I just joined this site and have a few questions. After being diagnosed with prostate cancer last October I had the whole thing removed in January. Since then I have changed some of my priorities and have moved retirement up from 2019 to 2015. I don't get upset with other drivers anymore, either. :)
My first follow-up after surgery was positive with a psa of '0'. Another follow-up is scheduled in 3 weeks. I consider myself very fortunate and am looking forward to whatever lies ahead. My concern has to do with constant daily thoughts being a survivor. I think about cancer, trearment, lifestyle changes, etc. all the time. I just want to know if others are, also, consumed by these thoughts.
I am 59 years old and am amazed at how many other people I have met who are in the 'cancer club'.
