My Journey and Cure of Prostate Cancer

For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13

My 54th Birthday…………. Thanks Jesus Christ…….I am so thankful!

[I] am 54 today…. It’s Sunday morning and watching tennis on TV and drinking some coffee. I am playing tennis at 0700am today with my buddy Jeff. I AM going to beat him today!My daughter is singing at church today and my parents are coming to watch and we’re all going to a b-day lunch after the first service as my daughter has to again sing at 5pm.

I am really needing my left hip finally replaced. It’s just amazing how much you need your hip -especially in tennis! It’s nice to get all these “Happy Birthday” wishes from my Facebook and Linked In friends.

Most important of all, is how Blessed and thankful I am for Jesus Christ, my LORD and SAVIOR. I am a sinner and because he cared for me and went to the cross to shed his blood for me, I AM SO GRATEFUL. By his GRACE, I am forgiven. With my first PSA results, to the actual even finding out about the PC to begin with, to the Dr. Porter surgery, everything was a miracle for me and a chance for me to share my faith.

God Bless,
Brian 🙂

8 Weeks Post RP surgery

[W]ell it is hard to believe it’s been 8 weeks. Wow…………. time flies right by! I am doing pretty darn good. My only issue is my frequent urination. I swear that I am getting up at least 2 times a night and having to urinate 10-15 times a day, even if it’s just a few drops. I am not sure why? I am hoping that this too is a passing situation and part of the recovery process.

Tomorrow I will be 54 years of age. I am a Prostate Cancer Survivor and so fortunate to be here to write about it. Again, there’s no other way to explain the finding/removal and first PSA test revealing that the Gleason 9 was eliminated. There is a GOD and Jesus Christ is the ONLY reason for my miracles.

God Bless,
Brian 🙂

First PSA results POST Radical Prostitechomy surgery at 7 weeks

[M] results just arrived in the mail.

It was a PSA, Ultrasensitive W/O Serial (whatever that means!)

Results of test = <0.015 ng/mL From what I ready, it should be below 0.200 mg/mL I sent my results to my doctor on Friday... as well as today in an email. Hopefully, I am off to a good start of heading to undetectable. Brian 🙂 PRAISE THE LORD!!! I Just had a forum member reply to my posting about this: Congratulations ! You are off to a great start ! Yes, the < prefix denotes the reading was less than the test can detect..In other words, undetectable...it's party time ! Age now 74 . Diagnosed G-9 6/2010 RALP Sept 3 2010, pos margin, one pos vesicle nodes neg. Post Op PSA 0.9 SRT, HT. 2-15-'11 PSA <0.1 10/'11, <0.1 2/12, <0.1, 4/12 <0.1, 9/12, 0.8 3/13, 0.5 6/13, 1.1, back on HT. 5/16 stay the course, Lupron, Zytiga, PSA <0.1 10/16 no change <0.1

6 weeks today anniversary

[I] can’t believe it’s been 6 weeks to the day! I now need to schedule my first PSA test to hopefully get one of many “non-detectable” results. I will call Monday to get this scheduled. My energy is coming back strong as well as I am playing tennis 4 days a week again. My 40 and over 4.5/5.0 league is starting earlier this year, meaning early in 2017 so need to get the players ready for that.

I am still waiting to do a customer testimonial for Dr. James Porter, but his media guy hasn’t confirmed.

Overall, I can’t thanks JESUS CHRIST enough for saving me and for forgiving me of my sins. I am a sinner and by the Grace of GOD, he’s forgiven me! Amen!

Take Care!
Brian 🙂
