The best care a PCa male patient receives is that from our other “halves”; the Wives or Partners.
In fact it is rare to hear about someone that has accepted the positive biopsy results with no dubious feelings. It is the comfort and words of wisdom from our wives that leads us to face the reality. They suffer as much but they are quicker in accepting the pure facts.
You girls become a sort of “Angels” to us and your constant care is part of our survival. Surely some guys do not like to admit it but I believe that many miss you a lot when visiting the doctors alone after the diagnosis.

Unfortunately in this forum we cannot share all our private feelings. There are understandable reasons to limit what one can share. But let me tell you that your exchange of information on the experiences you had in the follow up of your and your friends husband’s cases is helping many newbies and survivors reading the posts.

My wife is my guarding angel but I have had others on the other side of this keyboard along my PCa journey. A special one in 2001 was Jacquie Strax a webby and the wife of a patient that answered my pleas. I am grateful for the advices she gave me.

I am glad to know about your “trio” efforts in your cases and I am hopeful for your continuous participation in the PCa community.

Best wishes for your husbands’ successes.

Totally agree with everything being said here. My wife couldnt make it when I went for my biopsy results and i was shaken and stunned. Sat alone in the car in the hospital car park with evrything going through my mind, I wish she had been there with me. But then when I broke the news to her at home she was my brick. I could see the emotion but she held it togther for me.
Am glad she wasnt there when I was given the result as I was able to break it gently, been togther since we were both 18 years and we are both 52, we know each other inside out.

I am forever grateful for all the online support from everyone on here , it is helping me with my own condition and helping how I support my wife and children through this.
