On 10 July, 2019, I started daily tablets of Bicalutamide as tests
showed my PSA reading was 7.0 (rather high). 1 month later that
treatment brought the reading down to 0.7 and in November I commenced 20
weekday radiotherapy treatments. On 2nd. January, I had another blood
test and my current PSA measures 0.00something insignificant which is
very good! I go back in 3 months for the next follow up; meanwhile I
just keep taking the tablets.
Good-oh, Mike :-)

Yes! YES! And congratulations on your lovely PSA. Won't ask what it
is as this is a family group.

Yes! YES!
Could you two keep the noise down a bit, please?

Still, I'm glad that it sounds like the treatment hasn't caused you
problems in that department, Mike.

I don't know what's going wrong but there have been quite a few posts
from Mike recently (including this one) that haven't reached me[1] and
I've only seen the replies. I do see some posts from Mike but not all
of them :( Has anyone else had similar problems?

My plus.net feed has been a bit erratic lately with replies to posts often
showing up before the original. I've seen loads from McToodles though.

If I can be bothered to use it, I have a Bluetooth connected keyboard which
works with my devices - only problem being that I like my screen about 15
cm. from my eye to see things well enough. Putting a keyboard in front of
me throws this arrangement out of the window.

to see how it went.

I said that I did not think it would eat an iPad (although to be fair

Good luck with that.

My friend had a low PSA but malignant cells were found. Two surgeons wanted
him to have a prostatectomy. However, he sought an opinion from another and
had cryotherapy at CXH. I hesitate to say cured but no trace of malignant
cells.

Good luck with that.
My friend had a low PSA but malignant cells were found. Two surgeons wanted
him to have a prostatectomy. However, he sought an opinion from another and
had cryotherapy at CXH. I hesitate to say cured but no trace of malignant
cells.

BEWARE! NOT FOR THE SQUEAMISH!!!

Mine dew, having had 2 ‘inspections’ of the variety BrritSki described, I
went on to have a dozen biopsy samples ‘taken’ for further tests - and
confirmation as one side of prostate had very high Gleason figures. All
done now and not an experience one might volunteer for or to add to your
bucket list! I was warned of discomfort and various side effects best
glossed over in this news grope. I must say, I had very little discomfort
or side effects and can’t praise the staff in the Cancer Unit of the Royal
Berkshire Hospital highly enough; everyone was so kind, efficient and
careful as well as understanding and patient with me. I could tell you a
tale about bladder control and the need to present with a full bladder
before lying on the radiotherapy bed - but I’ll spare you that!

On 10 July, 2019, I started daily tablets of Bicalutamide as tests showed
my PSA reading was 7.0 (rather high). 1 month later that treatment brought
the reading down to 0.7 and in November I commenced 20 weekday
radiotherapy
treatments. On 2nd. January, I had another blood test and my current PSA
measures 0.00something insignificant which is very good! I go back in 3
months for the next follow up; meanwhile I just keep taking the tablets.

I had my own biopsy back in the summer. Inflammation but no "rogue" cells.
One thing they don't tell you is that you will be constipated. Another
agony. :-(

(I was curious as to whether inflammation does lead to mutant cells but no
doctor was willing to stick their neck out on this).

Well done though Mike.

If anyone locally is walking by the cancer unit at RBH with five mins to
spare and they have any unwanted magazines which aren’t aimed solely at
women, the radiotherapy unit would love to have them as “OK” or “Hello”
types for the chaps to read while sitting in the radiotherapy areas while
waiting for their treatment once they’ve left their mobiles outside.

Mike noticed the lack of, and Christine, the receptionist asked if we had
anything (only. Y monthly steam railway mag).

An ex, a dentist, said that dentists could order glossy magazines and treat
them as a tax-deductible business expense. He said that most of his dentist
friends got all the ones they and their wives fancied and put them in the
waiting room once they were out of date. I wonder if this could be extended
to hospital consultants?

I - dimly - remember the dentist's room when I was a lad, having comics
- Dandy, Beano, that sort of thing - but with the titles (top strip of
front page) cut off. This is going to have been over 50 years ago, and
also may have been different for military dentists (servicemen's
families).

That explains why my dentist's waiting room only had Golf and Yachting
magazines.

Many years ago, before doctor appointments were invented and the waiting
room was full of wooden chairs in rows and you had to keep an eye out for
those who arrived after you or you wouldn't know when it was your turn,
they always had Readers Digest. Ancient Readers Digest but I didn't see it
anywhere else. There was always something to read if you'd skipped through
all the funnies and it still wasn't your turn.

If you had a really long wait and the right magazine, you could diagnose
yourself while you were waiting ;)

A few years ago I read a very overblown book about a heart transplant:
Mend The Living by Mylis de Kerangal (later republished as The Heart,
and which actually wonthe Wellcome Prize). In it she describes a woman
in hospital as seeing waiting-room magazines with "mature women smiling
from the covers, with healthy teeth, shining hair, toned perineums..."

Not what I'd expect to see in a hospital waiting room, I must say.

I read your overlong and grumpy review because I couldn't bend my
understanding of the perineum into a context that included teeth, hair
and toning. And neither, it seems, could she.

I read your overlong and grumpy review because I couldn't bend my
understanding of the perineum into a context that included teeth, hair
and toning. And neither, it seems, could she.
She was between a cock and a barred [1] place.

Or a Bok [2] and a hard place.

[1] for certain religious followers

[2] well they certainly played like arses in this Test.

If anyone locally is walking by the cancer unit at RBH with five mins to
spare and they have any unwanted magazines which aren’t aimed solely at
women, the radiotherapy unit would love to have them as “OK” or “Hello”
types for the chaps to read while sitting in the radiotherapy areas while
waiting for their treatment once they’ve left their mobiles outside.
Then I shall do that with my not quite New Scientist magazines. I hate
binning them.
