              Been some time without an update,

              So, one year after ending BEP x 3, some good news with the only visible lymph node further shrinking to 4 mm from 7 mm. Markers still normal.

              I've been hypogonadic at two blood tests (with symptoms), but the last one came all normal for T and sex hormones and the symptoms disapeared without TRT.

              So, surveillance continues !
