Hi Everybody. I am Ron in Los Angeles, California. 60 years strong. I just joined this forum moments ago. Not knowing how to post to "ALL
" I just clicked this post to post on. So I will need a tad bit of your help with this message board if you please? Thank you very much
I had my prostate removed June 20th this year. W0W! That was 18 days after I had carpal tunnel surgery. Double W0W! From the time I was told I had cancer, things went so fast, I really did not have a chance to figure out how I should feel or in the future what I should expect to feel? I am glad to report I was informed that it was 100% removed, however I will go back to the Dr. Tuesday to get my PSA level results. Keep em crossed for me please. Thanks. I had the best of care in surgery, I had the #2 prostate surgen in the USA and they flew in another surgen from Duke University to assist him. So I had no concerns about who was doing what. I am at the point to where I would like to share and hear from all that would like to share back about the PROSTATE cancer issues and all. I have not yet posted a profile, but will for sure explore this board to find out where to do so. Not wanting to be long winded my first time out I say thanks now and am for sure looking forward to meeting all of you.
I want to welcome you to a wonderful site. There isn't a member here I regret meeting. I started this thread for you so that others can welcome you as well. Good luck in your upcoming tests. Stay well and stay positive!
