  1. Hello
    I was diagnosed with prostrate cancer September 2022.
    Decided to have surgery to remove prostrate. Surgery was scheduled for February 2023. 1 week before surgery my Oncologist at Dana Farber ( Boston) decided on a PET scan. Thank God he did, they found the cancer has spread to my bones, ( spine T1 location. The surgery scheduled was stopped. Then radiation was determined along with hormonal treatment ( told would be a 2-3 year process). Radiation was done for 20 visits, Radiologist wanted 44 BUT lovely insurance declined the suggestion by Radiologist. Radiologist and insurance agreed upon 20 radiation treatments. Treatments are done, now meeting with another Radiologist specializing in bone cancer to determine my next treatment.
    It has been a roller coaster of emotions since September 2022.
    Work had been extremely stressful so not currently working to not have to deal with work stress.
    Anyone out there have the same issues??
