Hi debbie, I am sorry that you are here. Your story sounds a lot like my dads. He was diagnosised at 49 and told he had 6 months to live and go home and get everything in order. He lived much longer than that, but that is not why i am here. My husband also has or had PCa and that is why I am here. My dad taught me that you have to find the best doctors and from your
location, MDAnderson is it. If you are interested in docs in OK, the best onocologist is Dr. Reitz. He has a dry sense of humor, but he is the best. He is out of Mercy, Cancer Care Associates.
It is not the end all when they tell you to get things in order. The biggest part of beating this cancer is BELIEF! Dr. Bernie Segal has multiple great books on beating cancer. My favorite is Peace. love and miracles.
Keep posting, and we will be here for you. Courtney
