In another thread, lookin said:
Just found your site today when looking up Prostate Transplants. Diagnosed in May '09, Gleason 6, PSA 5, TC1, 6 out of 12 samples are positive with <5%. Trying to decide what type of treatment to take Radiation or Surgery. Spoke to Radiologist and my DR who does
open. He referred me to a Robotic surgeon with whom I will speak to in a couple of weeks. I did active surveillance for 3 months and almost forgot I had PC. A visit to my Dr a month ago and he suggested HT. Now I think about
it everyday and think of either stopping the HT or pulling the trigger earlier than later. This is why I googled Prostate Transplants and came to your site. I will also go to a local support group in a couple of weeks as well.
BTW, I enjoyed your site and your good humor. Thanks
