So, got the word yesterday that Loma Linda, and the Proton Beam Therapy, is definitely not in my future.
That leaves me with either the seed implant therapy, or the external beam radiation therapy.
I'm not really enthused with either of them, but they are both preferable to surgery.
Who knew cancer would be such a pain? I didn't sign up for this, and I would definitely like to speak to the management. I've been calling for ages, but no one seems to answer.
So that's where I stand. It's a bit of a surreal life right now. I have my book signing tomorrow night at the Mint in Enumclaw, and I have my 'Escape from Alcatraz' swim on the 25th of this month. The yin and yang of life.
And I'm REALLY beginning to feel the effects of lowered testosterone. I'm back to the way I was a few years ago. Tired, workouts are drastically reduced, recovery time is longer, etc. Damn brain tumor.
Time to get some treatment underway so that I can get it over with. As they say, 'a job begun is half done.'
As I think I said before I'm seeing one more specialist next week, then I'll make my treatment decision.
If anyone has any advice I would love to hear it. Post in the comment section or send me email.
