|Me at my home away from home this morning|
Well folks, just got back from my six month update visit to my oncologist. It's been a little over a year since I had my seed implant surgery (May 2nd) for my prostate cancer.
The good news is, I am progressing well. So well, that I won't have to visit my oncologist anymore. He's turning me over to my urologist, who I will visit every six months for the rest of my life. Hey, a small price to pay for the knowledge that (so far) the seed implants have been successful.

My PSA reading is down from 4.8 to 1.2. My oncologist said he would like to see it below 1 but he'll accept 1.2. Hopefully the reading will be lower after my next blood test. I'm just thankful it's not going up or staying the same.

So it's free sailing folks for me for the foreseeable future. I told him that I'm going to be one of his success stories, surviving at least twenty years past my original diagnosis of PC. He said that would make me 91 years old and "that would be a good run." Are you kidding folks? I'm 72 years old now and I've had a damn good run already. It's all gravy from here on folks.
