Here is the web link to the piece written by Terry H. and is good info for people to realize concerning PCa in general.  Yananow.net also has a great piece called PSA101...a must read for newly diagnosed. Here is the link:
 
 
My own 2 cents as to further elephants in the room, without a long discourse and less rant and raving (at this juncture): question everything and always, you will see why soon enough. cool

Sorry must have fat fingered keyboard when making the post, got double vision or better yet it was the ADT past drug therapies causing a memory lapse. Got this post twice. Deja Vu. Or we could use this one for replies....with your second opinions?

Very good article Zufus. My own preference related to death and dying is that we each pass on in a very individual manner with some commonalities. I guess I love some mystery to life and death. Suprise me! Thanks for the post. Good read.

Another feather in the cap for yananow and Terry H. for the full monte and gammit on PCa issues and access for the world to read and look over. Met Terry on the net way back in 2002 sure glad I did too. Info back then is scarce compared to today.

Thanks Michael...lets hope we can all live la vida loca as long as possible.
