Thanks Zol for suggestions. If you have read my earlier posts in "Cancer Strikes Again", and looked at my web page, you will see that I am no newcomer to medical issues. Throughout my life I have always been a fighter against adversity, be it medical, mental or financial. By having my faith and maintained a very positive attitude, even under the worst circumstances I have survived and maintained my goals. One of my problems is that I am unable to retire gracefully and accept my age, so much so at present I am laid low with back and thigh muscle strain after moving some rather heavy furniture on my own instead of using a "fork lift" or calling upon my neighbors for assistance. Aaah! such is life when you are living on your own and try to be too independent. Overall I have accepted my lot and feel I have succeeded in overcoming all my issues. There is just one thing I cannot recover and that is my long past youth. Thank goodness for pain relieving medication which relieves my crazy excursions beyond my physical boundaries 🙂 Dave

When I was diagnosed with Metastatic Prostate Cancer quite by accident early in 2018. It was classed as Terminal and had affected my spine and pelvis with Cancer nodes from a new growth that appeared where the original Prostate Gland was removed due to cancer in 2000. As you now see that my Cancer is under control. I saw my Oncologist in January of this year (2019) and was told that my PSA has gone from an initial reading of 107 to a miniscule 0.59! That the damage to the spine is now being repaired. The new calcium growth shows up as white areas on the skeletal scans. My Faith and determination has seen me through another terrible year in my life. But now in 2019 I give thanks for my Salvation and will close this feed, which is no longer applicable to my prognosis. I will continue my story in "Living With Cancer" Thank you to all the people who have contacted me and given me support. Most of all the scientists who created the drugs to bring this result about and give me hope for the future. Thank you Dave.
