Tud I think you have way overpaid now with your assistance and comfort given than what you received here. It don't surprise me my tft hasn't been too popular. With 20/20 hindsight I'd probably would've chose watchful waiting instead. But with all the pro surgery sentiment back in 2007 I thought I really MUST do something. I still remember my first bozo urologist stating without radical treatment I'd be dead in 7 years. With my numbers that was even a lie back then. Thank god for the local tv newscast showing my the university hospital here was a leader in less is more with low PCa treatments and my contacting an expert urologist. I think he's still the director of research. I haven't seen him since changing to medicare.
I give you credit for staying here I just evolved to the point I rarely thought of prostate cancer anymore unless I looked in here. When lightening took out my PC and I was without for awhile I just didn't see any need to get back into cancer world when I set up a new one. So I never bookmarked Healing Well again. It was a break that still is going on. Life is too short, so the few remaining relatively healthy senior days that remain I just enjoy life. In time I know other health concerns will come and one will kill me. But like my uro said I'll die of something, but he doubts it will ever be prostate cancer. Meanwhile my knees are killing me after climbing up and down on a ladder yesterday cleaning out my gutters. They were long overdue.
It's great to here from you and Purgatory again. I'll try to look in here every now and then for old times sake. Stay well my friends,...Ziggy
I don't know you but you sound like you may look at alternative medicine. I had a sever case of arthritis when I was young. I went into Beekeeping commercially and used bee stings on my swollen joints. MD community had my life span as 55 yr old max. I am still here. Look up (apitherapy) it works
