sorry for another long gap in updates, been rough for me most of this year
in October, was my 10th year with HW PC here. in November, was my 10th year post PC surgery, 9th year post salvage radiation, and 8th year post Urostomy surgery. still here.
saw my oncologist for 2nd visit of the year in october, PSA on the move again. 2 previous 6 month readings were at 23.xx, latest was 30.xx. considering i have have no other treatment since 2009, doctor thinks we will continue to watch and wait. he agrees i should be lighting up with scans, but still nothing showing up. feels its an unsual case, but said every case different.
my parkinson's is still the worse problem with me. another mostly "invisible" disease. lot more to PD than the obvious tremors. still stage III approaching stage IV. now having swallowing issues too, VA setting me for some help with that. balance issue major, have had several hard fall recently, yes, i am either with a cane or with a walker. never know which way i am going to fall down. some days, its like the entire world is tilted to the left by a few inches, weird.
hope everyone is having a good christmas or holiday if you prefer. i lurk here a few times a week, but seldom post, even this took a lot out of me.
