    @Robertg, the long road indeed. Where are you at now? Pre-treatment? A good place to find other folks to chat with is the community page: I’d also recommend just scrolling through some of the articles from our team of patient advocates: Glad you’re here, although of course I wish you didn’t have a reason to be! – Nina, Team

    At age 55, I went to my MD for my annual physical. When asked, I told him I felt fantastic.

    About 10-years ago, he started getting labs before the exam, which made sense. This time, his questions during the exam focused on urinary function and erections (I had no problems with either). The digital exam was thorough. And I asked him “what are you looking for? Gold?”

    He explained that my PSA had jumped from 3.5 last year to 7.0 this year. Referred to a urologist, who did a biopsy which confirmed cancer with a Gleason 7. Had a DaVinci prostatectomy. Pathology found clean margins, no spread outside the capsule, clean lymph nodes and seminal vesicles.

    Today, I’m 68, healthy and still working. My wife and I will celebrate 43 years in October. I continue helping men as a sounding board and resource for prostate cancer, and I’m grateful for where I am today, where I have been and where I’m going.

    @MikeinTulsa, I’m sometimes reminded how mind blowing it is that you can have no symptoms and yet something so life-threatening growing inside your body. I’m glad your doc was attentive, if not very chatty until after your exam! Sounds like as good results as anyone could hope for. Thrilled that you and your wife can celebrate many more anniversaries together. Thanks so much for posting this hopeful story. Glad you’re here.
