This forum is for the discussion of anything to do with Prostate Cancer. There are only four rules:
No fundraisers, no commercials (although it is OK to recommend choices of treatment or medical people based on your personal research; invitations to participate in third-party surveys are also acceptable, provided there is no compensation to YANA);
No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making
Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.

Hi Eddie and Carol, Harvey and Patsy,
And welcome to the wonderful site I thank my lucky stars I found 3 yrs ago when I was diagnosed (scary days).
Finding YANA was vital for me in deciding which way to go next. Having so many 'seasoned PCa fighters' on here is a blessing when you need advice from someone who REALLY knows what you're going through.
You might might the message forums here very useful in these early days.
Peter and Jack? Those updates look pretty good! Great news.
And Tom, finding a consultant you can actually have a few laughs with is a real bonus.
My own oncologist is a big, funny guy and so easy to get along with that I was able to relax and have some good ole discussions with him about exactly what I wanted next, not just what HE decided I should have next.
He was one of the minority I've found, who put you at ease and really do listen to your views and reasoning.
