    Prostate Cancer Survivor... So Far Part Ii

    Eventually I moved to acceptance and then exploration.  It took about another month.  I'm a smart guy, I tend to distrust everybody and insist on doing research myself, which I am good at... So I started studying about prostate cancer and about surgery, and radiation.  I...

    Prostate Cancer Survivor

    On January 2nd 2004 my doctor called to tell me that my biopsy was positive for prostate cancer. I also was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer later in the year, but that is another story. I chose to have a prostatectomy. The cancer was encapsulated and had not spread to any other...

    I Refused Prostate Surgery

    If I believed doctors I would have already been dead three times, so maybe this event is different. But I would rather die that have my prostate completely removed. On a scale of 0 to 7, mine was 4, and a doctor, later his boss, told me surgery was the only option. Since I flat...

    Intimacy Lost.

    I have been with him since 2000. He is a widower, whose wife had just passed, and I had just left my ex husband and father of my three oldest children. He is a bit older,  I being 25, and he was 45 when we got together, which was great. He was responsible, yet fun, and we share...

    Have had elevated PSA numbers

    since 2006. The rectal biopsies I underwent in 2006 and 08 found nothing. This year my PSA jumped to 15-16. This month, a biopsy via the perineum found lots of cancer, albeit with a Gleason score of 3+3. A radiation oncologist just told me that my case is not suited for his art...

    Why I Chose Radiation over Prostate Surgery

    In late 2010, based upon higher than normal PSA numbers, my family physician suggested I meet with a Urologist. Further testing by my Urologist led to a biopsy in early March... a none-too pleasant experience with a great deal of pain, swelling, a visit to the emergency room...

    Several years ago during a routine blood workup for my annual physical my doctor told me my PSA was high, it was around 9. He told me to see a urologist. It was the first physical I'd had for a couple of years. Normally I go every year, but I had let it slip. A week later the...

    To Late

      Hi all, firstly I'm not seeking or asking for sympathy. I'm quietly resigned to my fate. The cancer was left undetected for to long and has spread to other vital organs (without going into too much detail). Radium treatment and chemotherapy haven't been real successful...
