Hi all, been following all your threads and seems like you are all doing ok, keep up the good work it gives me great incentive for when its my turn. Op coming up on 8 December opted for laperoptical procedure, seems the best way but even so the surgeon says if it gets awkward he may have to open me up anyway, not looking forward to it at all. Been on a fitness kick 3 to 4 miles each night, 20-30 sit ups in the morning and of coarse kegesl a few times a day ( over here in the uk we call them pelvic floor exercises ) down from 14 1/4 stone to fraction over 13 1/2 in 2 weeks, now they tell me blood pressure sky high and also cholesterol levels high, now on diet and more bloody pills, also being asthmatic and on pills and puffers for that i feel like a walking disaster at the moment, its about time i got my health in order seems like itall went wrong at once over a short period of time (getting on @ 48) anyway sorry to bore you with all that, now counting the days till op, will keep you posted. Carry on keping well

You are funny! I love the thick accent that comes across even as you write. 48 and falling apart at the seems eh? Does this mean in 2 months I can expect to be heading toward desaster too :>0 Don't worry, a little excersise, a few pounds off and you will feel like a new man in no time.

By the way; have you ever used Ignatia to reduce symptoms of asthma? I know Europe is much more alternative than the U.S. We tried everything with our daughter and the one thing that finally worked well was the Ignatia. It completely eliminated her need for a nebulizer.
Just wondered is all.

Well, I must have one foot in the grave at 52! Verrrrry funny Mickeyboy. Keep up a stringent diet. My husband, pre-surgery had high cholesterol and were threatening with meds. We knew there were plenty of side effects, plus once you're on them, it's pretyt much permanent.

I put him on a very low, low fat diet and he dropped 30 points in 30 days. Avoided the bullet, there. However, during the liquid diet portion of surgery prep he lost 11 pounds and now we're concentrating on getting those back (with a few more fats).

Nver a bore. And many of us know how tough the waiting and countdown period is - agonizing, actually. Hang in there (and here).
Husband age 65
PSA on 5/1/06: 4.2 (had doubled in 13 mos. and rising monthly)
DaVinci Surgery 8/2/06
T2a (at biopsy)
T4c (at pathology) w/cancer cell leakage into fatty tissue
Post-Surgical PSA on 10/3/06 - undetectable!
Update: 11/1/06 - perhaps bladder neck involvement; 30%-50% chance of recurrence
Future: PSA tests twice-yearly for now

Hey Mickey, the waiting is the worst. I hate it. You take care of yourself now, 'cause I'm here to tell you that at 62 it's worse! : )
