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 it has been two years since my husbands diagnosis and his prostate removal. He is just getting over the loss of his sister to cancer after a 11 year battle with stomach cancer. He is getting his psa taken this coming thurs and both of us are understandably scared. Its like when you have so many hard things happen to you you almost expect the worst what can I do to ease both of our anxiety
It is never easy waiting for that PSA result. You've already dodged the one in a thousand type of PC that just can't be stopped since your husband is still alive.
Now the next worse case is having to get salvage treatment of radiation and ADT sometime in the future. Salvage and ADT seem very minor compared to the prostatectomy. If you just accept that that will happen, and maybe it won't, then that worry will fade away (almost) and you can start worrying about some other problems in your life. PC is extremely unlikely to kill your husband.
