The Ark

Whatever floats your boat...

If you pray please do.. If you don't please send some positive energy my dad's way

I lost my mom to cancer Oct 15th 2008. Im not even over that. My dad in April of 2008 was also diagnosed with cancer (prostate). Dad had his prostate removed and seemed to be doing well. Mom passed away. May I say right now that I hate cancer!

We are now at another scary point. My dad's psa after having his prostate removed has tripled. We are going to our 1st second opinion. We have another coming up.

Im scared!

Sending positive thoughts and Prayers your way Lori. There is nothing to say that will make it any easier, just know you have friends here who are willing to be a shoulder should you want or need it.

Lori, I'm sending prayers and positive thoughts to you. I pray your Dad will be ok. Like Dee said, you have friends here who care.

Thank you guys! Had good news from the Doc today. He said the cancer is most likely small and that even if the radiation did not work that my dad still has a good 5 - 10 years. yay!

I'm happy I tuned in just in time for the good news update, Lori. Echoing what Deborah and NBC said, knowledge is power. If you want to fight for your dad, learn everything you can about his type of cancer and treatment options. One of the best things you can do for a family member with cancer is to be their advocate in their dealings with health care professionals. Patients are often too weak or intimidated to question things or speak up for themselves (especially patients who are older men who are used to having control).

Sending you and your dad positive thoughts. You'll get through this.
