I wanted to respond to you but sorry I did not sooner. When you related the story about
the first Urologist stating what he did and "gave" you only 3/12 years, That hit home to me because that is exactly what mine told me. He also said "don't you realize you have Cancer?" He really made me and my wife upset, believe me when someone says you have it ,you realize it to your core. I am so glad you left him and his referrals, his words were rubbish. I immediately left my Urologist in the in the dust, and headed for a large Cancer Center, where they know what they are doing.
I am still here 6 years later, on Zytiga, although I should have had Taxotere first. Still..I am remission for 40 months and feeling good. Mr Oncologist said last time 'What are you even doing here?" and remarked that I look "remarkable".
Anyway glad you found a Cancer Center,sounds like you are in good hands. Also looks like you received very great response here from many more knowledgeable than me. We all welcome you.
BTW , when you get a chance, go to the top of the page, hit the word "search" and in the box that comes up next with the words Custom Search, overtype in that box "Letters to the newly Diagnosed" and then press enter. Click the link there and you will find a great thread started by "Cyclone" that will give you some comfort and support!
Take care, keep us posted in a new thread, and as always, keep the faith!
