Mike & Fred, I realise this is NOT the page to tell people about what can happen to them, but I feel that they should know.

Kindly move if you feel it’s inappropriate.

Take care & stay safe friends.


PROSTATE CANCER



I’ve not posted this before, I can’t remember an “in depth” post on Prostate Cancer on the forums previously.



So here goes, but first a bit about my life.



I started my business back in September of 1971, I loved it & become very passionate about it.



For over 48 years I had zero problems .



But in May of 2020,, I was told I had Prostate Cancer.



I underwent 6 Chemo treatments, followed by 5 Radiation.



Christmas last year, I was told that it had spread.



At home one day, I started screaming uncontrollably with pain & put into hospital.



I then became at risk of diarrhoea.



You get the urge & have to get to a toilet quickly, very bloody quickly.



Even today, although yesterday , bowel movements are getting more solid.



Plenty of pain killers, the cancer was in my bones & destroying the calcium.



I was now at risk of broken bones.



3 more Chemo & it was not working, so that was stopped.



Did anther 5 Radiation then sent home after 5 weeks.



At home one day & I started talking incoherently.



Another day in hospital.



Both my white & red blood cells were low.



We only carry 5 litres of blood, I was given 2 litres.



The body odour emanating from either the Chemo or Radiation is foul, but appears to be going.



I bruise & bleed easy, & look worse than a monkey person.



In two years, I have dropped from 106 kilos, to 76 kilos.



I am very quickly out of breath.



I sleep most days.



But I may wake up at 1:00am, & stay awake until 5:00am.



At home, I’m confined to a wheelie Walker to get around.



On the very rare occasions I do get out, I’m confined to a wheel chair.



I am losing my hearing & am also now visually impaired.



My bottom lip is swollen & I bite it regularly .



It also means that I can’t drink properly & have to suck fluid rather than try to drink, otherwise it spills everywhere.



Going to get straws today. 🤣



More importantly, I am also losing my memory.



This is very frustrating, so if I say the wrong thing, my apologies.



Nothing more can be done, only a matter of time before I fall off of my perch.



My apologies for such a long post, but I want YOU. to know what YOU MAY be in for.



I STRONGLY ADVISE EVERYONE TO HAVE REGULAR BLOOD CHECKS TO HELP AVOID MY PROBLEMS.



I sincerely hope that none of my colleagues suffer this debilitating disease.



Stay safe, take care & get tested regularly.

Thank you for sharing that Shorty. Cancer is a horribly debilitating disease! I've watched too many close friends suffer through it. Your post helps to paint a face on it. And since many of us are ultimately going to experience this, statistically speaking, your advice is well taken. I appreciate your caring enough to give us a glimpse of what you're going through. My heart goes out to you and Delia. Hang in there my friend!

This is always the right place to talk for you Shorty. Feel free to vent, advise, scream or shout. What's the etiquette for sipping 12 year old scotch through a straw?

It's always been a pleasure reading your informative and humourous posts over the years.

I hope you figure out a way to get a pint of Guinness or taste some Irish Whiskey in the days ahead.
Makers Mark got that slippery wax on the bottle...gotta hep some!

myrrh gum kills a host of cancer cells, bacteria, parasites and can reverse prostate cancer although very seldom you will not read or hear about it. Powerful antioxidant. get the supplement.
