It's an obstacle. You've met many others before and, like then, you will either get over it or round it.

For the next few weeks/months it will be you on the front seat.

My sincerest thoughts, hopes and best wishes are with you both.

Be strong.

What can I say. Grant all the best for a speedy recovery. Susan hang in there. I've never met either of you but what you've put together in HU is a fantastic community and I'm sure we'll all be thinking of you (and yes I'll organise my PSA check in the next few days since I'm of that age)

back on the road again

You were both able to go RTW when it was more facing the unknown.
Both able to be an example for all of us and a source of wise advice for the younger following your path.
Able to create the most amazing site I know in the whole internet and make us feel part of that community.
And both able to overcome it together and with all our support.

Happy you are in best hands, wish you the best recovery,

Another hubber, biker & traveller

Horizons Unlimited is a valuable resource for all us travel addicts. But the most important thing right now is your own health. Everything else is secondary. Do take it easy and look after yourselves first.

My thoughts are with you both.

Dear Grant and Susan,

I’m so sorry to hear about Grant’s prostate and hope that the treatment will be super successful.

I count myself fortunate that although I, too, have prostate cancer, (so far) it’s not aggressive and, following a significant prostate reduction, my PSA has fallen down to safe levels. Now for 6-monthly monitoring.

The reason I’m sharing this with you – and through you, lots of other oldies like me – is to point out another test that older men might like to have done, and that’s an ultrasound of the bladder.

My urologist was staggered when he saw the size of my bladder which had enlarged to accommodate the 2x increase (into the bladder) of my prostate, and his over-riding concern was not that my PSA was what it was but that left untreated my bladder was at risk of collapsing.

A bladder collapse would have meant that I would have to insert a catheter whenever I wanted to pee – not a pleasant thought. And so I had my prostate reduced by 2/3rds down to its original size.

I had had no idea that my bladder had enlarged and it was only because my brother had to admit himself to hospital in Florida a couple of years ago because he couldn’t pee – because of his enlarged bladder – that I had my bladder measured. Fortunately.

So, Grant, chin up, good luck, and I hope you’re back on your feet pdq and that your QOL is not impaired.

And to all you other men over 40/50 have a bladder ultrasound as well.

Now I’ll read the e-zine.

Grant, you sent me best wishes in the newsletter a while ago, so Here's to a Steady and Happy Recovery for you, now we're in the same club.

Doing well here and having a wonderful time with all the tremendous support services that are provided at my (NHS) treatment centre. Hope it's the same for you.

Join me in looking forward to a great future.....

And just to reinforce your advice about checkups - yes, that's spot on. I never had any check-up, nor symptoms. Went to the doc about something else, which turned out to be trivial and not needing any attention, and he found the nasty surprise.
If the trivial thing had not occurred I'd still be none the wiser now......
And they estimate that mine started growing 25 years ago!

All Thanks to you and Susan for maintaining HU for all of us.
