Re: husband diagnosed advanced prostate cancer

Nury,

So sorry to hear your news. I am sure that all of us who have been diagnosed with this disease share your feelings, but you have to take a deep breath and learn all you can.

The first thing is that although there are many variations of this disease it seems your husband may have one of the more aggressive forms. That's the bad news. The less bad news is that modern medications and radiation therapies can help to manage even aggressive and advanced disease for a considerable time - many years in some cases.

The way I approached my diagnosis was to try and understand as much as I could about the disease and because there was such confusing information, I set up the YANA You Are Not Alone Now site. Go along there and read the information. That will hopefully help you understand the options available to your husband a little more.

As you go along you will find that you have specific questions. Come back here and ask them - we'll try our best to answer them.
