UPDATE:

Had my appointment this morning with Dr. Oscar Goodman. Poor guy had a quarter size scrap on his upper middle forehead from losing his battle with his car hood.

Ok, onto business...

Upcoming appointments:

12/05/2022 930am for my Treatment Shot of Eligard 5mg.

12/09/2022 8am for an MRI Thoracic Spine with and without contrast

02/09/2023 9am for an MRI Lumbar Spine with and without contrast

02/10/2023 Blood work

02/17/2023 9:15am Follow up appointment with Dr. Goodmam

GREAT NEWS...I'm beating cancer!! I'm NO LONGER Stage 4, I'm now at Stage 3. Dr. Goodman confirmed that the diagnosis of my Houston, TX Oncologist for my Stage 4 Prostate Cancer was correct. The MRI's are to MAKE SURE that there's no cancer anymore in my T12 and L4; more of a safety factor....better to be safe than sorry...a concrete way to verify prognosis that there's no cancer anymore in my spine!!

MORE GREAT NEWS...My LAST TREATMENT SHOT OF ELIGARD will be in February 2024. That means, I'm 5 shots away from no more Eligard Treatment Shots. Still not out of the woods, yet!! Will have to continue monitoring my PSA levels, which are STILL at ZERO.

SOME MORE GOOD NEWS...Once I finish my current prescription of Bicalutamide 50mg, which is used for the treatment of advanced prostate cancer, I am to discontinue taking it because I'm no longer in Stage 4.

Dr. Goodman wants me to continue losing weight...I'm trying!!

Well, until my next update, see you all then. Thank you all for your continued prayers and support!!

I give all of my Praise to God for His Grace and Mercy in the continued healing me of my cancer!!

12/05/2022 930am for my Treatment Shot of Eligard 5mg. DONE!!
Appointment was changed to same day, but a later hour: 1pm. Same burning in my left arm the last few seconds. Treatment shot hit me real hard this time for some reason. I couldn't drive home right away because I couldn't focus so I sat in the parking lot for about 30 minutes. By the time I got home, I felt very sick. I went to bed for several hours and when Linda woke me up for dinner, I still wasn't feeling any better. I chocked down some chicken noodle soup and went back to bed. Next day I felt drained but not down for the count.

12/09/2022 8am for an MRI Thoracic Spine with and without contrast. DONE!!
MRI's aren't my most favorite scene because I'm claustrophobic. This MRI tales about 30 minutes. 10 minutes in, the tech tells me over my headset that it'll be another 30 minutes...one of us can't tell time. Tech piped some fantastic rick n' roll through the headsets, like, Queen, Billy Joel, The Beatles, Journey and Eagles so I didn't quite mind the MRI tunnel...just as long as I kept my eyes closed. The last 5 minutes the tech gave me a shot in my right arm. This shot is a dye that helps the doctors see things much clearly.

Nothing else until:

02/09/2023 9am for an MRI Lumbar Spine with and without contrast

02/10/2023 Blood work

02/17/2023 9:15am Follow up appointment with Dr. Goodman
