I was diagnosed with stage 3 prostate cancer (T3) and had the open RRP over
5 years ago. Had SRT 3 years ago and I'm still around and kicking. So, just
because you are stage 3 doesn't mean the game is over......not by a long shot. I
was relatively lucky in that I have virtually no SE to date. Hope to be around
for a good many years to come.
Never give up hope.
All the best to you.
