Just to say that my OH is cured, so we have a great deal to be thankful for, especially bearing in mind what some others are suffering. We feel for you, if that is any help whatsoever.
Only one other thing to mention : it was so distressing on top of everything else, that at the time we did not mention it, but because of the "extraneous equipment" necessarily worn post-operatively, and possibly because this had to be endured during the summer months, OH contracted E-Coli!!!! Apparently this can happen despite being scrupulously clean and showering religiously every morning. Having lived in Africa for many years, this put the Fear of God into us, but after a strenuous dose of antibiotics, these knocked the dreaded E-Coli on the head. If anyone finds themselves in a similar position, don't panic as it is not quite as awful as it sounds and can be treated. So roll on 2013 and with that in mind, our thanks once again for the sympathetic support from the moderators of the forum :
A Happy and Healthy New Year to everyone.
Happy 2013 to everyone
I am sure you would now like to put the "Big C" as goldenoldie calls it out of your mind but could I ask a favour? If you would continue to subscribe just to the forum on Prostate Cancer (now it has its own section), then you would be notified of any posts coming in to that forum only. You may well be able to use your annus horribilis to help someone else.
All the very best for 2013 and may you be back enjoying those walks together!!!!
We are here for anyone, anyone at all who wishes to communicate with us, who needs support, or who needs the benefit of our [dreadful] experiences. Will subscribe certainly. A Very Happy New Year - no longer annus horribilis one hopes.
