Good luck Mark, I'm going through the same but not stage 3 only early stage, I opted to go for radiotherapy which I start in the new year after 3 months of hormone therapy, I now understand what the females talk about when they get Hot Flushes.

Speedy recovery.
Good luck and a speedy recovery to you too feathered friend

Keep positive, Dad had bowel cancer done at Gold Coast Uni Hospital 2 years ago, the Nurse's and Dr's were so good. I was impressed. And he made a full recovery.

If you need anything don't be shy, I'm only down the road. Even if it's trivial.
Just had lunch at OPA at Vicky Pt on Sunday!
Your Dad is one of the blessed ones that overcame this terrible disease .
I hope he is now enjoying a quality life
One day soon I hope we can find a cure for all mankind

Sorry for the delay in an update

I’m at home recovering.

Pretty uncomfortable at the moment as I have a catheter in but that comes out on Wednesday so will be much better then.

It’s a bloody big operation , but one with a high success rate so fingers crossed I’m ok from here.

A blood test at the end of February will give me the answer to that.

Thanks everyone for all your messages , this is a wonderful community.

Mark,

Once the catheter is removed, you’ll feel much better, a lot more control; the one thing that you’ll probably realise is that things are a bit shorter initially, due to them cutting your urethra, only a millimetre or 2 for me, but for you, probably a couple of inches, so you‘ll be working with only 10” or so for now.@:D

Good luck with the PSA test, they’ll never tell you it’s zero, apparently for legal reasons, but if it’s 0.001(or so), then you’ll be fine.

Enjoy your convalescence, remember, chocolate, alcohol, comfort food and plenty of TV(repeats of the 2008 GF are best); these are the keys to the successful recovery of a champion athlete @;)
