I feel crapped on sometimes for getting PC at 58. I cringe when guys like you get it at 40. Thanks heavens for PSA testing. You should be testifying in congress or be on Good Morning America, to help men realize the threat of PC.
Thank goodness you have done so well. I hope your age does help you recover most everything you've lost quickly.
Somehow we have to get this word out to the world. PSA testing is a must!
Thanks for sharing with us.
