I have been thinking the same thing, his last post appears to be 3 months ago.
Yes. He's alive and well. He's on vacation for a bit.
Yes , I have . I too was concerned with his absence . I called him . He’s doing fine . Just laying low after being harassed by another member .. hu isn’t the same without him . Please Come back j-o-h-n ? Take care ✌️😎
I've been wondering the same thing lately. You are missed Mr. J-O-H-N! I do understand the need for a break every once in a while. Relieved to know you've been in contact with him and that he's okay. Thank you Faith & Lulu & Tom for posting.
Thanks for the update, Scott. I’ve been wondering where John was for some time. Was thinking the worst. I can’t imagine why someone here would want to harass him.
One in every barrel !😳
J-O-H-N did reply to a PM early at his departure. I did not hear he was harassed and only heard he made the decision not to participate anymore. A definite loss though it seems some did not get or appreciate his humor. I for one did very much. I hope he is well.
He doing other stuff ,he said . A man of many interest beyond humor .We used to banter back and forth like Don Rickle .. some people just can’t take a joke . He picked up n the third call yesterday . He said , on the first he was showering with his wife , on the second with his girlfriend . 😂😂😂🥳🥳. I can’t count the times j-o-h-n lifted me up out of the dirt .. He’s my man . Luv this guy .. later ✌️
That's good to hear. For me it has been like the elephant in the room. We all know he is missing but we don't say anything about it.
I spoke to him . I’ll call him manana and update ya. 👍
He is AOK . ❤️🙏
Good to know, my ice cream ain’t tasting the same till I know he is fine and good 😌
Gonna have two scoops of chocolate chip ice cream now…yippee
Scott send him all our good regards, thanks 🙏
3 scoops is better. Chocolate chip please..
Hello J.O.H.N come back.....Do not get disturbed by some member's comments.... Diversity of opinion is essential....Sat Sri Akal...life is sacred and eternal...
Come back J-O-H-N!! We need you!
J-O-H-N, are you listening? Please be aware that lots and lots of us like your postings. Don't be shy.
J-o-h-n …. Our beloved is doing fine and dandy . Chipper as ever . Fine as frogs hair .. 🥳🥳👏👏😎just on break !
J-O-H-N, If you are reading lately. We need your sence of humour.Life is pretty straight without a twisty!
OMG, this reminds me, need to call your brother, tell him at least found my car keys, darn this Lupron brain memory really sucks!
Good for him to be taking his vacations, how we all wish we were never in this group! We get concerned for fellow warriors and in a way for ourselves. We just want to hear everyone is alive and well. Love you all! ❤️
No I haven't heard from him Missing him too
He has a quality seldom seen
Really hope he is doing well
I was wondering about his obvious unauthorized absence. I thought I might have to step in.... Big boots to fill. Glad he's ok and just being grouchy.
Why would anyone harass a brother ?
It is a sort of reaction to one's state...so you express your anger thru hurting the brother...JOHN should just laugh aloud like Chinese Boudha.........
Come back and make us laugh at the mess we are in...IT is all mind game...
For someone who may be new to all this and asks a serious question, that person could be irritated but what could be perceived as a flippant reply by John. In fact, quite a long time ago, I messaged my concern.....I think his response was a flippant remark..though I don't know if he intended it as such. Some of us just are more serious than others? I suspect JOHN ran into such criticism from someone else?
Your point is well taken.
However, I still think that "laughter is the best medicine"!
Humor helps us (me) to deal with the serious matters at hand.
I guess that there are times to be serious and times we can laugh, maybe that's for us to discern. I understand your point of view, it's odd how sometimes for example in a phone text or even a letter, the subject matter can be totally misinterpreted.
I put one on here some months back, about how safe sex is now a handrail around the bed, fortunately is was met well, another day perhaps not.
"safe sex is now a handrail around the bed"😂😂😂
I missed that one!!
Perhaps you were asleep ;-D
Or maybe it was before I tapered off Z & P! (stopped Lupron a year ago!)
How have been doing since tapering down the Z&P ? Are still okay without the Lupron, I guess that you are monitoring the monitors, so to speak ?
My dx (exactly 3 years ago) was G9 but S3. Did meet 2/3 of the Stampede criteria.
Stopped Z & P in January.
Within the past month I've had bone and complete CT scans (along with some new blood work) and no evidence of any mets.
Met with my MO last week (great doc, however, he strongly disagreed with my decision to stop ADT!) and he gave me a clean bill.
