A.S. Face 0724: Mal Maclean
Hello my name is Mal Maclean i’m 63 years and live in South Shields. England.
I started getting pain in my hips at 19 years, i went to hospital and an x-ray revealed A/S as a result my doctor sent me for an intense 1 week course of radiotherapy which only made me feel sick.
It was painful in the early years but i’ve always kept myself fit.
I’m still working in the offshore industry in the North Sea and feel ok.
I was getting an uncomfortable ache in my aortic area but an MRI scan showed that i was all clear. The only problem i have is tenderness in my bladder area and the urgent urination sensation which i’m putting down to as A/S as i’ve had PSA and cyscopic checks or it maybe old age!
My physical condition is good and if anyone who has recently been diagnosed i would like to speak with them to reassure them that there is life after A/S
Regards Mal Maclean
