Well Pauline, someone we know from a local support group said to us that Pete shouldn't have left having his blood test till now, he should have gone and had it done in January. But the only thing is, to find out the result he'd still have had to wait till he saw the consultant to get the flippin result since it wasn't from the GP. Or he could have made a GP appointment in 5 weeks time, to get a GP PSA blood test form, then another appt to get the blood taken then have to remember to ring in the weekly 2 hour slot the following week to get the damned answer.
It's really SUCH a lot of hassle to achieve such a simple thing - that it was so much easier just to leave it and hope for the best. I mean if it had shot up, he STILL wouldn't have been by the hospital any quicker.
