Lab results from the removed prostate and also tissue samples outside the prostate taken during the prostatectomy also confirmed that it looks like the cancer had not spread yet. I am very thankful for that.

    Strongs Roelf and all others slaying this dragon, you've got this and there is still so much they can do for you. It's tough and tiring but lean on your family and friends (and on God first and foremost, (if you don't believe in God then on what you need to help you through this)) to recharge in times when you cannot do it on your own.

    My comment:
    Blokes: Take Vaseline with you
    Ladies: Flat boob and legs wide

    Pls have the checks done. Even the hospital plans pay checks as recommended.

    Remember your partner and the kids. Do not be a fool. And for the blokes: Who des the best boob job?
    Ladies: do not ask me but if your mate dies did you tell him of the problem/you did to "check"?

    Read and think. If I tell more what to do I will be banned for life.

    I want to thank each and everybody for their support on this thead. I want to assure you that I'm really fine and not scared at all of what the future may hold. I think most guys that did military service will agree with me that the next sh1tstorm to hit you is never what or where you expected, so why worry too much about what you think is going to happen.
    What does make me sad is the knowledge that this fine specimen is going to be turned into an overweight and docile eunuch. Click image for larger version.

    Somehow I suspect that is not going to be the case. Your spirit is too indomitable.

    Dis net sodat jy later vir ander kan vertel presies hoe gelukkig jy was om dit te oorwin.

    Roelf. Ek lees nou eers die thread.

    Baie sterkte. 'n Kennis van my is tans in dieselfde bootjie.

    Aan ons ander wat gesond is: Gaan gereeld vir check ups. Dit is vir niemand lekker nie, maar hoe vroeer dit ontdek word, hoe beter uitkoms is daar.

    Roelf, ek het genees van iets met 'n 100% sterfte syfer. Don't get bogged down in numbers. They are just numbers.

    Ek het 'n beleidsbesluit geneem dat ek nie 'n doodsvonnis gaan aanvaar net omdat iemand dit oor my uitgespreek het nie. Ek het besluit dat ongeag wat omstandighede doen/ lyk/ voorgee ek hardkoppig gaan glo dat ek gaan genees.

    Dit was woes, glad nie maklik nie en ek was ongerieflik naby aan dood op 'n stadium. Maar hier is ek nou al in die vierde jaar na my vervaldatum en beter as ooit.

    Moenie te haastig wees om slegte nuus deel van jou te maak nie. Neem jou voor om deel van die 30% te wees.

    Somewhere in between I'd say.


    In June 2017 I was told by my oncologist (and my urologist) that I have 3 yrs left.
    Plain & simple. The full impact hits you a bit later.

    So I left that oncologist and found another who came highly recommended.
    And here I am today, a bit over 4 years later with no current issues.
    Doctors are not all are the same, and sometimes you yourself might be able to influence the outcome.
