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.

Re: When are you out of the woods?

David:

Based on my interactions on various sites like YANA, its my impression that a recurrence after 8 years is not all that uncommon. If that's what is happening, you are again confronted with a series of very difficult decisions.

-- A meeting with your oncologist is a logical first step.

--What your oncologist recommends will provide you with direction for whatever research effort you undertake.

--I have documented my experience with PCa recurrence in an on-line journal some of which you may find helpful; see http://protondon.blogspot.com/ If you decide to have a look I suggest you start with the entry titled "To My Family, Friends and Cyberspace Buddies."

Best wishes Don O.
