Hey Gang,
 
Today (Pearl Harbor Day) is the fourth anniversary of my RRP.  Zero PSAs, no incontinence, great sex with Trimix.  QOL is better than before surgery.
 
I'm also a lung cancer survivor since June 2008.  Clean scans so far.  So I have so much to be thankful for.  This forum guided me through my PCa and what I learned here got me through LCa.
 
Thanks to all of you,
 
Jim
