I’m 57 years old and have prostate cancer. I was diagnosed in October of 2008—a week after my wife learned she had endometrial cancer!—and had surgery two months later. I’m supposedly cancer-free, but I worry from one PSA check to the next that the cancer will return.
I think I speak for a lot of us when I say I‘m not the same person I was before the cancer. Life for me is more precious now, and even as I deal with the limitations the cancer and surgery have left me with, I remain optimistic. Hearing the stories and concerns of other men with PC, and of their loved ones, has helped me retain that optimism. I’m glad I found this forum and am happy to make some small contribution to it.
Hi, My husband (b 1946) was diagnosed with prostate cancer in June 2010. We’ve received a lot of support and information from others on this forum, and want to offer my perspective as the partner, in the hope other men and women find it helpful. I came to this site very early in our process, and found the personal stories and candid sharing to be useful, comforting and sometimes humorous (yes, there IS laughter after PCa). I appreciate the support, and, like the other leaders, want to contribute and help in any way possible.
