GOT MRI RESULTS TWO DAYS AGO.  AS YOU ALL STATED MRI NOTHING DIFFERENT SHOWED UP.  NEXT STEP IS SEEDS - EVEN THO MY WONDERFUL UROLGIIST TOLD ME TO GO HOME THINK about THE VARIOUS OPTIONS AND THE ONE THAT I FELT SUITED ME SO HERE I AM WAITING ON ANOTHER APPOINTMENT, HAVING MADE UP MY MIND ON THE RADIATION SEEDS AND LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT STEP OF GETTING BACK TO 'NORMAL' ONCE AGAIN.  nORMAL FOR ME NOW IS VERY DIFFERENT THAN THREE MONTHS AGO.
BEST WISHES TO EVERYBODY NEW TO THE FORUM - WITHOUT IT I WOULD BE IN A PSYCHAITRIC HOSPITAL BECAUSE I HAVE NEVER BEEN WITH A DOCTOR IN MY ENTIRE LIFE UP TO NOW.
KEEP IN TOUCH BECAUSE I WILL PASS ON ANY INFO THAT MAY BE OF HELP TO THOSE IN WAITING.

Speaking for us, the hardest time was that awful period between diagnosis and making a treatment choice.
Now take time to breathe and relax. You now know exactly what you are up against and the wheels are in motion to treat this cancer.
My husband had Brachytherapy back in February and has just had his 3 month PSA results which are very encouraging.
You can and will beat this – stay positive.
Sending you a hug from the UK

cjd  -- give the caps lock key a tap my friend.  it'll make your post alot easier to read.  it would also be a good idea to post your stats in your signature.  it's a scary time, i know.  i wish the best for you.
