I have been fighting prostate cancer for five years and it has spread to my lungs and liver. They discovered earlier this year that spread to my brain. I suffered agonising headaches and a marked deterioration in my ability to speak and think.
It was discovered by my oncologist Professor Jonathan Waxman after a CT scan.
He was recommended to me by radiologist Dr Nicholas Plowman.
I was operated on immediately. The operation took six hours. I spent a week in hospital, then a week recuperating, then two weeks having radiation treatment at the Cromwell Hospital. I have also had a blood transfusion at the Hammersmith Hospital to treat anaemia, and scans and follow-up consultations with Mr Bullock.
Too soon to tell but I feel much better. My intellectual faculties are back to normal.