However, he said "I'll see you in 3 months". Just to make sure?😟
What was the reason behind your decision to stop the meds ?
Good question! In 2/20 my MSK RO looked me in the eye and said "you are not going to die from APC"
He did a great job with HDR Brachy, 25 days of IMRT and he referred me to my MO!
It was then that I decided to stop.
However, MO strongly suggested that I continue Z & P for another year. Agreed.
I posted the following awhile back:
Hmm... So in 2/20 my RO says I'm "cured", however, my MO butts in and declares...not so fast Bozo!!
Used to be a headboard…..well, for some of us rednecks….
Although I live in CT, I'm a redneck at heart!
Trying to convince "Darling Wife" to move to SC!
If you do, make sure you move to Upstate SC. More “REDNECKS”. I know. From a lifetime of experience. Gotta go now. Need to grab a beer outta the fridge on the front porch.😀
LOL! Nah, I guess I'm a pseudo redneck!😁
Used to have a 2nd home in Hilton Head.
Love the Low Country!
I rented a place on Hilton Head for two months back in the summer of 1998. A beautiful place and loved every minute of it. Just have a longing for the upstate.

Miss you J-O-H-N. Come on back.
I saw a comment from him just 1-2 days ago.
I've had several interactions with J-O-H-N over time and came to see his 'humor' as - 'let's not take ourselves too seriously / always look at the brighter side of life' because we are gifted enough to have people who care for us joining the difficult and sometimes awkward feelings that accompany PCa.
I HAVE offended a few people myself through posts - not intending to inflict damage - but sometimes we call 'em the way we see them - and we aren't always going to be right or mainstream.
I'd like to see J-O-H-N rejoin 'hu' - he was different - but he never intended to cause added grief or show a condemning point of view - EVER.
I also note that ALL of my jokes are much funnier - so that strokes my ego with pizzaz !
Come back when you are ready and know that you are appreciated by the vast majority .....
Humor is good medicine we miss you J-O-H-N
There will be no laughing!
Hey j-o-h-n, if you read this, here is a plan:
If memory serves me, its a short drive from where you live on "Looong" Island to the ferry dock at Port Jefferson, NY.
Now, I could jump on the ferry in Bridgeport, CT (short drive for me too) and take the relaxing trip over to PJ. (Hmm... I wonder if they would let me drop a line and troll for striped bass on the way over 🤔)?
We can meet in the elegant bar at the Danfords Hotel (next to the dock) and knock back a few🥂🍸
Let me know...
Hmm... It just occurred to me that this invite may be misconstrued by a few.
So, "Darling Wife of NOW 48 years" has agreed to accompany me on the trip!
And maybe hold my rod , if I'm allowed to fish...💃
No more laughter? Say it ain’t so Faith!😂👏❤️
If you tell him you miss him he will stay away to mess with you but if you tell him to stay away he will be back in a flash with cloths on I hope, not flashing in the way we sometimes think of it, but you never know about J_O_H_N he is unpredictable. J-O_H_N don't let all this attention go to your head and think your some kind of Star. Have missed you buddy!🍸🍸🤠
Hmm... Hey Doc, are you referring to reverse psychology?
Haven't read your bio, but I'm guessing that you are either a dentist or a podiatrist (only kidding)😋
If I were a dentist I would be down in the mouth all day and if I were a podiatrist I would be a heeler of feet,
Not as good as J-O-H-N I know 🍸🍸🤠
Yes come back J-O-H-N we need humour to get us through the day ! particularly since lockdown a silly joke is the best medicine Glad to hear hes ok 👍
J-O-H-N, enough already.....the ice cream has melted into an ugly goo
Glad J-O-H-N is doing well and keeping well showered. By the way, with your love of ice cream, do you eat ice cream while showering? Anxious for your return….
Last time I talked to J-o-H-N he was working on backflips and handstands, so was starting to get worried. Glad my Greek brother is ok!
J-O-H-N, see how much people like you! It is not easy to earn such popularity. You are a star !
Everyone on this forum has a role to play. Some the clinical trial aspect; some the latest and greatest research; some future research; but only one with the sense of humor that is uniquely j-o-h-n! As a fellow New Yorker ( long islander actually) I NEED your humor! You are truly missed
what happened to J. O.H NHe got trapped by his own..humor...
He discovered his own dark side of ego....
a mind enjoying humor and laughter at dance of life takes all insulting comments as anti humor
So please shed your ego and false sense of pride....and hurt
Humor is living in non duality
beyond all hurts....
just in Anand....
Pick up your humor sharing...
