I read the BBS every day (just about), but donít post much.

Last Thursday I was due to receive the results of my biopsy and attended the surgery at the appointed time only to be told that, due to some booking cock-up, my consultancy would be a couple of hours later. This wasnít a problem for me and I was turning to leave when the receptionist told me I would be seeing the nurse as well as the doctor. I must have looked a bit mystified and asked why this should be so as I was only attending to hear the results of my test. The look on the receptionistís face rather gave things away, but she covered herself by simply saying it was often the case that the nurse would attend. I went off to sit in the library for an hour or so with the almost certain knowledge that I was going to get some bad news.

This whole thing has gone from one stage to another. Following a routine check up with my doc it was suggested that I undertake a PSA. The reading came out at four and half or something, not very high at all; but he nevertheless suggested that I see the specialist. A rectal examination by the specialist came up with ďsome hardening on one side which ought to be investigatedĒ, so I went for an MRI scan. The scan suggested some deformity in shape which led to the biopsy. All of these procedures were unpleasant, sometime painful and, three weeks later, Iíve still got the rather discomfiting consequences of the biopsy examination. Anyway, the doc told me that I had cancer cells present in the prostate, but they are not aggressive, just the slow growing type. This would be fine except that the samples he took indicate they are widespread and he now wants me to have a second biopsy, this time under total anaesthetic, for a more comprehensive examination. He explained that this one would be conducted not via the rectum (as had the first one), but directly into the prostate through the area of the scrotum, or thereabouts. This is a safer procedure as there is a lower likelihood of infection, but it is more involved, what with being knocked out and everything.

I asked a lot of questions, mainly to repeat what he had said so that I could be sure that I had heard him correctly, but I am still a bit confused. The first biopsy established that the cancer is there, that it is non-aggressive, but it is apparently quite widespread. The second one will indicate precisely how widespread, but what will happen then? If it is confined then I guess the advice will be just to have the regular PSA and MRI tests to establish that nothing has developed; but what if it is found to be widespread? I presume that will mean having the prostate removed or why else would the second biopsy be recommended? That will mean hospitalisation, convalescence and all that business, which I donít relish.

TBH a large part of me wishes I had never had that marginal PSA test in the first place. I am now in the situation of having a confirmed cancer with lots more unpleasant testing and a vague prognosis. The nurse gave me reams of information that I havenít yet had the heart read, but I suspect that I am familiar with most of it as, naturally, I have been looking up stuff anyway.

I have told my immediate family about the situation, but have not said anything to friends and more distance relatives. This is because I am presently holding a quite prominent public position (it ends on 31st December) and, should I announce it to the world, I will undoubtedly be inundated with best wishes, cards, letters of sympathy and so on from all the very well meaning individuals who, I am sure, genuinely care about my well-being. I hope this doesnít make me seem callous, itís just that I would feel obliged to respond and I am not sure how I might react.

Sorry if this seems like I am sounding off guys, I certainly donít wish to complain about my treatment or the dedication of the medical staff or anything like that Ė they have all been great and are clearly trying to help me. But the experience is pretty grim and, who knows, if I hadnít been told I might have just continued my good and happy life without anything to worry about?

Great result on Sunday, really cheered me up!
All the very best CI.

Smash it !

Said this before get a second opinion. I was diagnosed low range 5 years ago so far the psa has stayed low. The first specialist I saw was gung ho to remove it with new fangled key hole surgery. Second one said not to bad and keep it monitored. CL i ,I know a lot of people that have had it removed and it hasnt affected them once the initial convalescenc is over. But don't ignore it.

Thanks again to everyone. You are all great guys and, I suspect, a broad reflection of how our Club is different from others in terms of the basic decency and good qualities of our support.

I want to wish CantSpell the very best and extend my thoughts and best to all on this forum who are dealing with this business. I will now lay off posting for a while (but will keep reading) and will give an update when my next bout is completed, probably sometime in the early New Year.

Best to everyone and thanks again, you are all great guys.

If you want to be impressed by the BBS, go find Stavrosís ďMy BattleĒ thread and just read through it. It also has a happy ending.
