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.
Since this is an International Forum, please specify your location in your post.
I was 59 when I was diagnosed on August 30, 2007 with PCa - Grade 3, Gleason Score 6, Staged T1c. I chose Brachytherapy but it was overnight decision. I took 6 months before I made my decision since there were so many choices from waiting since my urologist told me I would have at least 15 years without doing anything. I chose to do something. I am cancer free today!
Joe, I am sure by now you have made a decision on your treatment plan. Your gleason score is the same as mine was. If you would like to email me please do so.
