    Well if he doesn't post I can on his behalf so with that being said.....

    I hope all doctors and nurses treat well you and peace is all around you whilst I work on my creative stories that don't actually exist. This may be the last post of mine here...maybe. but as long as all have good luck and peace that's good.

    Forgot to report back, I appear to be doing well for a man who who engages in minimal exercise but is not a fat bastard. So that's good. Did have a chat eventually about the mental health aspect of cancer and I agreed to see a psychologist. As my oncologist said it's pretty common for most people to see one after such a big thing in their lives. I suppose he's right as I don't really talk about it much, and I didn't take losing my hair particularly well at the time. Anyway on the bright side my hair is growing back completely different, which is crazy and my facial hair will not stop growing. I'm basically able to grow a beard of in just over a week.

    It was Rachel's funeral Thursday was a difficult day, very emotional.

    It was a lovely send off though, horse drawn carriage, black horse, purple head gear, her favourite colours. Just got to me seeing the coffin, it was a custom one with a photo of Woolacombe bay, which I took, and a photo on the screens in the chapel I took. The eulogy also mentioned me being her soul mate, I guess I should have expected it but still got to me.

    Also was a memorial at the school she worked in yesterday, hundreds of balloons let off with seeds in which was nice.

    Thought those two events might help it hit home but still hasn't really, like it was all for someone else. It all feels a bit surreal, been trying to get back to normality with work and playing games but not made much difference.

    Anyway that is my story, in a thread of sad stories coming to an end.

    Hopefully all those still suffering have a positive outcome, I say positive but you know what I mean.

    Good luck all I hope it works out for you.

    That's tough, Mecha-DR. Hope your Mum's as comfortable (no little irony in that word) as she can be.
    Hang in there, mate.

    Went back for my post-op follow up / test results yesterday. Looks like they managed to get it all out! No requirement for radiotherapy next year. \o/

    Apparently there was a lot of cancerous cells in there - 5ml out of a (surprisingly small) 30ml prostate. They did say that if even one cell had managed to get out, then it could lodge somewhere else and start up again, but that's what they test for.

    Got a first test on Jan 15th, then every three months for a year, and half-yearly for the next 9 years after that. He said that if I go 5 years with untraceable PSA counts then I can pretty much forget about it for the rest of my life.

    If anyone's interested, this is what I had done (and a pic of the cool robot)... Mr Sooriakumaran was the surgeon who did my procedure.

    RoboCancerBuster

    Just got to have medication to assist with a... lack of functionality... which should (fingers crossed) return in the next 6 months or so.

    And lose some weight to try and reverse this Type 2 diabetes. But I'm a fat git, so I should be doing that anyway.

    Sending good vibes to all of you out there undergoing treatment or waiting on results.

    NHS FTW and FCUTA!

    Glad to hear it boo, don't know if I could let a robot near my arse after watching that Dead Space 2 bit. Yikes.

    Unfortunately my Nan's taken a turn for the worse. Although the chemo seemed to have done the trick earlier on in the year, she's really deteriorated over the last few weeks, just unable to eat or drink anything substantial, in turn is struggling to mobilize. They want to get her in for more chemo but she's way, way too weak. I really hope I'm wrong but I don't think she's got much fight left.

    We're due to move into a house in a cul-de-sac over the road from them in the new year and in a perfect world I'd have been able to take the lad with me to have a brew with them each night after work. Genuinely breaks my heart thinking of my Granddad on his own. Though he'll still have Mum / Auntie and our family round him I'm sure nothing could replace that loss of being with someone for over 60 years. Fuck man...

    @boo That's great news - glad things are looking up. You've been so light-hearted through it all but I can't imagine what you must have been going through - it's a credit to you. Hope you have used your recovery to build loads of lego!

    The robot does look a bit too much probe-ulator though ;)
