Re: Pomegranate confirmation!!!!!

Hi Jim,

In a round-table situation, the doctors sometimes tend to give off-the-cuff answers, and that is what happened in this case. The first time I listened, I was awed by the researchers'...

Re: DX in Michigan

Tom,

A search of this site using the words "Michigan prostate surgeon" brought up a post by IADT3since2000 that mentions Dr. Mennon at Henry Ford Hospital as a top surgeon. Using the same search...

Re: DX in Michigan

Hi Tom,

It's amazing how stressful the decision process can be. We've all had to agonize over unknowns, the worst of which is the true state of our cancer. But picking a treatment and then a...

Re: DX in Michigan

Hi Bob,

If my recollection serves me, that 1600 robotic surgeries figure comes from a recent "broadside" by a HiFu proponent. It is a vast exaggeration for advertising purposes. Not that I'm in...

Re: DX in Michigan

Hi Tom,

Welcome to the board. Sorry to hear about your prostate troubles.

I fully concur with Baptista's comments. I would also say that you might question the bone scan -- and the chest x-ray...

Re: jockstrap ot supportive brief?

Greetings,

Right after surgery, your son will have a catheter, precluding wearing underwear of any kind. For me, once that was removed, at first I used Depends full "diapers" until I realized that...

Re: Biospy results back - Cancer confirmed - Now what?

Hello Vic,

I'm sorry to hear that you have become a full card-carrying member here. In a less jocular vein, I know how you feel -- that initial shock when you find out your worst fears have come...

Re: Husband just diagnosed, won't talk about it, any advice?

Hello Rswife,

Yes, denial has been a good friend to many of us. Fortunately, prostate cancer tends to be slow-growing -- with people like your husband doing fine for at least ten years, so there...

Re: Pomegranate confirmation!!!!!

Let me join the chorus of thank yous. I hunted down a fairly cheap source of POMx and ordered a year's supply. Every day seems to bring more reasons for hope.

Re: "This disease is going to kill you"

Too bad Jim can't call himself a "psychologist" and get the fees he would so richly deserve. His advice is worth more than a that from a cartload of well-meaning but misguided counseling...
