Well, I have to let everyone know that I am the proud father of a removed cancerous prostate. I had an elevated PSA, so that led to a biopsy, and then surgery yesterday. The surgery was done up here in Seattle by a well known urologist that performs the procedure with the Davinci robotic aid, using 5 small holes and a stereo lens camera.

He told me that everything went excellent, and I will make a full recovery. Play on guys, and have your PSA checked!!!

Glad to hear that all went well with the procedure---the one part I didn't understand was 'Seattle'. Isn't that a long way from Valdosta?


Seattle is a long way from Valdosta. But, they only do open surgery in Valdosta. Mine was done using the daVinci robot.


This is the only way to go. I'm glad my brother-in-law is a doctor up here and knew a very good urologist who has done almost 200 of these procedures.

Thanks for all the positive thoughts & prayers!!
