0.1 was the latest PSA reading, all good. Dr. Reza continues to be very pleased with my health. Glad I dropped some lbs that I gained while on the medication. Next visit, 12/31/12

3rd Anniversary - surgery

It was 3 yrs ago the fine folks at Duke Cancer Center went in and took out the cancer. Thank you Dr Moul and staff. I go for a PSA check on August 13, hopefully it stays at 0.0

Down 21, more to lose

Back before I was diagnosed, I weighed in around 172...then the cancer came. My weight ballooned while I was on hormone therapy and I got as high as 203. The tough part was because the medication caused so much fatigue, I had a helluva time getting moving. Even then my Dr. Said I would have a tough time losing the weight until after I was off. Fast forward to last Oct, I took the last of my cancer meds on 10/15/11 and started Weight Watchers on Dec 3rd at 202.6 pounds. Today I weighed in at 181 and my mission is to keep the steady progress and get down to 170. So far, so good. Hell, I feel as good as Charles Barkley!

Still boring

Visited the oncologist this week and the PSA came back at 0.0.

It's been 6 months since I took the last Casodex and 12+ months since my last shot of Lupron.
The meds were a bitch to be on but they did the trick. Cancer is in remission.

I've also started losing some of the 30+ pounds I gained since getting diagnosed 3 yrs ago.
Down 18 lbs with 12-15 more to go.

My energy is good, hot flashes are gone....hell, my blood pressure was 97/64, I think hats the lowest it's been in 3 yrs.

Yeah, it's good to be a boring patient.

Thanks to everyone for your support.

Until next time

Home PC is screwed up

For some reason I cannot log in and I'm horrible at remembering to post with my iPad.

I guess I'm a lousy blogger

last day in the land down under

it's friday morning, 8:30 in Melbourne, AU and it's been awesome!

the people in Australia are incredibly kind, accommodating and a get on real well with everyone.

Wish I had a couple of extra days to explore now that I kind of know the area and some people I could hang with.

Definitely will be coming back even though it's a long way.

I know, it's been a while....

sorry about that, had to get some things in order.
Left Convio after 8 years, it was a great run and time for a new chapter.

Right now, I'm down in Melbourne, Australia at 'Induction' with Aconex.
I've worked for a few fortune 200 companies and some start-ups and Aconex, by far, has the best onboarding experience for new employees.

First class company, people are down to's awesome.

I promise not to be a stranger.

hope all is well in your world
