Walt, War Eagle, has a beautiful blog in which he articutates his experience.  Dave Emerson writes very beautifully and extremely articulate.  Me not as much.  I talk alot.  You all know that.  But now I write it.  My site is listed below.  I am not as good as these two but it's a site I can filter some photos through.  And I can yap alot too.

Very cool to see you do this TC - we all need to hear what you have to say. Life can be tough. The insight I gain from you, David & Walt makes me think. I share it with Don and we talk.

That's a very good thing.

My thanks to all of you,

Susan

Beautiful job, Tony! So many good things happen because of this forum and seeing your site is one of them. Every post is going to make a difference for someone out there.
Husband age 66
PSA on 5/1/06: 4.2 (had doubled in 13 mos. and rising monthly)
DaVinci Surgery 8/2/06 - Austin, TX w/Dr. Randy F.A.G.I.N.
T2a (at biopsy)
At pathology - cancer cell leakage into fatty tissue
Post-Surgical PSA on 10/06, 4/07 - undetectable!
11/1/06 - perhaps bladder neck involvement; 30%-50% chance of recurrence
PSA test "Un-zero-detectable" on 10/16/07.
9% chance recurrence w/in next 7 years (down from 50% as we understand it)
Future: PSA tests twice-yearly for now.
