Hello Tuley and welcome to this forum. I think you will find it full of good information and mostly well meaning folks who will help and support you any way they can.
You will also find that most of the guys and gals here are surgery people so don't be surprised at some negative reaction to your comment about surgery...especially from someone just arriving. The surgery vs. radiation/other treatment debate is an ongoing one here and you might find it interesting to scroll back thru some of the previous discussions on the subject. In any case, though, you are certainly entitled to your opinion on the subject.
I also think "Invasion of the Prostate Snatchers" is an excellent book and I now recommend it along with the more traditional Walsh and Strum books on PCa. Together I think they provide the reader with a pretty full view of the subject.
Pleae keep coming back and let us know some more specifics and how you progress in your decision making.
