Congrats 56 Pontiac! Keep the good news coming!
I'm nine months out of surgery and feeling very well.
I'm also at my one-year anniversary from the ominous phone call I got from my family doc on a Sunday morning in mid-October 2006, to tell me my PSA was high and to refer me to a urologist.
From there, my PCa journey began. I was diagnosed two days before Thanksgiving and had surgery 11 days after New Years. It was a tough holiday season. BUT...
Time has flown and like so many others here, I got through it, thank God.
To all you newcomers to healingwell.com -- welcome. Time will fly for you too -- believe it or not.
Do your research and trust that you will be OK -- because you will. And before you know it, you'll be celebrating your one-year anniversary and many more to come.
We're all gonna beat this thing.
