The search does have a few problems.
Go to http://www.google.com and type the following to search this forum in the standard google search box (using "stricture" as an example search word):
site:healingwell.com f=35 stricture (this should come up with all the topics on stricture)
"f=35" is used to identify the only prostate cancer forum
Replace the word "stricture" with other search words or phrases you'd like to find. For example if you wanted to find all discussions in the forum around the "da Vinci" surgical procedure you could type:
site:healingwell.com f=35 "da Vinci" (the double quotes ensure you'll find the exact phrase "da Vinci")
This has been more reliable for me than the built in search.
