We who watch our Prostate Specific Antigen

And still wish to identify as masculine

Should stay away from any female hormone

To keep our body’s testosterone.

Good Luck, Good Health and Good Humor.

Still on the menu however:

Rocky Mountain oysters, or meat balls, also known as prairie oysters in Canada (French: animelles), is a dish made of bull testicles. The organs are often deep-fried after being skinned, coated in flour, pepper and salt, and sometimes pounded flat. This delicacy is most often served as an appetizer.

My balls have been trying to crawl out of my sack and back into my body since a few weeks after my first Eligard shot. They keep saying "please mister, let us in, we don't want to be hanging around outside anymore".

It's so annoying and I can only whine about it here. Thanks for listening.

I hear ya.... If you let them in... you'll miss the fun of accidently sitting on them once in a while..... I don't mind the whining I was married to my ex-wife for 10 years...

<10 total T for going on 7 years. What's T after all when there's so much of life to be lived!

Keep on truckin'!

You've got that right! My T is 10 and I don't give a rat's arse! That sh*t did nothing but get me into trouble and interfere with the things that really matter in life like 'true' friends and God's beautiful creatures, e.g.🌵🌸! Without it I would probably still be happily married.

"We who watch our Prostate Specific Antigen

I think that is very very bad very advice for anyone with prostate cancer. First line treatment is Androgen Deprivation Therapy (ADT) and Vivelle estrogen patches substantially reduce the ADT side effects and apparently also acts as an adjuvant improving the effectiveness of ADT.

Vivelle estrogen patches are a win/win. There is no good reason not to take them while undergoing ADT (though I would make sure to accompany them with a daily aspirin and 4G of daily fish oil)

I wonder why my urologist didn't prescribe a patch like that. Maybe no clinical trial to prove their effectiveness? He seems to be by-the-book kind of doctor.

We should dream! There are rare cases where men stay in remission even with normal T levels. It's not fantasy, just an audacious goal. Dream big I say!

I've been to the Devil's workshop I used to be an apprentist hey! Maybe that's why I now have no balls and can still joke about it. The Devil made me do it. All joking aside Brothers ADT is a killer of many things but it is keeping me alive at least for now . I'm going on 20 months now. Never give up never surrender. Leo

You're much too kind... I'm as sharp as a doorknob...I'm glad I make you laugh... Making people laugh makes me laugh... When I first was diagnosed with Pca I looked up everything that I could about it. It took up all my time and was taking me away from living. So I decided to become an ostrich and stick my head in the sand and let my M.O.worry about it since he gets paid to do so. I was fortunate to get one of the best M.O.s to take care of me. Since laughter was always my hobby I decided to share some here in this forum. Some guys like it some guys do not.

When I was getting my "bed" radiated (39 sessions), a fellow patient approached me and said "you're the happiest guy I know who has cancer." My reply was "i'm sorry, but nobody told me to cry". So here's one;

A man walks into a library and asks "for a book on how to commit suicide".

The Librarian said "fuck off, you won't bring it back"

That's why every morning I give the guy in the mirror a big grin and say "Lets go see what the Land of OZ has for us today." The guy usually grins back and were on our way. Day by day we fight the beast, have fun and enjoy life. Whining, complaining , worrying only drags us down; it takes some practice and fortitude but being positive, laughing and loving is, in my opinion the secret to enjoying the days I have left here in OZ.🤠🍸🍸

It’s a topic with which I am annoyed

It’s all testosterone and Freud

I sit here and glower

About my lack of computing power

What’s the good of being an ADT droid?

My iambic is not so good anymore

And quoth the brothers "nevermore"

And Mr. Johnson is so idle

I believe he may be suicidal.

There once was a Scott named McAmeter
