Just wanna ride!!
I thought about this the other day. Need to get back in for my blood work. Thanks for the reminder, doc.
This is a great thread to bring up from time to time. Props to Aussie for posting it!Gosh do not know where to start, as a firefighter and medic I have certainly seen my share of bad things happening to good people. But, lets heed AB's message to his brothers. I know a little bit about it and while a private person, I have faced with this same thing about 4 years ago. Cancer of the prostate and the possibility of spreading to the bones and other organs was an easy decision to address and I am no spring chicken either when discovered. Now In AB's humor, wish my physican had smaller hands at the time.
What I can offer in a PM for anyone who is struggling with this particular matter, you are never alone when bad things happen. Jeff
Hi there lads ,, to the old regulars on here you may of noticed I've been very quite on here well the heads up is I've got advanced prostate cancer I've had it for almost 12 mths now and in all honesty supprisd I'm still alive mine is terminal and can't be fixed as it spread to the bones , I've had two leg opps (IM nails ) just so I can keep walking and bladder surgery to boot I've tryed all the drugs chemo , radiation , hormone therapy the lot , so at the moment I'm doing another round of chemo and radiation to the spine and on pain killers ,,,, life gone from having your own business and being on top of the world life was great to this ,,,,
Now I'm not here to bang on about my but I want each and every one of you lot to do me a faver ,,,,
That is GO AND GET YOU PROSTRATE CHECKED !!!!! With the PSA test it's a simple blood test that can and will save you life if you get it early enough ,,, don't let the doctor say your too young you don't need it yet that's crap !!!! I'm 50 yr and won't see 51 due to not getting it cheeked and by the time I did its spread out from the prostrate and too late to control it
So if any thing good can come out of this mess will be to save at one of your lives as 1 in 4 WILL suffer from this !!!!! So don't put it of do it today !!!!!
Cheers, Doc. I’ll toast to that. I’ll be headed to the doc in October forHeard my old friends voice in my head this morning as I debated on whether to have the finger wave at my annual checkup today, got it done, only jumped a little, blood work to follow. I will drink a cold one in your honor today.
Thanks, I missed that post...
