arlin report thought of the day: many thoughts, many questions on prostate cancer


Have known I have a high PSA count for about a year now. I had a prostate biopsy done last week, and yesterday got the call from my Urologist. Yep, I have prostate cancer. The next step is a bone scan tomorrow. Then, my significant other and I will meet with the Doc to discuss treatment (of course much will still be determined from the scan).

I was looking around in Bass Pro Shop when I received the call, had a rod and reel in my hand, then became disinterested after the call. Went home, to gather my thoughts, really just became PISSED! Still pissed! Angry pissed! I have no problem going to the bath room, that symptom is not present. So, currently I am really just dealing with the anger management part. Why am I angry? I’ve always been pretty healthy. I just completed my 12 week recovery from open heart surgery, where I had my Aortic Valve replaced and aneurysm repaired. This condition was genetic, I was born with a bi-cuspid aortic valve, rather than a tri-cuspid valve. That’s taken care of! i was back to playing golf! NOW THIS FREAKING CANCER CRAP!

I know other people suffer and deal with much more than I am. That doesn’t escape me. I am grateful, thankful there are options. My thought for today is not a single thought. Much is going through my head. I will deal with this and get it taken care of. It just ticks me off, we have to spend time getting evaluated and fixed; like time is being robbed from us. Maintenance, like I’m an automobile or machine.

I will keep on ticking. Thanks for letting me sound off! Now I’m going fishing.

  1. CERTAINLY WISHING YOU ALL THE BEST AND A COMPLETE RECOVERY!!! YES THERE IS MUCH LURKING IN OUR FOOD AND WATER, ETC…, WHICH COMBINES THE EVILS OF THE WORLD AND THE INVASION OF LIFE. WE HAVE OUR CHALLENGING MOMENTS HERE, MY LOVED ONE OF 59 YEARS OF AGE BECAME A STROKE VICTIM, AND I AM THANKFUL THAT HE IS DOING MUCH BETTER. AS FOR ME, CANCER RUNS IN MY FAMILY, AS WELL AS HEART PROBLEMS. WE SHOULD BECOME MORE OPEN ABOUT MANY THINGS, JUST TO KEEP EACH OTHER INFORMED. WHEN YOU GO FISHING CATCH ALOT OF THOSE OMEGAS FOR THE PROSTATE. AFTER ROBERT HAD HIS STROKE, I HAVE LOST MY MIND COMPLETELY AND BECAME A WOMAN OF TOTAL INSANITY, AS THERE WAS NOT A SINGLE INTEREST(S) THAT I HAVE HAD. KNOW THE FEELING!!!
