Nearly six weeks ago I had a Radical Prostatectomy for, yep you guessed it, a cancerous Prostate.
I have been pretty confident that things will be alright - in fact even (trying) to convince myself that I didn't have Cancer, but last night after nearly three weeks without a catheter I had to get another put in cos of a blockage (my second). I know this ain't much in the scheme of things but I also have my blood tests to be taken this Friday which will tell the success or otherwise of surgery.
So the revisiting of a catheter and the uncertainty of the blood tests has left me a little down at the moment. This is the first time throughout this whole process that I have felt like this and it seems over really silly things (esp the catheter).
Someone, anyone tell me joke, tell me a funny story, talk dirty- just make me larf and feel better - I don't like being like this.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
