Gleason-3+4=Goal-#1 accomplished on Sept 3rd.(decided on Davinci surgery)
pathology report-margins negative

Goal#2-After surgery side effects

Goal#3-first PSA test after surgery(worse on me mentally than the surgery)
PSA@.05 doctor said no further treatment-mission accomplished here

Goal#4-remember how much this site helped and give back all I can-still a work in progress and will forever be

Goal#5-remember how lucky I was to have this cancer detected before it left the prostate
Live life like theres no tomorrow because after this I appreciate every moment

    Great Idea things seem to
    Great Idea things seem to really get foggy during the first few months, first cancer, then what options, then surgery or radiation or something, then waiting, waiting, waiting and more waiting. Of course all of this with the ultimate goal of Live!! but to what end? Goals are cool and your right this site is a God send. Good luck with the Goals; I think I'll work on a few of my own today. Do you think if I work a few minutes a day by the end of the year I can play guitar like Eric Clapton? Maybe I should start with some less ambitious goals
