Tomorrow is the day my husband goes for his surgery. He will have the Pernieal Prostatectomy. Of course as everyone has seen, I'm worried but I know that a positive attitude is everything. This was a quick decision for us but our biggest concern was getting the cancer out and everything else would fall into place. My husband, Kent, is only 51 and I'm 49. We still have a daughter at home. This kind of thing was never expected as I'm sure with most of us. I never expected that I would receive so much love and support from this site. Some of you have been where we are now and some are still struggling with what to do. There are so many stories. My husband and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking your time to share and help.
I will write as soon as I am able to let everyone know how things are going.
