As many of you know, on August 13th Tommy had his prostate removed due to cancer..It was in a small part of his prostate but doctor suggested the total removal to prevent the spreading of cancerous cells.
TODAY!! October 9th!!! Tommy got his blood test results and he has a clean bill!! NO CANCER!! PSA level=0
This is the best news ever!! We are so happy for Tommy and Lisa.
They have BOTH had the MOST positive attitudes through all of this. Tommy has been playing his drums like there’s no tomorrow and Lisa has been right there by his side!! All they can do is look totally forward now and get on with their lives…and a happy one it will be
Please guys go and get a prostate exam and get your PSA (prostate-specific antigen) levels checked!
Early detection is very important!!

Way to kick cancer’s ass like we knew you could Tommy. After the untimely passing of Eyehategod drummer Joey Lacaze, it’s encouraging to see a positive story regarding the drummer of a New Orleans staple sludge band.
