Thanks, Bronson, for sharing this article. I had a number of the symptoms (urinary urgency, incomplete emptying, frequent urination) but those can also just be signs of BPH, which is what I thought was going on.
I wish I had access to a program like that. I guess my continuing participation here reflects my personal recognition that I still have not really come to terms with what has happened to me. HW provides the support group for me. Just reading about what other guys are going through reassures me that others are dealing with, and generally overcoming, the emotional and physical consequences of being stricken with cancer.
Just last weekend, I was trying to be helpful to a friend who had just completed radiation treatment, and I still found myself choking up. It was embarrassing, because I was trying to be reassuring to him. That's become my barometer. Until I can talk about every aspect of this cancer experience without becoming emotional, I won't feel that I've fully come to terms with it or that I have "moved on." Maybe that never happens. I don't know.
