Merry Christmas to you Richard. I'm so glad you are on the other side of treatment and doing well. Also glad you stuck around. This blog has been a lifesaver for me. It still is as we continue our fight but we have found peace and are enjoying the good times that we still have.

1st MRI NOV. 5 2018--NO SIGN OF TUMER/GROWTH....2ND MRI--NO SIGN OF TUMER/GROWTH

a week after having completed my PSA and urine tests(5/22/18), i noticed blood in the toilet and completed the F.I.T--fecal immunochemical test.... I forgot to mail it in and drove to the VA and had them give me another one, did it and that afternoon i returned it...two days later i received a call to schedule a colonoscopy for June 04, 2018. results came back positive for a ployp that was excised and also a 4-5cm malignant growth on the dentate line of the anus--right smack in/around my spinchter muscle. T3N0M0...prognosis seems to be really good as it has not traveled nor gone into nodes. scheduled to start chemo/radiation with 5-FU and mitomyacin first 4 days and last 4 days using a PICC line.

AM NOT USING THE 5-FU....INSTEAD ITS CAPECITABINE 500MG
