Mariners TV broadcaster Dave Sims is recovering from surgery to remove his cancerous prostate Jan. 15 and is recovering well at home in New York. He hopes to to make it to spring training in Arizona soon.
“I had no symptoms at all,” Sims said. “We finished the baseball season and I felt like a million dollars. I was working out like a mad man, I felt great, and then this happened.”
Sims, 62, said a high PSA level was detected during an exam before Thanksgiving. He said that being good shape and early detection were critical factors in the successful operation and fast recovery.
“We found it pretty early and were pretty aggressive and got it out of there,” Sims said. “Timing played into it. I’m grateful beyond words and moving forward. My wife (Abby) has been an absolute rock. She’s always been the MVP in the family, but she’s gone above and beyond with this.”
