    Book
    One that is worth reading and comes with a DVD and is free! is the book sent out by Loma Linda Proton department. You google those 3 words together and you should come up their web site and its easy to locate the link to the free DVD and book. The book is You Can Beat Prostate Cancer by Robert Marckini.

    Try doing this: Call the Loma Linda Univeristy Medical center proton department at
    800-PROTONS, tell them your situation and that you would like to get info on the proton department.

    Let me know how that works for you, ok.

    Thanks everybody
    You guys have made some great recommendations.
    I ordered 4 books from Amazon today. Hey, maybe we should have a thread where we write book reviews?

    My hubby has been reading but he doesn't like to deal with the computer much. He read a bunch of the threads last night. Relies on me to do his research, etc since I am a nurse.
    But HE will be making the final decision. I'm just doing all the legwork, setting up 2nd and 3rd opinions, writing lists of questions, etc.
    Thanks for all the support. God bless you all!

    books
    We have 2 copies of "you can beat prostate cancer", and would be glad to send you one. My email is [email protected](lisa harlan:) My husband is also not a big computer guy. He read this book, though, and is really excited about proton treatment. We were really opposed to radiation initially, but consider this a different approach. It's good to take a look at everything, though?? Best wishes in your quest........ralphie's wife

    Another Suggestion
    My wife is working on her CEUs and she is taking a course from Western Schools titled

    "Cancer Nursing: A Solid foundation for Practice" by Ellen Carr, RN, etc.

    My wife is taking this class because of me. What I got out of it was a very good reason for adminsitering the Lupron type drugs that has fnally made sense to me.

    It is a nursing textbook but understanding cancer in general is helpful in understanding why prostate cancer is treated like it is. I have had a number of questions answered in a few pages.

    cool
    Very cool Trew. Great suggestion, I need to do some CEU's soon, might as well get credit for stuff I'd like to read anyway.
    I got a really great book in the mail today, though it is controversial. My hubby's urologist wrote down the title today cause he wants a copy. Its called "The Big Scare: The Business of Prostate Cancer". This guy firmly believes that PC is overtreated. He had some really interesting suggestions, and some very good explanations. In parts it is pretty technical, but I'm looking forward to really delving into it. Its giving me some new perspective.

Getting second opinion this coming monday and on 3/16 getting opinion from Michael Cook at IU and he will review tissue slides prior. Hubbie had pretty much decided on DaVinci surgery now he is not so sure....decisions, decisions..Maria

    Mrs Trew ordered the book from Western Schools. You can check them out at

    westernschools.com

    My wife is picking up 25 CEUs for this course. Right now, it is a very practical course for both of us.

    books
    Very helpful to me when diagnosed:

    100 Questions & Answers about Prostate Cancer, 2nd ed. Pamela Ellsworth, MD. Sudbury, MA: Jones and Bartlett, c.2009..

    Dr. Patrick Walsh's Guide to Surviving Prostate Cancer, 2nd ed. New York: Warner Wellness, c2007.

    Be sure to check publication/copyright dates, so as to be as current as possible. I'd suppose Walsh's Guide might be getting a little stale already. Somebody sent me a book published in 1990!
