"A STRANGE PLACE-PART IV"...T.R.HERBERT

The above article was recently published in full by "PAACT,INC" in their March "Choices" publication.

In the paragraph "Diversion To Consider The Partin Tables:", reference is made to Drs. Partin & Walsh at the "James Brady Urological Institute", Boston.

In fact, I had "RP" surgery performed in November, 1996 by Dr. Partin and the "Brady Urological Institute" is actually located at the "Johns Hopkins Hospital", Baltimore, MD.

Thank you for a most excellent article and I look forward to the remaining articles.

Re: "A STRANGE PLACE-PART IV"...T.R.HERBERT

I'll accept that I don't know my Baltimore from my Boston, but there are many sites that refer to

The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine,
The Johns Hopkins Hospital,
The James Brady Urological Institute

So who is to know who is correct. I find it amazing that Richard is the first of the thousands of people who have read my publication to spot this mistake. It will be corrected.

The PAACT organisation is serialising the booklet, which can be found in full at A Strange Place

Qs a matter of interest, I offered the booklet to all the major prostate cancer organitions - even offering to supply hard copies free of charge. Only PAACT accepted the offer.

All the best

IMHO, "A Strange Place" should be the first book handed to you by the urologist/doctor after diagnosis. Thank you.

How did your surgery go with Dr. Partin at Johns Hopkins? I am considering him. What side effects did you have and for how long?
Thanks,
