    Prayers for you, brother.

    You’re going through it but... there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

    Drop the fear. Totally.

    Look up alternatives.

    Diet is usually a trigger for genetic predisposition. So there may be opportunity there.

    Bad things in threes. You should be covered for awhile.

    prayers sent.

    I have an old contact from the UK who was first diagnosed with prostate cancer more than 15y ago. He had some radiation treatment done, and changed up his diet to eliminate beef and milk. he claims that beef and milk can make things worse. Needless to say, the old coot is still kickin, and his PSA count had been stable. I pray you have the same result.

    Prayers sent buddy, may your mom Rest In Peace.

    What procedure you’re getting, DaVinci?
    Prostatic cancer is by far not a death sentence for men anymore, to the contrary, is one of the most survivable cancer right now.
    You’ll be ok.

    I will add my prayers as well. Just going thru the enlarged prostate thing myself using a catheter and waiting for urologist appointment so understand the feelings.
    My understanding is, as others have stated, that it is very treatable!
    God Speed!!

    Best wishes and positive thoughts and prayers your way. I lost my mom recently so I can completely empathize. As others have said prostate cancer, while scary, is treatable.

    My condolences on the passing of your mother. Losing a parent is stressful, but I’m sure that your mom would want you to get your cancer taken care of. The surgery is no picnic, but (unlike radiation) you will slowly feel better with each passing day. Take your doctor’s advice and rest and recover for as long as he/she says to. When you go back to your regular routine (in my case it was work) you will feel very tired. It takes a lot more out of you than you might think.

    There is no shame in being scared. I was scared too. But, as time passes, I think that you will realize that you did the right thing in getting the cancer out of your body. I won’t lie to you...you won’t be the same after the surgery (I don’t want to get into certain issues on a public forum). It will be different both physically and psychologically. However, you will hopefully soon adjust to your “new normal”. The way I look at it is that the surgery gave me a new lease on life. The ability to, hopefully, enjoy my family and friends for years to come. I lost my only sibling to cancer several years ago, and she didn’t have a chance to watch her kids grow up. My surgery, despite some “changes” to my life, was a gift. I hope that your surgery will be a gift to you.

    I wish you well.

    Best wishes. I’m really sorry to hear about your mother passing.

    Don’t fret on the surgery. My grandpa had prostate cancer, in the 90’s. No big deal. You’ll be fine. Try to be positive.
