Thanks for all the good wishes. The bone scan happened yesterday but they say that results will not be available for 7-10 days.  More waiting.  I am going to wait until the end of this week and start badgering them in the hope that they will speed up the results.  I am assuming it is because of the backlog that the Radiologist has in processing the scan results.  That was the case with the MRI scan.  I will keep my fingers crossed but all this waiting for results is doing my head in.  They never wait this long on Holby City!  In in the morning, scan, results, op and home in time for Eastenders. :)  Keep you posted.

Good news! Just had a call from specialist cancer nurse to say that preliminary look at bone scan shows no abnormalities.  Phew! What a relief.  Still got the primary to deal with but at least it hasn't taken over the rest of my body.  Visiting grandson in Harpenden just now but hope for another meeting with consultant next week to agree treatment.    :thumbsup:

That is great news and I hope that means that you can now move forward with the treatment as quickly as possible.

All the very best for this - you're in my thoughts.
Right! What's next?

Ooooh. That sounds like a daft idea.  I am in!

In the last two years two family and friends (not blood relatives) in their 70s have been diagnosed with it, really badly (8 on a scale of 1 to 10 or however they measure it).  One had radiotherapy, one had chemo, and both are now clear.  It is evidently quite treatable even at an advanced stage, provided you're willing to let them get in there and kick its arse.

Nice one about no more than just the primary.  I hope you have something nice to treat yourself after all that worry.  And all the best for treating what is their and hope they kick its arse!

Isn't this one of those nasties that actually has a higher mortality rate in under-50s than is does in old buggers?

Update on the situation so far. It seems to have been dragging on for months; Oh, it has.  I am having a radical prostatectomy on 20th July at Addenbrookes in Cambridge.  I will be off the bike for at least 6 weeks (stink!) I am hoping the side effects are not too bad and I can get them under control sooner rather than later.  At least things are moving now.  I am fed up with tests and scans.  It has more or less put paid to my audax season, not that I had that much planned anyway but I did have a couple of 200s and a 100 in my diary and I was hoping to give the Snow Roads permanent a go later in the year.  That will defo be off now.  Wish me luck, I am dreading it.  Operating theatres and me do not good bed fellows make (no pun intended).  Will be staying in Cambridge for a couple of weeks before heading back up to Aberdeen after the Op. :sick:
