Hi All. I am a 35 year old Thyroid cancer survivor trying to help my 63 year old father-in-law who was diagnosed with PC in June 2003. His PSH was 11 at the time. He was told after a PET Ct scan that the cancer was not enclosed in the prostate and that it was in his hip bone> Therefore, he was not a candidate for surgery. We are all getting confusing information. He has been on hormone injections for the last 2 years and that he would only have about 10 years until the injections no longer worked. He has no one to talk to that has PC. It has taken some time for him to admit that he really wants to talk to others that have gone through this and are doing well. Having had cancer myself, I know how hard it is to stay positive about your condition and your future. Unfortunately,he is not computer savy. I just want to help educate him and to calm his fears. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
