P.S.A. results

Well I am pleased to say  again that the results of the blood test was once again 0.1,    I was asked if I had any questions,  I told the nurse that the last hormone injection had effected me so badly that I had to see a  psychiatrist, who prescribed an anti depressant tablet, the nurse  seemed genuinely sorry about this, bless her.  Also told her about my increased nocturnal visits to the toilet.  They will write to my g.p. about another tablet for this latest trouble,  I have another year of hormone injections left,  if they still giving me trouble I would be referred to a clinic,  I've had an option to stop the jabs now, it would be up too me to decide about this, but the cancer was so aggressive when I was diagnosed they felt it would be unwise to stop now.

On to better news, I actually sing in front of 30+ plus people on my own which I enjoy very much.    Back over to Swansea  Maggies next week to attend the Art therapy class.
