Hi everyone, well we had a good time in Sydney, needed the break, had a blood test on Tuesday, doc rang me today and said it was still 0.5, so off to radiation onocologist on 31st. My urologist said not to worry, there is possibly "one cell that has escaped, and the radiation will fix it 100 %" . So I am optomistic that after the 6 weeks of radtherapy, my psa will decrease, in the meantime I will carry on my life as normal, and plan another holiday in late January, I am back playing competition lawn bowls which I enjoy, but finding a bit of soreness in the pubic bone area, when I play, but maybe i have not healed completely yet?
Regards Mal.
