Just one more note of encouragement. This forum is the best PCa support group anywhere.
Everyone makes their own decisions about this thing. My path just before surgery was different than most here. I knew this forum and other online sources was out here, but I consciously chose to turn them OFF. After I acquired a bunch of (too much?) information,after I read all websites and talked to the doctors and made my treatment decision, I just went back to living. At that time I decided not make prostate cancer my whole life. duh?
That is my way of dealing with things.
I admit, that since surgery every day has been about healing and moving on. I have been back here (this forum) virtually every day, reading and learning occasionally sharing my experience.
You are doing the right thing. Get your information, read until your eyes are blurry. Once you have made your decision, don't look back, just look to a future that is hopefully cancer free.
Best to you both...
