    Prostate cancer, what online resources did you find the most helpful?

    We need your help again. We're working to improve our resources page and want to know, What online resources did you find the most helpful? For example, did you google your diagnoses? What cancer sites did you find? Did you look for financial resources, help with prescriptions, help with treatment expenses? Travel expenses, or a treatment center? Give us the run down of the first 48 hrs after you were diagnosed that you spent online. What did you want to know? And did you find it?

    With this information we can develop more resources for our fellow WhatNexters to help them find the help they are looking for, as quickly as possible. Give your tips and resources you found helpful and we may use your information in our articles to help others in the future.

      first 48-involved googling-wanted to learn all we could about the disease itself and life expectancy for stage 4 prostate

      no real answers were found, left unsatisfied for over a year i think

      i found what i was looking for in a site that gave me real people and their story through treatment and till death. with stage 4 you know it will happen, you just need a clearer understanding. the next thing that heped the most, was not treatments, that can be found anywhere, but as a wife of pca i wanted wife experiences with no soft shoeing, that i found elsewhere as well.
      as women involved in these relationships we are alone, always trying to not to "go there", but we are still young and need support. other cancers usually have "that" available for support.

      The most honest answer - Google, with a close second to clinicaltrials.gov as resources. But WhatNext is the #1 place I go for questions. I've been amazed at the Knowledge base we have here. Every time someone has a question there is almost always a quick and complete answer by someone who's "been there" either as a patient or care provider.

      Keep it positive and smile :)
