Well I am scheduled for robotic RP on this Thursday the 10th. I am comfortable with my decision as I have visited with 6 doctors and 3 different pathologists. All say same thing without hesitating, "RP son, you are too young to do radiation". Well I ran 5 miles in 35 minutes yesterday, shoot a nice deer this weekend with my bow and my friends took my wife and I out for a 5 star dinner with some of the best wines available on Saturday night. It was a going away party for my prostate. Even had a cake shaped like a prosate. Yes sick but we laughed hard and that is always the best medicine. My wife gave it a better going away present that night also:). If all is contained then I move on and never look back. If it is not, just call in for some air support and fry it. Either way I will always do my best to help others stay informed about this disease and help fight it until there is a cure or vaccine. In many ways it has helped shape my character and made me a stronger and better person. It also brought my wife and I closer (not that there was a problem) but she was my rock before as well. The reason I am writing this is I hope all of us can learn from anything we face in life and walk away a stronger better person from any experience. Whatever does not kill you makes you stronger. It is up to each person to find something in any experience to take with them and make something good happen. Hope whoever reads this is doing great and can use this to help them through their journey. Thank you.
