I found this site and I'm sure it's old hat to most, but I found a lot of good information here:
 
 
I didn't like reading about:

"Late Stage General Symptoms

Significant pain in one or more bones may indicate the occurrence of metastases (spread of disease). This chronic pain occurs most often in the spine and sometimes flares in the pelvis, the lower back, the hips, or the bones of the upper legs. It may be accompanied by significant unexplained weight loss and fatigue."

...cause I've had that for over a year.  I am so nervous about my meeting on Thursday.  Most time I can say hey, I've got to put it out of my mind for now and enjoy the moment. buit there are sometimes when I can't stop thinking about it (like 11:00 on a Saturday night!  What the heck am I doing here?)

If you are an honest gl6, most aren't, your chances of mets are pretty slim. even a 7 would be hard pressed, but may be you have a 40 psa , we wouldn't know ,Everything you feel that isn't quite right , you assume its the cancer. You know something it ain't. Its normal to feel that way, but you now what , its also normal not to feel that way. I think that it should be mandatory for posters asking questions to make a signature, its not that hard to do and it sure helps for people to answer questions. no offence to youGl 6 , people are funny thats all.

If you are posting using the "Quick Reply" then the signature won't show.
