Age 61, Dx at 57, Dx Stage 4 at 60.
at least my oncologist has a "room with a view"....looking out onto a lake and big fountain. Had to do a "Selfie" to commemorate the occasion. Time for another PSA and another shot of "Castration"/Lupron. I have an issue and have to get the shot in my arm instead of my butt....and BOY does that hurt after a few minutes and it lasts for days. Feel like I've been punched there by Superman. I just finished Chemo at end of January and was hoping that I would be put on a Schedule of visiting the doctor every 3 months when I get my Lupron...but, alas, because my cancer is classified as "moderately aggressive"~~I think that's the term they used...I have to go in every 6 weeks. Life is beautiful, but these visits and these treatments....are hard to see as a blessing! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! ~~John.
p.s. my mantra to people all my life was "get up". meaning don't sit around...keep moving...and you'll be healthier and happier....It is actually MORE IMPORTANT now...I try to keep moving ! ! !
