      Hi, thanks for the follow up. Second biopsy positive and in line with first. I decided on the robotic prostratectomy, schedule for October 12. I have comfort in my decision, but am not trying to think about it cause the date is more than a month away. I have resolved in that this is my life fact and this is the best choice for long term health. I have two young daughters (13&11) and have not too yet in that I wanted them to have a nice summer and good start to the year. As it gets close I will have a positive conversation with them. In the meantime I have focused on work and life. Thank you for asking

    Jeff - I saw your recent activity and see that you were about 49 when you got your cancer. I was 46. As a younger man, I would like to see how things are going for you. You can update your 'journey' and we can see how things are going for you. You can also click on my name and see my 'journey'. Cheers.

    John, I read your story.. Wow, what a cluster. Please check out my 'journey' as well. I was 46 when diagnosed. The decision you make is personal. Everyone here has been through it all. Be sure to ask lots of question. For me, being so young, I wanted that cancer out of me as fast as I could. No prostate = no cancer. Everyone's recovery from surgery is different. Some bounce right back, others have a longer road to recovery. I wish you all the best.

      Thank you, I pretty much made my mind up to remove via robotic surgery, but given the cluster I have gone through, am choosing to do another biopsy just to make sure, odds are my biopsy was not mixed up, but given everything else, could have. If you feel like sharing, how did it work out for you, any complications? Again thanks.
