Advice from Richard:
THE MORE YOU KNOW,
THE BETTER YOU FEEL
(In response to my post of 1/28/00.)
EVERYONE, goes through what you are going through and if they tell you
they did not, they are lying!
It took me 10 months to get a handle on
"it"...PC, and go through the enormous amount of information to decide
what to do. I am 56yrs old, PSA 7 Gleason 6 and I am going to
Radiotherapy Clinic of Georgia, in Decatur. I went there for seeds
weeks ago, now I am going for 7 weeks of radiation that is unique in
industry of PC.
Get angry, depressed, mad, confused, and all the other
stuff, but NEVER, NEVER just let your doctor handle
informed and knowledgeable - if you can - the more the better.
US TOO group meetings and learn about the others who have PC and what
they are going through.
Learn about this dragon called PC and the
you know the better you will feel about your decision.
But DO NOT
into something you do not know about. Find everything you can, about
much as you can.
May God be with you,
