Prostate Cancer Survivors






Return to Website

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: Just Got The News

TELL YOUR WIFE!! She is as much a part of this as you are. It will effect her as much as you. Wives can be a great help for husbands going through this - if you let them. Probably not such care free days ahead but at this stage there is a great possibility you can successfully treat this. Be strong, PAY ATTENTION, and accept help when it is offered. Jon R.

Thank You.

Re: Just Got The News

Age is the deciding factor here, Gleason 7 3+4 have reasonable outcomes against 4+3,
staging also critical in deciding what path to take, in my case 54 with stage T3a G7 3+4 meant one option only get rid of the prostate, in majority of cases once at pathology the prostate under examination are graded UP. It is true you've three options Surgery, Radiation, ADT combined. Radiation as a first choice means Surgery out of the question if unsuccessful keep that in mind with staging and Gleason.

Tell your wife, tell a friend! It will a relief just to get it out. Don't rush to make a decision, you have allot of time to do your research. And remember you' ve probably caught this early which is good news!
