I thought I was making a good recovery from a mysterious massive bleed following a prostate biopsy
However, a few days later, due to sore ribs when I lay down to sleep I checked myself back into hospital, last Sunday morning.

The doctors are now saying that I have a couple of small blood clots in my lungs (pulmonary embolism) and a mass on my left kidney which looks like a cancer.
