    Well hopefully mine and Gmbrezzo's cancer battles help too inspire a lot more of you guys and gals to go and get proper health checks, especially those of you old farts over 40 years of age lol.

    Yes you are old if your 40+ ask any teen or twenty something.

    This is not the sort of thing i would wish on my worst enemy, and even though the surgery went well and they got the gland out cleanly, it is now the years of checkups to make sure it hasn't come back or spread to another part of the body.

    If you do go too the doctors for a checkup, demand a PSA blood test, it is a more definitive test to determine if you have an issue , "BUT" a raised level is not indicative of prostrate cancer . The old finger up the bum , is not always a good method of determining prostrate cancer, but if your tests come back abnormally high, it helps the doctors to see if it is enlarged, and that may be absolutely nothing either. The old adage " better safe than sorry " rings true.

    So do yourselves and your loved ones a massive favour, and GO AND GET CHECKED OUT.

    Well done matey. Out the other side now hopefully.

    I'm not up with the tradition in Aus, but in the UK, when someone is ill or recovering, you visit them with lots of these....

    And for some obscure reason, sometimes a bottle of this....

    Cheers Ugame, much appreciated . This is just the start of the fun, now the recovery part comes, and retraining my bladder not too let go just because there is fluid in there, i'll be wearing adult diapers for a few weeks and hopefully the pelvic floor exercises go well enough to switch to liners and allow me to go back too work in my proper capacity.
