Agressive Prostate Cancer

I've been diagnosed with a Prostate cancer of 8 (1-10) which is considered an aggressive cancer. I've started treatment, consisting of a pill every day and shots every three months, starting next Tuesday. The good news is that I've had no pain due to the cancer and surgery on my bladder. The bad news is that my treatment doesn't remove the cancer, only shrinks it and slows it down. It could be a lot worse, though. I'm still alive and kicking! Prostate cancers in old guys are quite common.

The ulcer on my left leg has healed.

    1. Hi Raju, nice to hear from you again!

      I have a choice to be positive about my health or be negative. It's more fun to be positive! I have the cancer, and we do what we can to control it. Life is like that. We do what we can to have a good life, and life goes on.
