Over the past week I have laughted and cried at the postings, threads, love and humor in this forum.
I don't want to cry today, so here is a start at some humor. I hope it starts a long thread and we all can get a laugh or two.
 
My friend Don has been going to the Urologist now for several weeks. His PSA is slowly rising, but, DRE and first biopsy we inconculsive. They sheduled a second biopsy. As Don was lying on the table. The Doc had positioned the ultrasound unit. We all know where. I like to call it the Los Angeles Class Act Sub. Don looked over his shoulder and made this statement......" Doc, this doesn't mean were going steady". Great guy.
 
When I came back to my room after surgery, as they moved me from the gurnie to the bed, my gown fell open exposing me to the whole world. I looked down and told the nurse "I think somebody stabbed me" her response was "yes, and they left you naked".
 
Let's hear from everyone.
 
War Eagle to all.
 
Love and prayers,

There is always room for humor, War-eagle.  Very funny stories.
 
A friend of mine who is a PCa survivor has the same female urologist as me.  She's an attractive gal and and every time she has given him a DRE he has begged, "Oooh baby, can't you keep it in there a little longer?"

D.O.B - 8/9/52

PSA: First ever was 9.8 in late Oct. ‘06, two weeks later, 10.1

DRE: Negative

Biopsy results 11/22/06.  Both lobes involved.  Six out of eight cores positive - from 100 percent to 90, to 60, to 50, two 20s and two zeros.

Gleason 3+3 = 6

Da Vinci Robotic RP surgery, City of Hope, Jan 12, 2007

Post surgery pathology – Organ confined, Gleason still 6, margins clear.  Volume of tumor much less than biopsy suggested.  14 percent overall.

First post-surgery PSA -- Undetectable, 2/20/07

Second post-surgery PSA -- Undetectable, 9/11/07

My Hubby told his urologist after the DRE:
 
'For an educated guy you have some very strange habits'!!
 
It made him chuckle anyway.

So, this weekend I went to the mens UNC vs. NC State soccer game - my nephew is the starting keeper for UNC. After the game I walked over to say hi to him and I was walking back out of the stadium I notice something white on the ground. As I got closer I saw that it was a pad that looked quite similiar to the one I was wearing that day, but since I had boxer briefs and jeans on I thought there is no way. Well I was wrong and it gave my family a good laugh! The good thing out of that is I went the rest of the day with no pad and had great success, so I am pad free.

Man at urologist office: “I eat my fruits and vegetables with five servings of fruits per day, I've read that it helps keep you from having prostate cancer - right?”

Nurse: “That may help.  What varieties of fruit do you like?”

Man: “Let's see.... there's banana cake, banana pudding,  orange cake, blueberry muffins, pineapple upside cake, apple pie...”
