Ok, once some of get diagnosed with a PCa recurrence, and we fear the news that we have reached mets, little things can drive you batty. The last few days I have noticed red in my urine and pinkish stools. I'm of course freaking out, figured I've gone Mets and its all over. I had planned to call the hospital on monday if things ddn't get better. So basically I'm going nuts. Long story short. We had red beets on thanksgiving and I've been eating the leftovers since. A little web search reveals that red beets turns urine red and stool pink. So I an't dead yet!!!!. No more beets for me.
