Friends actor battles cancer in stage 4
James Michael Tyler, who played Gunther on the Friends series, gave an interview to the Today Show program where he revealed a news that surprised all the public who follow him. The actor stated that he has been battling stage 4 prostate cancer since September 2018, when he was diagnosed through a routine exam.
The actor has gone through a long battle against this disease that has left him paralyzed in the lower part of his body and the possibilities are decreasing more and more, so he decided to speak for the program to make others aware of the risks of not going to time to the doctor.
“I knew there was something quite wrong there.”
According to Page Six, the actor related that the discovery of the disease occurred in 2018, when he was 56 years old and had gone to the doctor only to do a routine physical study, it was there that they realized that something was not going well and the doctor decided to do more tests, discovering the disease that afflicted him.
“I was 56 at the time and they test for PSA, which is a prostate specific antigen. That came back in an extraordinarily high number… so I knew immediately when I went online and saw from my blood test results that there was obviously something quite wrong there. Almost immediately, my doctor called me and said, ‘hey, I need you to come over tomorrow because I suspect you may have a pretty serious problem with your prostate,’ ”’Gunther’ commented.
“For my specific prognosis, it’s of course stage 4,” the Friends actor said of his cancer.
Tyler says that is how they learned about prostate cancer that was already in an advanced stage. Usually, when someone receives such a diagnosis, it is because it has already spread to other parts of the body and is called metastatic cancer.
“For my specific prognosis, it is of course stage 4, late stage cancer. So eventually, you know, it’ll probably finish me off, ”the actor told host Craig Melvin. Unfortunately, the cancer had spread to his bones and spinal column, subsequently affecting his lower body, preventing him from walking.
“Cancer mutated into the pandemic”
2020 brought a complicated situation for the actor, who was not only worried about the pandemic that was hitting the world, but about the constant treatment he was receiving to combat the disease, but due to an oversight on his part he missed an appointment with the doctor and when he was finally able to take it, they reported terrible news to him.
“I missed going to an exam, which was not a good thing. Then, the cancer decided to mutate at the time of the pandemic and thus progressed ”. The actor also commented that he is undergoing quite aggressive chemotherapy treatment, which leaves him lying in bed and has to move anywhere in a wheelchair.
The treatment that only worked for a year
But before knowing about the diagnosis where they informed him that the cancer had mutated, his doctors had decided to dabble in a treatment with hormone therapy, but this only worked in an incredible way for only one year and he could continue with his life as normal that it could.
“All I had to do was take a pill in the morning and at night, and boom, life was pretty normal… I felt good, honestly. I had no symptoms, I didn’t feel any symptoms. And it was very easy to regulate, “he told the morning Today Show.
