Hi, my name is arcticfox!

Hi,
I was diagnosed with metastatic prostate cancer two years ago, (prostate cancer diagnosis and removal four years ago.) I also have spinal stenosis, my spine is repeatedly fracturing and repairing. I am on ongoing immunotherapy injections to stave off the growth of my cancer. I am in constant pain but cannot undergo nerve blocking injections incase they mask the signs of spinal compression, (a side effect of metastatic prostate cancer.)
