I'm a newby on this site (joined 4/19/08) and this is my second post. I've found lots of great info here but I haven't found anything on post operation diets.
I understand there is no definitive cause of PCa...certainly heredity is a big factor. However, many things point to modern diets with lots of fats, sugars, etc. and low in vegies and fruit, as well.
Diet seems to be the one thing I have control of with this problem. Does anyone have a recommended diet, monthly menu, etc. they would like to share?
