I've retired due to my prostate cancer - can no longer work. I wanted to work for another four years, but there it is. I can concentrate on home and fighting illness and the cognitive and other effects of illness and treatments.
As I've mentioned in a previous post, my cancer was not caught in time for prostate surgery. I was already at stage four when diagnosed at 48. I'm 51 now.
After five chemotherapy treatments with taxotere, my PSA of 143.0 (not a typo) dropped almost 30 units to 114.0. Hadn't imagined I would feel good about such a number.
