I just returned from a PCa support group session at the Baltimore Washington Medical Center in Glen Burnie, Md., and wanted to recommend finding local support groups. They can be very helpful, especially if chaired by a urologist or some other knowledgeable person as this one is. In fact, the urologist is himself a prostate cancer survivor - prostatectomy at age 48, 7 or 8 years ago.
If there isn't one near you, you might consider starting one up with the support of a local urologist to answer questions and get the ball rolling.
The group I meet with has one hour sessions the second Monday of each month. The moderator told us that, beginning Jan 2010, we will be having guest speakers. The goal is to be the best support group in the area.
Just a thought and another tool for dealing with the bumps and ruts in the road.
