Thank you all for answering my concerns.   I will try to stay positive not just for me but for my husband.  I know deep inside he feels helpless.  Men usually don't express how they feel like women.  I haven't cried like this for a long time.  I am the type that always expects the worse.  I felt like this before we went to get the biopsy results. The 1st Urologist said 1 out of 3 men who get biospy have cancer.  That day he did 3.  One was my husband and wouldn't you know it was him.   The other 2 men were much older.  That day I tried to think positive but broke down as soon as he said the results.  I couldn't help myself.  Everytime I do this my husband asks me "now what have you found out?"   The 1st Urologist said stay off the computer it will drive you crazy.  He was right.  I am just hoping that the 3 tests tomorrow will come out negative.   I want the cancer to be confined to the gland and I want him to be cancer free so he can feel that he will live a healthly normal and long life with me.  We are adoptive parents of a special needs child 9years old now.  He loves her and she loves him. I need him in our lifes.  It's difficult being in the medical profession.  I guess I have seen too much in my time.  I will keep you posted on the results from his tests.   Thank you again for being there...I am glad I found this site.
God bless everyone on this site

Hi ~ Medlaw,


The most important thing you can do is stay with all of us!!!!


We all feel your fear, We all feel your confusion, We all feel your tears….


This is my own personal opinion…. So please ~ take it as a gentle thought nothing more…


To help with the confusion ~ if you stay on 1 thread…..  with the majority of your concerns and questions… it will truly cut down on the stress level with posting.  You will find that each time you post the thread bumps to the top and we know there’s new information….  So consider this…. Because it helps to keep your journey together so we know where you are at all times.  It's kinda like a nice "world wide" conversation.....  Individual threads tend to move quickly to page 2,5,7,55…   Specific questions... work well on new threads... But the overall Journey is nice on one.


There are so many people (new friends) to walk with you on this path you find yourself on.  Let us help ~ by sticking close to us!!   Again ~just my own personal observation….. 


Please ~ keep posting!!!!!!   yeah   

Special Hugs coming to you!!!!  In Friendship ~ Lee & Buddy
