This was a really good topic. Cancer is such a devastating disease. My husband had stage 1A lung cancer 2 years ago. He had half of his left lung removed and so far he has been doing fine. We changed doctors and he did alot of lab work. His PSA came back at 6.1. I thought it must of been some kind of lab error and it was repeated and came back 4.6. His urologist wanted to do a biopsy. I thought we just went through lung cancer this possibly can't be cancer again. He had a 25% of it being cancer. The biopsy showed adencarcinoma in 9 of 12 cores. It truly is shocking to hear the news "It is cancer." It is like a feeling that is indescriable. We decided if we got through lung cancer we could get through this. He had robotic radical prostatectomy last Monday and is having a slow recovery. We will get pathology report this Friday. My husband and I look at this as a journey through life. Cancer definitely changes your life. We now cherish everyday we are together and it has brought us closer than I have ever imagined. We have also met some truly caring and amazing doctors along the way. We are hoping for alot more happy years together.

Cupcake, welcome to HW. I am truly sorry that you and your husband have to now join the Prostate Cancer Forum

I can identify with what you and your husband are going through. My wife has been dealing with Multiple Myeloma Cance since Nov 2005 and I was diagnosed June 2009.

We also have experienced that new found closeness, love and enjoyment of being together. We provide strength, comfort and support for each other.

We believe that "Every Day is A Bonus" and we try to live it that way.

Our thoughts, prayers and blessings are with you and your husband as you travel life's journey.
