Later today I'm off to hospital to see the results of my latest bone and CT scans aswell as some blood tests.

After being diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer ( PSA 67, Gleeson 4+4 ), which had leaked out into a lymph node and a vesicle, I started on Zolodex immediately. Two weeks later I started on the Stampede trials drawing the G leg, Aberaterone. All seemed well until a couple of weeks ago when I started with lower back and groin pain, hot flushes and itchyness. I this just me being paranoid, old and creaky or do I just need a good scrub down?

We shall see what we shall see!

    Hello Lorraine,

    Scans all clear! The little bugger tried to sneak out but we seem to have him on the back foot. Subject to a clear MRI Radiotherapy is back on the table so we''ll be able to zap the demon!

    Macmillan BIG WALK near Worksop next week so training steps up in ernest.

    CARRY ON CARRYING ON!   Paul A Smith
