5 Year Anniversary

ppulatie profile image

Morning all! Today is my 5th anniversary of starting treatments for the Beast! Currently with a PSA of .31, cancer in prostate mostly gone. 3 bone mets have shrunk significantly and another one is now undetectable.

Been a roller coaster ride, full of excitement and fear, but well worth it to get here.

Looking forward to 10 and 15 year anniversary dates.

Best of luck getting to your 10 and 15 years anniversary celebrations. I am working on my 10 year plan now.. Life Is Good, especially with PSA under 1.0.

My 5 year plan involves being around to watch the next series of Marvel movies. 10 years should see the grandkids getting married and then having grandkids.

Correct. The book "The 4th Turning" views history in a different light and 4th Turnings are ages of disruption. One never knows how it will turn out.

Thank you! Keep doing what you are doing is what the docs tell me. And that is just listening to what the docs say.

Congratulations! I can appreciate what you have gone through. I'm so happy for you.

Good morning to you Sir!

I'm also starting my fifth anniversary this month with PSA .38 Best to you. My doc predicated a 5 year expiration but I'm going to prove him wrong. Best to you on your journey.

One doc gave me the same 5 year date. Another said 7-15 years. A third said decade to decades. And the 4th said until something else kills me, but since I am otherwise in good health, who knows.

So is the season for classic cars in the north. Looking forward to spring then! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👍

approaching 5 years in Feb 22. Psa last week was 0.03. Dr said he will not talk predictions of years with me and that I probably will die of something else. Wonder what that will be ? a crazed garbage truck driver? My smart mouth pissing the wrong person off - someone with a gun? A boyfriend who just can't take anymore and pushes me off the deck of the Queen Mary 2 ?life is SUCH an adventure -

Field Goal and Safety? That is more than my college teams score combined! Must be doing something right!

Enjoy the day and tomorrow! Each T-Day pretty special for me now.
