Just got a cheeky diagnosis of prosrate cáncer today. Trying to take it in my stride. Seem to be numbs to bad news.

Everton has preparad me for any eventuality!!!
My mate's dad was diagnosed almost a decade ago now. He got treated and got the all-clear after a few years. Spotting it is the important bit.

Get treated, get better, leave your worry and stress to Everton, mate. ;)

I got some bad news on Thursday. It appears my cancer has spread more than my consultant first thought. My scans had been sent to a specialist hospital for a 2nd opinion and their opinion is that it has got much worse in the 12 months between scans. Also when I mentioned how my body is behaving that seems to indicate a worsening of things. I go and see him in just over a week so hopefully they can at least give me some kind of timescale. They can't do surgery and chemo did no good last time.

Appreciate the comments and help. I've went to a GP before and he keeps on trying "things" but it's absolutely kicking my ass. It's just crap every way I look at it. Have another appointment this Friday because he "wants to talk" after the last one he decided to give me absolutely ruined me for a week.

Got home today from vacation. Happy to be home.
Hey, Riddick. I hope you are feeling a bit better now that you are back home. I love going on vacation but since Covid began I get very anxious being around other people and the safety of home brings comfort. Plus there is nothing like your own bed and pillows :)

I’m sorry about your bad news but let’s hope that it was caught early and you will get better news during the second appointment. Sending lots of strength your way.

Oh darling, that’s not the update that I wanted to hear from you. That's rough. I am so sorry you are having to hear this news. How are you doing? Is there anything I/we can do to help you get through this difficult time? please know again that if you ever need to talk that Im here for you. You can always PM me if you don’t want to communicate in public, I want to be here for you.

May I ask if you also have the support of family or friends, in addition to your doctor’s and medical staff, to help you get through this difficult time?

Much love 💙

Thank you both, your words are very comforting. I would like to think we are all one big family on here, even if we don't agree on everything. I think it was less of a surprise to me unfortunately as I have been feeling tired for a while. Hopefully my consultant can give me some better idea on the details.

Yes Sassy I do have family and friends who want to help out. For the minute I need my space though as I like to have some control and without meaning it some of them try to take that away from me. I'm still working at the minute but I may call it a day depending what the consultant says. I appreciate your kind offer it means a lot to me. I'm hoping I will be OK and still be my usual insightful self when talking about Everton and other subjects. I'll keep you all informed how I'm getting on good or bad.

I would like to think the same. A big family, a big Everton community that’s very caring and wants to look after one another.

I totally understand your need for space and your desire to still being in control of your life but it is good to know you have people near by, and far away, that care about you and are willing to help once you are ready. Stay strong mate! 😘

We don't know each other and it's always difficult to know what to say, even to mates. It's worse not to say anything at all. So I just wanted to send you love and best wishes mate to you and your family and hope things improve for you. Best of luck mate
