Smerk - 08 November 2011 06:08 AM

*sigh*

Not been a good day today. I seem to have gotten ill after I got drenched on the way home from work yesterday. And I’ve been told that my brother-in-law’s father has just been diagnosed with prostate cancer.  No idea on how far gone it is, or what treatments may be offered as yet.

Ick, that’s no good Smerk.

*props up Smerk in front of some bad television with lots of pillows and hot soup*

As for the prostate cancer, don’t worry too much. As my father (in the medical field himself) says, “Prostate cancer is usually something you die with rather than from.”. In other words, most cases aren’t going to be malignant or advanced enough to warrant concern, especially since it tends to occur in elderly men most frequently. Those that are worrisome, it’s a simple matter of removing the prostate… which most guys would rather avoid for obvious reasons.

Yeah, update to that - he’d actually had his prostate removed a few months ago for an unrelated problem.  Tests done on the tissue came back with positive results to cancer, but he was never informed, so it’s been left untreated.  Updated diagnosis is that the cancer has actually attacked his hip-bones.  He’s currently in a private hospital with one of the best oncologists in Perth to undergo treatments.

Ah. Ick. That’s not good. Bone cancer is hard to treat, but is thankfully itself not terribly lethal. Problem comes from it spreading to other locations.

On the plus side, you have a lot on your side for yelling at them.

Going to be another slow day at work.  I hope everyone else is having a great day wherever you are.  And don’t get into trouble….  *glances at Boo and Dave*
