    Cheers guys😊
    I should run a pole asking what will be released first , me or Pacer LoL.

    I must be a age thing , I’m 60, as my Dr ordered some blood tests about 2 Years ago that said that I was in the range for it, but I brushed it off and never followed up with a specific prostrate test ( only stupid reason is I absolutely hate blood tests, I nearly pass out every time, it’s not a needle thing)

    They gave me two shots in the gut to lower my testosterone and all the pain went within a day, which was good.
    Still got a bone scan test in a couple of hours and some biopsy due whenever, wish they would tell me as I think that will be the last test.
    Then I suppose they’ll work out a treatment plan.
    I got some good news from the bone guy yesterday about my leg - hip saying than with drugs and radiotherapy the bone - damage should repair, which tbh has been my biggest concern, as I didn’t fancy myself as needing crutches or like to get around, I was told jogging is no longer on the cards but ok to cycle 😀
    I’ve just been looking up medical marijuana in Australia to cover nausea from treatment( I’ve seen first hand how bad that can be ),it’s in very early stages of availability here, and looks stupidly expensive Aus $150-$300 per month for certified and consistent strength oil.
    I suppose there is always a more unreliable source🤪 but I’d rather not smoke it tbh as smoking it doesn’t last as long as ingested .

    Very early days with this, I’m optimistic as I’m feeling better already, I suppose I’ll have to wait and see just how bad it is and just what prospects I have.
    **** happens 🤔
    If your hitting 50 ish get your Dr to do a blood test for it, and follow up unlike me, if they catch it early you should have no problem treatment, unlike me leaving it go find the leaky tap has flooded the basement situation 😂

    Thanks.

    I've been in hospital for a week and just got discharged with my papers.

    After reading them it seems things are much much worse than I thought.

    I'm basically riddled with cancer in my spine, head, ribs, hips, pretty much everywhere according to this report, talk about a shock

    I start Radiotherapy next Thursday for 5 treatments, and have to visit oncology to sort when I start Chemo the same day.....for how long?
    Will Chemo help ?......if I posted my discharge papers and you read them you would probably say No.

    The bit that worries me the most now is the report from the MRI scan of my skull [I spend 4.5 hours having a full body MRI scan, scary], it basically says I'm likely to suffer more issues like I have of lost hearing, eyesight, speech over time.
    And seeing how progressed it is, that might not be far off as it's already effected me.

    I don't want to go out a blind, dribbling, speechless vegetable.
    I won't know what the results of any treatment will be until Feb 2021, but I am no longer optimistic, and neither is my sister in-law who knows about this stuff, and broke it to my brother when I sent her a copy of the report....shell shocked I think you could say he was.

    Time for me to quickly make up a Bucket list it would seem.

    It's been nice racing and talking with the forum members over the years, I hope to do a bit more of it before I kick the bucket.
    I just thought I'd mention it if you suddenly never hear from me again, at least you will have known what had happened to me.

    I might get a AG racing suit made and be cremated with my NegCon in my hands and wearing my VR helmet LOL.
    Best way for a Wipeout tragic to go out I think.

    As for PACER.......well Microsoft better get their crap together so PACER does get released and I do eventually get to play it.
    I'll come back and haunt them if I don't

    Thanks habib.

    In all honesty, it's not really bothering me.

    It bothering me that it's bothering my family more than anything.

    Western culture always has a had weird disconnection with death.
    It would rather try to scientifically disprove it and try to overcome it, rather than embrace it for it's inevitability

    Death is the last part of life, it's not like it's something you can avoid, and I've always been well aware of that since I was a kid traveling around the world with my parents and watching different cultures, sort of like the way Indians look at death, they just don't worry about it because they know there is more than just this perceived momentary mortal existence we have of it.

    Were are all light !


    EDIT: R8 issued a bit of news regarding the delay on their twitter feed.

    Shouldn't be long now......LOL

    Sorry to hear, blackwiggle, I dont know you but your nickname has been a familiarity to me for 14 years (we joined same month, same year) and Ive enjoyed reading you, and still will.

    As eLhabib says, stay strong regardless of what happens. I love that youre so open and at peace with it, and that youre letting us know. Fly high

    I can only repeat what has already been said; there are a few names on this board that kept it going through all these years, to this very day and yours is one of them truly! Stay strong mate!

    In light of such circumstances mere words sound so shallow. I admire that you take it as strong as you do. Im not esoteric at all, but I believe positivity might have a, well, positive influence on your bodys persistence. I already read your comment in the Pacer group on PS and had to drop a comment here. My thoughts are with you. All the best, even if it seems to be a big fight.
