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.
I hope you have read that being overweight will result in poorer outcomes for PC. I know how hard it is to drop a few pounds but you really need to put your focus on that area right now. For many people getting a cancer diagnosis is a big motivator to improve their overall health and may result in them living longer than they would have otherwise.
Thank you, Frank, for your comments. I know what you say is true. From diagnosis on June 30th to surgery on October 2nd, I lost approximately thirty pounds. I am continuing with the diet and have not varied even while recovering. I am hopeful that this will finally be the time that I take it off and keep it off.
