Hi lab,

Welcome to the group, and I too passed a stone that looked like brown crystals. That was as much pain as I can ever remember experiencing. Other than 2 hernia surgeries, and the RLP this year; I'm in great shape! Now my friends won't stand too close to me cause they're affraid I'll get hit by lightning. So I hope you are recovered, and pretty much back to normal.

Glen

Hi lab... nice meeting you!!!

Thank you for sharing your journey with prostate cancer with all of us.

It truly is a path we have all traveled or will be traveling and the more we know the better we are for it. 

So many different variables come into play…. And knowing this information will help future friends.  We had one member pass a blood clot… so the more knowledge we have ~ the better prepared we are.

The unknown is what is so scary!

Take care and it’s really great to hear that you are doing so well.

In new friendship,

Lee & Buddy

 

Glen:  Not true of these new friends “me & Buddy”… We’d be giving you the biggest HUG!!!!!!!  Lightening or not!!! J and I’d probably be giving you a big kiss on the cheek too!
