This is from the McDougal Newsletter. He is an MD with a position on health which is attached to diet. Interesting reading. I am still glad I was diagnosed and went through with  my Da Vinci surgery.
Keep well,

Age 64. Diagnosed with Pca January 2009.
PSA 5.6, Gleason 3+3=6, T1c
TRUS biopsies of prostate left adenocarcinoma of prostate involving part of 1/4 biopsy fragments, less than 10% of the surface area involved, CT scan clear.
Treatment choice:
Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy - September 29/09. 
Pre-op PSA down to 5.28 which I attribute to visualization techniques and a new vegetarian diet.
Robotic Prostatectomy - 09/29/09, back home 10/02/09.
Pathology - 10/14/09  Gleason Score remained at 3+3 = 6 as it was when originally diagnosed. There were no positive margins. Tumors were found in both lobes and involved 3-5% of the prostate. There was no Seminal Vesicle, Perineural, Lymphovascular or Lymph node involvement, and the bladder neck was also cancer free. 
10/16/09 - 3-4 pads a day and working on pelvic floor exercises as prescribed.
10/16/09 - Zip, nada
State of mind:
Excellent - always positive.
