swimguychicago saidBTW, prostate cancer is very treatable.
True, if detected early enough, before it spreads. Prostate cancer alone cannot kill you - the prostate isn't a vital organ and you can survive without it, and the cancer there usually grows very slowly.
The problem is when it metastasizes (spreads) throughout the body, causing fatal things like bone cancer, and cancer of vital organs, such as the liver.
That's what happened to my late Father, and why I was in near panic when I was diagnosed with an advanced and fast form of prostate cancer. I'm still being checked to watch for cancer elsewhere. But the prostate cancer itself seems to have been beat. YAY!
Anyway, a little detour from the thread topic, prostate cancer having been mentioned. And I'll also happily say that my testosterone is continuing to rebound on its own, following cessation of Lupron treatment to suppress it, since testosterone accelerates prostate cancer.
I'm back to masturbating at least once a day, sometimes twice (at 63!), after a long spell when I had no interest. And I positively assaulted my husband last night, until he begged me this morning to stop, he couldn't take another round.
I just love what testosterone does to me, and hated when I had it suppressed. So I can endorse treatments that restore it to normal, healthy levels. We're men, and testosterone is part of what we are.
