Happy Cinco De Mayo as Day 37 has been a long time getting here. The last of the radiotherapy treatments is in 2 hours time. Packed up my bags, booked my ticket home and the 600kms trek begins in a day's time. Back home to reality. Cannot say it is going to be easy as there is the unemployment problems looming over my head and that hassle has been there for 2 years. Head off to the employment agencies as I think I have more chances of getting a job then the dole. I'll be able to pass a medical now that the 8 months of hospital treatments have finished. Tools are probably rusty now maybe we both are a little that way inclined. Good luck one and all.

Congratulations leftoeve and your completion of radiation therapy for your prostate cancer. You big issue is to maintain good health , keep fit and stay in a good mind space. Dont worry about work/dole because worry is a bigger enemy to your long term wellbeing that a job. Perhaps there are some local cash odd jobs that one can do to suplement centrelink? I have volunteered at my local hospital and I find it very rewarding and it keeps my mind from overthinking the cancer prognosis. What is your follow-up regime? In my case when I get through the 39 sessions of radiation i will have a 6 week wait & then blood tests for PSA/Testosterone (I'm off androgen therapy since late April. If everything goes well (PSA still low) then I will resume the androgen treatment for another 12 months.(If not it is data dependant) Do you have any side effects from Radiation? Congatulations on your completion of Radiation. Cheers Zol.
