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
