Happy New Year! Hopefully, this year will be a bit better than last.
The holidays were generally good for me with the exception of catching a stomach bug that was going around. Let’s just say that stress incontinence was the least of my worries for about 30 hours beginning at 6:00 AM on Monday, 26 December. At least mine waited to kick in. My sister and brother-in-law suffered through it beginning Christmas Eve, and my nephew’s step son fell victim to the bug on Christmas day.
Later this week I get my blood drawn for my one-year PSA test. I’ll get the results on 19 January, so keep your fingers crossed. I hope that I won’t get as worked up about this round of tests as I did for the six month test back in August. I’m sure that I will for a little while. I mean, really, if the PSA comes back showing something, then that means the cancer is elsewhere–bones or organs–and that will be much more problematic to treat.
I’m beginning to think that I’m about as good as I’m going to get when it comes to the stress incontinence. I just haven’t noticed any real improvements since the last posting or two. I’ll talk to the surgeon about it when I get my results.
It’s not that it’s all that bad… But it’s enough of a nuisance to frustrate me. Somedays are nearly perfectly dry; and then there’s the off day where a pad might have been needed. Unfortunately, I can’t predict how the day will go. It just happens.
So that’s about it. Look for a special post next week with the PSA results.
