I was diagnosed in January: PSA 4+, Gleason 7 (3+4), staging T2c. I had robotic surgery at City of Hope (Dr. Kawachi) in March, and am awaiting my first post-surgery PSA next week. I've written up my story, and my wife's, including all the research we did along the way (lots of links). It's rather long a long thing, and wouldn't be appropriate as a posting here. You can find the writeup at http://www.sv-moira.com (scroll down about half way to the "Prostate Cancer" page). Any followup reports on my condition will go to that web page.

It's probably best if you respond here. We're in the States at the moment, but we're usually without WWW access (we live on a sailboat in Central America). When we're back in port I'll try to catch up with any responses.

All the best to everyone.
