Just had my biopsy done a week ago and am still doing my homework. Ran across this great looking site with what appears to be some wonderfully nice people.
I have spent some time reading through the threads here and will be reading many more. I’m finding a bunch of great information.
I’m currently facing the old dilemma – Surgery versus Radiation. My Urologist has recommended the de Vinci procedure and from what I’ve been reading it sounds good to me. I'm about 98% certain I'll be doing the de Vinci.
