Hi MT, hang in there, you will make it, I did not get angry when I found out I had Pca, annoyed, sad, frustrated yeah, makes you think of your mortality, my wife has been a rock, even though I know she worries, I too have stage T3a, and have a few more challenges to face, however I have the utmost confidence in my urologist, who wasted no time in making an appointment for the Radiation Onocologist and reasurred me I will be ok, I think he want's me to have the radiation even if my next PSA in 4 weeks time goes down, that makes sense.
My best wishes and prayers to you both.
