    Experience with Prostrate Cancer

    Go easy the next step is go see a urologist, then there is another investigation a TRUS trans rectal ultra sound and biopsy. The renal ultra sound and 24 hour BP monitors are not routine for high PSA, you must have high blood pressure The PSA level relates to size of prostate, it being high could possibly be due to large prostate. May just be a case of keeping an eye on it, maybe down the track may need channel widening TURP trans urethral resection prostate. I had my PSA level checked before Christmas, I didn't ride a bike for over a week beforehand. My level was above the middle of normal for my age, so I've been advised to recheck in 5 years. Thinking about you mate and hoping everything turns out OK

    The Mental Health thread

    I've been at bit down since I went to BBQ on Saturday and heard what someone was saying about me "you can't come back to work after you've had to wear a nappy" The truth is (as you can see from photos from earlier post) I kept taking nappy off even when I was still in intensive care. I was two months in hospital and had to relearn how to walk again coordination and balance were the issue I fell out of a wheel chair once. The physios told me only to walk on level ground and not to run. So I ran the Coastal Classic (see MTB/off-road ) I found the story of Tricia Meilli the Central Park jogger truely inspiring " the confidence gained from a physical achievement can be transferred to other parts of life" Recovering from a traumatic brain injury is a long hard road some days I don't even want to get out of bed yesterday was one of those days until I went on trannies and read Flanman's post about his cousins cycling achievements. Thank you for giving me a needed boost.

    Thanks it was really good to see you and GregB and I didn't finish last. Onwards and upwards and a bit more time on the bike I'm going to run SMC half marathon on Sunday, the last time I ran this race a bus came through and I had to stop and I got beaten by willie but managed to tag along with Paul Every. Onwards and Upwards - and I hope Willie is there for a rematch

    Thanks Mick I didn't realise you came to see me, I don't remember. I still had PTA post traumatic amnesia. It lasted two weeks I think,I remember waking up in Liverpool hospital and thinking I was on a cruise liner. In May I watched the you tube story about Tim Don The man in the halo, I was in the garage going to do an indoor bike session but just sat and cried. Anyway he's just a winging Pom he only broke his neck in one place I broke mine in seven(they were all stable and mended without issue) but it's a good story
