As an athlete I know how important a strong mind and healthy body are. Teaching kids about saying NO to underage drinking is an important task, and together with @go_faar and their @ask_listen_learn program and Attorneys General from across the US, we have some great things coming your way next month.
The new generation is here! @Speedo @SpeedoUSA #Fastskin #TeamSpeedo #MadeforFastskin
Thanks to @craigmelvinnbc @hodakotb and the rest of the @todayshow crew for inviting us on the show to tell my story and raise awareness around Men’s health issues. #TodayShow #MensHealth #StandUpToCancer
Looking forward to visiting the @todayshow on @nbc tomorrow morning. I hope you can tune in! #Repost @nbcolympics ・・・ Olympian @nathangadrian joins the @todayshow for an exclusive interview - tomorrow morning on @nbc
As I had mentioned above, this story is far from over and I have a lot more to tell about the whole thing. But for now it is almost noon and I need to go to practice where I belong 🏊 💪🏽.
Happy Valentine’s Day to my rock! Life has been a bit crazy lately but everything feels alright when I am with you 😍.
It may not be much, but it was a start! It felt great to get back to the @calathletics weight room where I belong! They have all the recovery modalities I need including the best Physical Therapist in the world so I can get back in shape soon 💪🏽💪🏽. Through this entire experience I have to say, waiting on pathology/test results might just be the worst part. There is anywhere from 2-14 days (depending on the test) of not knowing whether you will be whisked away into treatment ASAP or that you are cancer free 🤷🏽♂️. The best way to deal with that, however, is to fight the urge to stay in bed with the curtains closed all day. So, we went to a great Super Bowl party yesterday and today we were cleared by my doctor to start getting back on track (slowly but surely).
It may not be 7000 meters of swimming but we walked over 7000 steps today! May have had to take a nap to rest up between my two walks but hey we are making progress. And doing a bit of EMS to do what we can to not lose all of my strength while I recover 💪🏽
Thank you to everyone for all your unbelievable support! Quick update: I underwent a laparoscopic RPLND procedure yesterday which means they took out some of my lymph nodes that the cancer may have spread to with the help of a robot 🤖. My doctor said it went well and my pathology report (which will tell us if it had spread) should be back in another week or so. Until then, we are going to do everything we can to get back to normal life as quickly as possible while staying well within my doctors’ parameters of course!
Life, like swimming the 100 free, can come at you hard and fast as you can’t always see who, or what, may be chasing you down. Recently, I went to the doctor as something didn’t seem quite right. At the very least, I still needed to get my flu shot so it couldn’t hurt. After a few tests and visits with a specialist, I unfortunately learned that I have Testicular Cancer. On the bright side, we caught it early, I have already started treatment and the prognosis is good. I will be back in the water in a few short weeks with my sights fully set on Tokyo! Along the way, I hope to share my journey in an effort to help break the stigma of discussing men’s health issues. I’ve realized that too often we tend to avoid these important topics, ignore the potential warning signs, and put off getting the medical help that we may need. As I told my family, I’ll be putting my public health degree to work a little sooner than I planned! But in all seriousness, I am keeping a positive attitude as cases such as mine are curable. I am extremely grateful for my family and friends, especially my wife, for their love and support. I am scheduled for surgery early next week and will provide an update soon. #menshealth #testicularcancer #standuptocancer

I have a busy couple of weeks coming up, but this weekend is all about the Golden Goggle Awards which is the USA Swimming Foundation’s Annual Fundraising Event. In addition to the live event on Monday, there is also a silent auction in which you can all participate. There are a ton of cool things you can bid on. Copy this link for more info: https://ngadrian.com/2B1drY6. (Also, I was nominated for an award with these three guys. Wish us luck!). #GoldenGoggles @usaswimming
The honeymoon went too fast! Back to the US tomorrow and back to real life!
