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.

Well I have finally been able to devote a goodly portion of my time to the above project. I am about half way through the 1385 stories. There should be many matters to discuss when my paper is available for everyone to peruse. My biggest challenge was categorising risk from each member's story. I utilised the Australian Clinical Guidelines for that purpose.
The paper I feel, will be a good testimony to Terry's memory. It will be a purely factual data analysis and will not contain any commentary from me whatsoever. Hopefully it will be a useful tool for newly diagnosed men.
Mark I will email you a draft when I am close to the release candidate. Needless to say, you will have the final word on the published paper.
Hi Walt, the analysis is now complete and ready for release. It should make for some very interesting reading.
Mark indicated to me last week that he was considering where the paper should appear on this site. I have not heard back from him this week. Should it not be possible to host the paper on this site, I could of course make it available to members directly, the logistics of which I would have to investigate.
Hi Kevin and my apology for the angst caused. If you wait a few days the analysis will be available. The link that Mark has provided is for an unedited draft only. A bit of a cockup has occurred. I will forward Mark the completed paper in a few days when I return home.
