Thanks Chiguy,
Sorry about the PM thing but so long as were not against board rules and I have already put it out there I'm fine with it. I appreciate the information as there is some that I was not aware of. I'm not at home at the moment so I don't have my numbers in front of me but the PSA got close to 13 and after the biopsy  the gleason score was at or close to 7, the V.A. doc. said three options, remove (won't do it) raditation (maybe) or nothing (very probable)

He said due to the numbers seeding was not an option. If I get 3 or 4 yrs I'm fine with that, everything hurts so my small frame is worn out from all the labor work over the years. I am still considering the radiation but have to get back to my health forum to see what the one that have been through it have to say about it.

This is when I wish I lived where I could see Haley as from her board personality I would feel comfortable with her. Matter of fact my first provider was willing to see me without references because I had been posting on the regional board for awhile so she was at least a little familiar with me. Told her in an email I need to get some kind of approval first as I had none and she said no she would go with her gut feeling about me from the way I presented myself on the board. So she opened the door for me and I appreciate her to this day.

Sorry if this was a little long.

Thanks for the input and advice,
