Saturday was my third birthday, the day I had my visit with DaVinci and had my prostate and cancer removed! I will have my PSA test in two weeks, and if it goes well, will only need to be checked every year. smilewinkgrin This forum helped me be able to cope during the dark days leading up to the surgery, and answered so many questions before and after. Thank you all for your support, and let's all help find a cure for this cancer!

Wow beachbum - 1 year ahead of me...running right behind you. Thanks for the post. These are the post that keep us moving on. So many time when guys get better they drop out of the board and we never hear again.
