Within the last week or so, someone suggested other interactive PCa forums.  Can't seem to find the post (it appears HW posts from 8/17 to 8/23 are missing). Was it you, Idaho?  If anyone else can recall, I'd appreciate directions to that post.  Thanks all.

Hi puget,

I do have three other online forums listed at my blog http://pca-info.blogspot.com/.  Click on the menu item called "Online Support Forums" on the left margin menu.

I will add more online forums and more information links as I find them.  This forum (healingwell) is the most active and, in my opinion, has the most caring people.  The HealthBoards forum is good, but it is very limited in what you can post.  For example, they don't allow anyone to post links to other sites or offer their e-mail address to get in touch with other forum members.  I do like HealthBoards for the information.

The google groups and yahoo groups are good as well, but sometimes there is some garbage you need to wade through to get to good information.

I have two or three more forums I'm working on to see if they are valuable and I am trying to register for them.  I'll post more as I can.

All the best,

Idaho

Hi Puget: www.ustoo.com  is a safe and reputable site with all kinds of resources. Us TOO is a grassroots organization started in 1990 by Prostate Cancer survivors to serve other survivors, their spouses/partners and families.
