I got good news my PSA went down almost a full point. I'm hopeful the urologist is going to say keep doing what your doing but I didn't do anything. I pretended I didnt know about it the last six weeks or so. I see the dr tomorrow.
Nothing really changed except we started walking. I find it had to believe with the shape I was in a year ago that my activity level influenced it.
So I didn't look into it though. I guess I'll do it now but I'm pretty happy.
I have the Urologist next week. That means "cancer doctor". I have every reason to believe I will get a good result because I cleaned up so much. But whatever. It's getting about time for that biopsy again i bet and if he were to ask me about it right now (results depending) I'd say "I think we can skip it". IDK. I like this guy? I don't think he needs to do unnecessary procedures for money. I have very conveniently put this out of my mind the last 3 months. (who says the ability to disassociate is always a bad thing?) The only thing bothering me somewhat is last time i expected a bad result and got a good one so naturally this time I expect the reverse. Oh well. Since this thread is sort of a dumping ground for my health issues I wanna mention that the steroid injections I got in my wrists (which I have an appointment with him soon too) really really worked and reduced my over all pain threshold a LOT.
Well, no luck! my psa was up quite a bit so he scheduled an MRI and depending on that result, another biopsy. He said i get to be in the hospital and general anesthesia this time thank God. i said I hope youll be willing to give me a few painkillers for after and he pushed back about it. he said we usually don't write prescription for painkillers for that, i laughed at him.
Im not happy. last time i was bleeding for a couple days and very uncomfortable.
Anyway im unhappy with that news. i was feeling really happy this morning so i was apprehensive? Lots of times feeling really good happens before a downer.
i feel like i was ready though in the back of my mind i was like "hope for the best, prepare for the worst," which i think i did. So im not feelimg too bad.
