Prostate cancer
 
I don't know if anyone here has dealt with this but biopsy done couple weeks ago had 10 out of 12 cores show moderate cancer, am going to have it removed in a couple of weeks, Doc says I should be back to riding in three months, if ct and bone scans show negative. Just trying to ride now as much as I can till operation. Any advice would be helpful.

Keep your head up, I'm pulling for you. Good thing is the burgh has excellent doctors and hospitals. Unfortunately my family knows first hand. With a good attitude and a fighting will things will be fine. Take advantage of this goofy western pa weather and forget it all and ride. Dave

Many Relatives Battled Prostrate Cancer
 
I haven't had to fight it yet ( but if genetics play in, I'll likely have to) and they all said don't move, lift etc any sooner than the Doc says. They all thought they were ready to move more but they weren't.
And above all, stay positive, in all likelyhood it will only be a small bump in the road of life. And dealing with it is way better than ignoring it.

It will be a temporary pause in life. Everything is on your side. Technology and medical science wield a brutal sword against cancer now. You have the advantage. Focus your energy on keeping yourself in peak tune both physically and mentally. Crush and ruthlessly disregard anything that is negative or not positively productive in your life. Genuinely embrace and bask in the things that make you happy. Try stuff. And when you're waiting to get back on the bike, work on it in the meantime. The linkage won't grease itself.

All the best. Try get some cbd oil

I just heard a very interesting podcast on adventure rider radio yesterday about the correlation between blood flow in your perrineum (between the meat and two veg and the o) and prostate cancer-seems bike seats are not designed to help

Here is the link to the podcast (second segment) https://itunes.apple.com/za/podcast/...=2&i=380737138

Keep us posted on your progress. I said a prayer for you this morning.

Thank you for your prayers, I'll keep you all posted on this new adventure in my life. I'll beat this and be riding again this summer without a doubt!

flognart 02-09-2017 02:34 PM

You got that right, but I'll be back for sure!

Here is the link to the podcast (second segment) [url]https://itunes.apple.com/za/podcast/...=2&i=380737138 I think that its a sound idea swazi matt I think in my time off I may construct a seat so that it has a groove that was mentioned and see how it does work, In my older years I tend to be a sit down rider (all the years in the mines didn't help out my knees much) so thank for the good wishes and the tip.
