Bobsmom - I think it's so great to have a concerned Mom in the forum. It truly is an informative, caring, supportive place. As a wife of a prostate cancer survivor, I can't even imagine how our journey would have been without this forum. I didn't find it until about
2 weeks post surgery, but it's been amazing.
Perhaps you'd like to start your own thread with Bob's journey so we can follow you. You mentioned his surgery is July 10, and we'll all be with him as he goes into surgery, and waiting to welcome him in here to "the other side".
If you start your own thread (maybe title it My Son Bob's Journey) we won't miss anything you post and you'll receive lots of support and replies.
Take care Mom and hope to hear more from you.
