The dreadful Diagnosis and MRI result "anniversary" date, came and went last week. I try not to look back and remember, no reason to do that, can't change it, but it is ever present. That day I was told "You have a very serious case of Prostate Cancer. Metastasized, with 4 bone mets, PSA 71 with Gleason score of 4+3, core samples up to 80% involved."
It's not a week I really celebrate, cant celebrate that diagnosis, but maybe I should. Because I am celebrating life everyday, 5 years plus into remission, the kind that all of us with Advanced PC always dream of. I have left that initial Urologist's prognosis in the dust. I have been very fortunate, but I have lost friends that have not been as fortunate.
Weeks like this make me think of where I've been, but more importantly, where I am going. So great to have found this site, and all the posters(and posers) who keep it real.
I understand the statement that cancer was the best thing to happen to me, insofar as the focus it has brought to my life,and being able to separate and recognize what is really important. My Faith, my family, my friends, which I consider all of you!
Special thoughts to Rockyfords, you are definitely one of my heroes! Love you Brother, Love you all, Keep the faith!
