Sending a special “Warm Welcome” to You!
This will be the hardest time for you….. but once you make your decision… the mind settles down and things start to happen in a positive way. You are on the next stepping-stone that will take you closer to being cancer free.
Your grandfather and father have had their own personal journey with prostate cancer. Now it’s your journey and we are happy you joined us. Thank you for allowing us to walk with you!!! Each journey is different, Each journey is the same…. Having friends to walk it with you will truly make it smoother. You will have had a little more insight possibly ~ with having it in the family prior to your diagnosis…. But it is still a New Journey!
Buddy and I invite you to read our personal Thread: Our Journey ~ Sharing is Caring
We chose Radical Retropubic Prostatectomy
We also watched Dr. Walsh’s 45 minute DVD on RRP. Our urologist was able to order it free by using his letterhead with the request for one. …It was awesome…..
Excerpt from: Our Journey
(C) We had already made our decision before the Consultation
Radical Retropubic Prostatectomy…..Lift the Hood …We wanted Dr. Staley to visually see and feel the tissue and take out all surrounding tissue that may be hiding… cancer cells.
Excerpt from: Our Journey
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER... and POWER conquers FEAR!!!!!
We decided to share "Our Journey” in hopes of helping at least 1 person!
If it helps more…. If it helps you!!!! That will truly be a blessing…
At no time are we writing to tell you what you must do, or what you should do….
Your decision is Your Decision!!
Just giving you a view of what decisions we made, what the process was for us, and the outcome as of this date.
Hope to hear from you soon… Keep posting.... OKAY!!
Take care and know our thoughts and prayers are with you.
In Friendship ~ Lee & Buddy
“God Bless You”
