A Semi-Final Word
As of today the proton treatment is complete.
Nuisance side effects should slowly fade completely.
The speech went reasonably well, though, it would have been better had I not been quite so emotional. Of course I wept, but the audience was patient and seemingly appreciative.
The initial PSA result looks very promising. it dropped from a high of 3.8 to 2.41. We will monitor my PSA very closely, i.e., every three months for the next two years.
From time to time I will provide progress reports so stay tuned if interested in outcome long term.
I wish to thank my family and friends who offered their welcome support throughout my tumultuous journey.
