1st lockdown I lost a bit (of weight), 2nd and 3rd I gained it all back and more ... but not 28 lbs.  That's not to say much - I need to lose at least double that to get to anything close to a sensible weight.  Weight aside, things are fine.  I also nearly wrote 10 words!

Good on you, Russel. I'm still doing the 5:2 diet, today being a fasting day (ouch), I'm also doing the 100 push-ups a day for Cancer Research, which is hard work. Raised about £200 for them so far. Got my second covid jab today, at 11am, so I'm guessing the press-ups are going to be harder tomorrow. I remember last time my arm felt like when somebody gave you a dead arm at school, only it lasted all day.

My most recent scan showed swollen lymph nodes in my lungs, meaning the cancer may have spread. Got to have another scan in a couple of months to see for sure. Think I'm in for a rough ride, guys.

Bloody hell, Ed. Fingers crossed for you, buddy. Hope there's more smooth bits than rough bits on your ride, and a nice ending.

Thanks Del. Yep, staying positive and keeping fit. I think training up to the operation helped a lot with recovery. I stepped it up the week before. I'll try and keep it going as long as possible. Perhaps strangely, I'm still not scared. Glad about that -- just goes to show things could always be worse.

Doing 100 push-up a day in May for Cancer Research (no atheists in foxholes). Have done 1,800 so far this month :o and raised £210 for the cause. Wish me luck

Just popped in to say hi. Read your posts, Ed. That's tough for the cancer. How are you coping?

I used to do 50 press-ups every day from about 14 to 30 when first child was born and I either didn't have time or found lifting the kids up and down did as well. Now I can do the plank for 3 boring minutes but press-ups? 5 or 10 if I'm lucky.

Hi Jerry and Geoff -- nice to see folks dropping by still. I've been OK so far, thanks. Still feel the aftereffects of the operation some eighteen months on, now. Have just been told there are definite lesions on my lungs and have to go and take a lung function test ahead of an operation to remove the lesions. I'm guessing there will be chemo after that. Not looking forward to it. I feel a bit like I'm slowly being whittled away from the person I was to whatever's left after the next round, and the one after that. It's a bit daunting.

Seriously unimpressed with my doctor at the hospital. He rang the other day to say the scan results were clear. I sighed relief and asked again to be sure, "Ah," he says, the one in your prostate is smaller, from a grade 3 to a 2 and the nodes in your lungs are bigger than they were at the last scan." So far from being clear then, you twat, I felt like saying. It's since then, with no subsequent scan in-between that they've stopped calling them nodules and started calling them lesions. I don't trust them at all  :idiot:

Still, fuck it. I'll deal with whatever comes and I'll try to live my life as normally as possible. Worst part is I've got to tell the kids and my parents again. Hated that last time.
