I was taking to someone called catcrap on chat who is worried sick about his/her father.  I was trying to explain how to post here to get some help and the darn thing timed out and I lost him/her.  I hope cat can find his/her way here to get some help from you fine folks.
 
I'll check back again in chat hoping that cat has found his/her(!) way back.  Cat needs some help.
 
Regards,
 
Bill
August of 2006, PSA up to 4.2 from 2.7 one year ago. 
October free and total PSA 12% free and 5.0 total.
A month, or so later, 4.7.
Late in the year decide on Image Guided IMRT.
Begin 43 treatments on January 23, 2007 and finish on March 23.
 
Wow, almost two years behind.  I had a typical radiation bounce that
scared me, but it seems to be ok.  PSA is about 1.0 which is ok for
a rad guy at this stage of the game.
 
Got my FAA medical certificate back four months after starting my
treatment.  It's still a First Class, just jumping through a few hoops.

Part of the problem is that I'm barely computer literate, but I'll try.

jetguy, if they can find and figure out chat, they should be able to come here with little problem. I'll watch for them here and in the chat room as I am able.
