Drug companies make a profit but create products that improve quality of life and life spans.
Some doctors, hardly all, make great livings. As they should! Every medical professional I have met has had wonderful empathy. I believe they are passionate about
what they do.
Oncas - I am sorry about
your pathology. I think that you will find many people in your same shoes on this site and on Yana who have been fighting a strong battle for many years already. I am sure they will be able to help and inspire you. Good luck.
Clocknut - I think this disease changes us for the better in many respects. Perhaps not our health, but I think it puts "stuff" in perspective and allows us to see life, companionship and emotions in a far deeper and sensible way. It is also understandable to be angry at times and for that anger to translate into less than productive behavior. But that's true of almost everyone before PCa anyway.
My biggest fear of leaving this country is leaving its medical professionals and facilities. And I grew up with socialized medicine and loved it btw.
