Hi C., my husband was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer this past February. He is only 45 years old and had no distinct symptoms. He went in for a check up and told our doctor he had a little bit of trouble urinating (my husband just thought it was a bladder infection) Our doctor suggested some blood work since it was a while since my husband did any kind of blood tests. Thats when the red flags showed up.
He had his prostate removed April 3rd and is recovering well. Everyday his bladder is getting stronger. My husband does the bladder excersises to help strenghten it and that is going to help him get rid of the "briefs" he has to wear now. I found alot of my information using wikipedia.com or if you just google Prostate Cancer you will find some information online.
We were shocked to find out that there is little talk or support about Prostate Cancer and the information out there is geared for "older" men. They dont start checking till men are 50. Like breast cancer for woman, Prostate Cancer is one of the leading causes of death for men, but can be treated if found early.
Since we got a second chance, we now talk about it more with our family and friends. If you need anymore information, please email me ____@____.com
God bless you,
Mom of 3 awesome kids, Ryan 13, Troy 9 & Audrey 4. Wife to the love of my life for the last 20 years.
