Firstly, apologies for not writing an update for a while but things have been going on which have distracted me and I am not talking about the Coronavirus!
A few weeks ago, my wife Barbara was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and it has thrown me a little. Hopefully it has been detected early and after the Lumpectomy on Thursday it will all be sorted.
As for me mostly good news.
My PSA at last count was down to 216 which is down from the high of 1,585 and the PSMA PET scan has shown that a lot of the tumours have reduced in size, some by as much as 50%.
The most tangible piece of good news is that I now longer need to wear the Spinal Brace that I have been wearing over the last three months. It is a great relief not to wear it as I was sweating a lot wearing it as it does not let the skin breath. I was also using calamine lotion every evening to try and prevent get a sweat rash.
I had a funny episode two weeks ago where I was throwing up in the middle of the night, not very pleasant at all. I suspect it was some kind of food poisoning as it was only for a couple of hours as opposed to anything more serious.
And so, I think that just about covers me for now, I do have a Coronavirus story to tell but will do that as a separate post.
Keep well people.
