Your story is really UNBELIEVABLE to me. I never heard of anybody getting prostate cancer at 38, I thought I was way too young at 52. Sorry you are here but this is the best place for you. Lots of opinions here, lot's of info here for you to gather, everybody is very tolerant of each other's opinions. Hopefully guys like Ziggy, Tupak, and Oncas will see your post and respond to it. They have been down your road before and can give you good advice. Welcome aboard, and may you learn something of value to you at this site.................
