Prostate Issues
Gentlemen, I recently learned that I have early prostate issues. It was somewhat of a sucker punch because I try hard to keep myself strong and in good health. I live in the remote mountains of Colorado so I am not close to any major city. Closest to me are Denver, Salt Lake and Phoenix.

I was hoping to perhaps learn as much as possible about this disease and my guess is that some of you may have already experienced it. There are options to choose from and that decision can be a difficult one but must be made. If you choose to share positive information with me, I would appreciate it. All information will be kept confidential.
Thanks,

Well, I am no gentlemen, but I learned about this site at an SSWC manager's meeting which has a lot of information:

Ed Andrews,

I had my prostate out two years with a robot and started playing 5 weeks after that. I'm 70 years old and still playing over 200 games a year.

I wrote a report on my experience and I'll send a copy to your email. It's informative and funny from a senior player's point of view. Call me if you want to talk about anything regarding PC.

Does anyone else want a copy?

Nancy, Eric, Mike and BI, Thanks for your emails. Yes, I would appreciate any input, conversation and/or advice. I'm in my investigative learning curve. Eric shared much and thank you. I am at work daily 9-5. Week-ends in the forest on property tours. Ed

For those with healthy prostates, keep them in shape with regular workouts :)

A happy prostate is a healthy prostrate.

I did overhear some conversation about a new nonsurgical, noninvasive proceedure but didn't pick up any details.
