|My VA doctor, best doctor I ever had|
Good news folks! Bill's legs are getting better. What a relief!
Tomorrow he has a followup with his doctor at the wound care center. Yes, we have another doctors' appointment.
Yesterday I had my appointment with my doctor at the VA. Every six months I take lab tests. My main concern is checking my PSA level. Good news, my PSA score is still down (.14).
Remember I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 203 when my PSA score was 8.4. After much consideration as to what kind of treatment I would choose, I opted for seed implants. So far that appears to be the right decision, for me. I didn't want to choose removal of my prostate because of the chance of developing some serious side effects. I also choose not to get exterior radiation of estrogen treatments. I don't think I would do well with hot flashes. Of course I have some side effects from the seed implants, the details of which I won't go into here, but most of my "functions" are sill in place and, this is important, I new "pee like a teenager."
Net week I have an appointment with my urologist to go over the results of my CRT scan. Kidney stones. Hopefully if I have any more kidney stones, I'll get a warning and take action to prevent ever going through another painful kidney stone episode.
These days folks I can feel my age. Every morning I get up my body is stiff with arthritis.
Every day, about this time of day, I wind down like an old clock. No more party time for this boy.
And, very important, every day I have to have a nap of at least one hour, or more.
But I am thankful that my health is basically good and I don't have any serious issues like so many others my age. And how lucky is Bill to be approaching age 90 and still in basically good health?
Have a great day folks!
