Thanks, Erin. His name is Peter Muhn and he’s at the USC Science and Health Center in LA. Great guy and he’s been a big help.

I have a few friends who have had prostate cancer and most of my closest friends are 70+. We are an irreverent bunch, which means humor is a constant in our conversations.

Thanks for your story @bajk49. We share many similarities in our journeys. It’s 10 months since my surgery, which I had when I was 69. My PSA scores indicate no cancer.

a little bad
Thank you for your support ! Wish u the best. God bless.
