A solid pattern...maybe more than one or two upticks). I'm gonna.wanna.know that cancer is growing inside of my body rather than just "sitting there" ... detectable. I know of the studies. (And a sincere thank you to TA for 'em!).
I don't know why. Maybe I just live in denial. Maybe I believe I know better than the doctors. Maybe i now believe (erronerously) that the treatment can be worse than rhe disease. Who knows. And i wont say I won't consult (I will). But I've already told my uro of my thinking on this topic and he's absolutely NOT a fan of my thinking. (And i may not be either if or when it ever occurs).
But, for better or worse, this is my current thinking.
It sounds like you've got a plan in place (a.good one at that...get the HECK outta Hicksville for this!). It sounds like you're on top of it either way. And having plans in place is never a bad idea..
whether it's cancer or when to eat...life belongs to the planners.
I just want you to know I'm with you 100% no matter what Bob. There's no room for.judgements in this line of.work..
(...and fwiw...I'm not.reading judgement from Bolo. I'm reading sincere opinion. But...as he states...it don't matter what people think. All that matters is what you think. Again, good luck with this. It's gotta be big on your mind. It would anyone's).
