A little late, but here's the latest.

I went to see my new Oncologist last Monday. Actually, he was my original Oncologist until my Employer changed our Insurance to Health "Assurance." As a side note, if you are unfortunate enough to have this "Insurance," I would suggest that you consider a supplemental policy (that is if you suffer from anything worse than a hang nail). I am basically considering 3 options:

1.) Radiation with a Cyber-Knife - the upside is that it could possibly shrink the tumors in my Lymph Nodes and might improve my Neuropathy (ah, to be able to walk without a cane again). The downside is all the negative effects associated with Radiation.

2.) Clinical Trials - My form of Cancer is exceedingly rare so as the Oncologist put it, "the good news is that you would be eligible for almost any Clinical Trial. The bad news is that you would be eligible for almost any Clinical Trial." Clinical trials offer hope but by their nature are a shot in the dark. In addition, to qualify, I would first have to undergo Hormone "Therapy," which is the chemical equivalent of Castration. On an up note, I could share the experience of menopause more intimately with my wife.

3.) a 2 Drug off-protocol Chemotherapy that is primarily used to treat Bladder cancer. it is the consensus that my Cancer most closely resembles Bladder Cancer so this may be promising.

I have a lot more research to do but I'm leaning toward option 1 followed by 3, although I'm sure that could change.

As I have not mentioned this in ages, it is vital for all men over 40 (particularly if you have a family history of Prostate Cancer) to get themselves checked on an annual basis. And as always my heartfelt thanks to this truly amazing community.

Bobo It's always another decision in which road to take... 1 and 3 choices seem good... But as you research maybe something else will make it self available to you..
As always .... in my thoughts and prayers ...hand on shoulder as you make another decision... which I believe you are being guided in the right direction... God Bless

After a week of agonizing, and a few sleepless nights, Denise and I have decided on a Treatment Plan:

I definitely want to investigate the Cyberknife. If I, actually my tumors, are eligible, it's a no-brainer (my specialty ). Big potential upsides (the possibility of walking normally & and reduced or obliterated tumors). No real downside so I'm crossing my fingers on this one.

My Oncologist wanted me to go with Hormone Therapy. I respectfully disagree as I see little, if any, benefits and multiple pitfalls. While I would love to get in touch with my feminine side, perhaps a sensitivity course?? I believe that he is recommending this course because going through the Therapy will qualify me for Clinical Trials. I don't understand why I would be forced to undergo a Treatment with no possibility of success to qualify. There has to be a way around this "rule."

On Chemo, I have elected to go with a 2 drug "cocktail" primarily used to treat Bladder Cancer. My tumor is exceedingly rare but it is the consensus of my Medical team that if it resembles anything, it is Bladder Cancer. Also, the one Chemo drug that knocked down my tumor for over a year was a treatment for Bladder Cancer.

On the home front, it's been tough. I went through a period of several months where I simply saw no hope. That's a bad place to be. I have recently rediscovered my hope, faith & love (I believe that they are interrelated) and am ready for the fight.

I often wish I had the words that would make this community understand how grateful I am for your support. I don't so Thank You will have to do. You have given me and my Family so much - I fervently hope that I have given something back.

Trust me, you've given a whole bunch! As for me, you continue to be an inspiration. You've taught us all valuable lessons on determination, faith, hope...and love!

It's so easy for one to be positive and upbeat when life is all peaches and sunshine, and even then many of us can find some whinning room. I want to know how somebody is going to play when they're down by 10 in the fourth quarter, temp is 33 degress, it's raining, and they've got a broken thumb. That's when you know who somebody really is, what they really hold dear, what they really believe. I stand in awe of the faith, peace, and courage God has given you, and in gratitude of the faith, peace, and courage that gives me. Thanks brother. It's so sweet to know that light always overcomes darkness, faith overcomes despair, life overcomes death. The possibilities are endless.
