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!!!

Tiny,

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?

Tiny hope you over the operation soon.They said on the news today that drinking beer is good for your prostate something to do with the grain in the beer. And thats good enough for me. Get well soon.

Tiny, hope all gets real well soon....no lifting! BTW are you VN Vet? if so get to the VA and apply for a disability due to prostrate cancer due to agent orange...should be an easy award.

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!!
