I'm with island time. There is a time and place for everything and musicman is past that point and needs support, not argumentative BS.
Frankly, I debated with myself as to whether or not to even bother to post again on this thread but here I am. Obviously I disagree with the above statement. One of the beauties of our site is that we are about
far more than support; we are also about
sharing information and advice. Sometimes it's a fine line between advising and nagging but most of us are simply trying to help. Regardless of JNF's admitted bias, does anyone really believe that his advice is wrong? Almost every one of us suggests that new members get educated and get opinions from both uro-surgeons and radiation oncologists. By omitting RO's in his search, Musicman has not done his homework -- pure and simple. At least that's my take at this time since he has not told us that RO's were among the doctors he consulted despite questions about
Of course it is his right and his decision to make choices when he feels it is appropriate. I'm sure all of us wish him well with whatever choice he makes. We just hope it's a choice made after extensively exploring ALL of the options. Even the most rabid radiation fan among us probably went thru the "get it out" syndrome before doing more investigation that led to a different (but not necessarily better) choice.
Finally, to the point that Ed (F8) made, this is not only about
Musicman since these are not PM's. Other newbies may be reading this and it's important to recognize that as well.
