Greetings, some of you may remember me, but I'm not a frequent poster. I've been in the PC business since 2007, having fought it with radiation, surgery, ADT, and currently in a clinical trial for nanoparticle therapy.
I've been at the therapy for 3 months with little to no side effects. Unfortunately, now I'm experiencing some discomfort from neuropathy in my fingers. This is a side effect that's not surprising, but a bit tough.
Now, to the point of my post, I want to share some words from my general physician that I heard today. I don't seek your comment or endorsement, and if you don't believe this, that's ok too.
My doctor said to me, in response to my fighting spirit, the following, "You know, I started off in oncology and practiced oncology for 5 years before moving to general medicine. Now I have a career experience of 45 years and I’ve seen one thing that’s been consistent and it has been proven without fail. That is, the man who fights will not die of his disease; the man who gives up, does.”
Know well that this steeled my resolve to fight even harder. I hope that some of you may gain comfort and hope from my doctor's experience and wisdom.
Thank you, John
