Larry, as someone working to finally finish his medical studies I can tell you one thing: Prostate cancer is fairly common nowadays and the diagnose today is far from being as tragic as it was some years ago. There exist many good treatments for this particular disease. But one thing remains constant: Don't let it get your spirits down! That way you will always win.
Larry, Don’t jump to conclusions. Wait and talk to your doctor. My dad had prostrate cancer for years. He died but not from prostrate cancer.
God blesses us all the time, sometimes it’s a little harder to see the blessing.
So sorry to hear the news. But as the other posters have said, there are many options, and treatments can - and are - very effective. I do know that a positive attitude is also an asset - and you've shown time and time again a great sense of humor; my guess is that a great spirit comes with that, too.
This is sad news indeed. Yes, people pull through this kind of thing, but it's a long and bumpy road. And you feel like a very close friend living just on the other side of my computer monitor, so I wish you all the strength and courage to come out the other side an even better person than you already are.
