Well here it is a few weeks later and now have all those pretty books about choices
Which decision to make or what do I like doing the most bedroom activities or getting old then losing.
Young with a chance
Old and forgotten

And I found psych central once again
And if anyone has been following this story or" thread"
You should know if you thought a t3 and MRI cat scans and void clinics were bad to get ready for the sarcastic ray of sunshine.

Now Jan '18 and the weeks before I get the surgeons booking
But now a t7
Radiation ruled out so the only option left. getting it removed.

Already have most of the side-effects
Sorry if I never got back or replied to anyone

Mentally this has drained me
Forgetting things being just lost

My journey continues

I just read this entire thread. I'm sorry I've not been able to follow your journey from its start, but really respect you for putting your feelings & thoughts here. I may sound like an arse for writing this, but your writings have probably helped a lot of people who might be facing physical adversity. It did me. This is nothing compared to what you're going through, but I was just diagnosed with glaucoma. It would be easy to feel sorry for myself, but your writings really helped me - your facing adversity & being able to deal with it. I'm sorry about your concernes about not being able to perform anymore but, believe me, you're more than a "man" for sharing your journey here. Thanks.

Thank you emgreen.
Sometimes just writing how the feelings you have down come out in an informative or rational fashion. other times it may just be ramblings of a scared person trying to make it through life.
sometimes we don't put half the stuff out there as well.

And sometimes we don't deal with it at all and those are the missing parts

So here I still sit in 2018.
5 years down the track and going back to the start of this thread I just want to thank all those that took the time to comment or the contribution of their stories.
I can see the pattern that emerged over time that has to lead to this point in time. Sorry about all the typos but you miss those sorts of things when you are on a roll and the words come out faster than the eye can see.
(Words from an uneducated hand)

So now as stress and anxiety take over for the next few weeks I thought I would just review some of my rambles to find the pattern the doctors don't worry telling you about in the beginning or you just don't want to hear.
All the pain in the pelvis and the kidney infection didn't really help or the up and down of the PSA and then the up.
The biopsy certainly didn't help anything but confirm what everyone knew.
The good news is I have scored a professor to do the surgery.

So now I wait for the date and the paperwork to go through.
And try and see the bits on here I can put together to calm my hands and soul till then

Thanks for reading .
