  • Hi sorry you have had to come here..

    As you may gathered i have a different cancer, though we do have a few males  with Prostate Cancer.

    Though hey any questions you have some one will be able to answer or just generally support you,.

    I have done chemo, had radiotherapy and immunotherapy, and still standing.

    We all support each  other and, we laugh, scream cry rant, but we are all here to have that moan.

    I just take each day as it comes and goes, some days are better than  others.

    I am well past my sell by date as along with quiet a few others,

    Just wanted to welcome you.

  • Hi   I’m in the same situation, surgery, chemo and lifelong hormone, I’m working full time (although from home) emotionally it’s very hard, but getting better, I have b12 injections with hormone. Also on antidepressants sertraline which helps.

  • Hi Masrat. Got the same as you. Beat my prognosis by more than 5 years, you can do the same. There is so much research going into our cancer, you really can be hopeful of the future.

    eventually you will see it as a nuisance, nothing more that that.

    it takes some time to come to terms with it but you will, I am sure of that.

    goid luck.
