Just passed my eight year anniversary with stage 4, and I feel better now than at any time since my Dx. And, there are reasons for this.
1) Two Uro's agreed I had St. 4, with Lymph Node involvement. Nope, just St. 4. Two points in my Biopsy Report conflict with each other. One statement says, "?Possible Lymph Node Involvement", the other says "Possible Perinueral Invasion". Nope, Nope.
2) Dx'd with a bladder blockage, but not told or treated for it. Three years later, I was able to pee standing up again. It was a painfully long time.
3) Dx'd with tension headaches, caused by depression, due to the stress of having PCa. Nope, Sinusitis. Found during a dose of Amoxicillin, for a tooth infection. Another five years.
4) No, there can't be more.
Now, I'm going to have to fight my way back to some semblance of what I once was. But, FFS, I feel a whole lot better today than I have in a long, long, time.
