There is a new procedure that’s called the TULSA procedure, short for a long name. I had prostrate cancer and did this and am now cancer free. It uses microwaves to kill the cancer. Can keep your prostrate that way. Might ask about it. God Bless!

Just saw this and am guessing you are at the hospital now. Hope everything goes well today. I remember when this was such a verboten thing to talk about. Glad it's not that way now as being frank and open about such things saves lives.

You are in our prayers, sir.

It's going to be a while until I can go shooting at my range again,,,
I'm going in for a prostectomy on Monday morning.

During my 6-month medical check-up my Doctor saw that my PSA numbers were a bit high,,,
So he scheduled an appointment with a urologist at my medical center.

A physical exam didn't reveal any lumps but did show an enlarged prostate gland,,,
He then scheduled an MRI for me and those results were also negative,,,
But then my PSA number rose a bit he scheduled me for a biopsy.

That biopsy did show cancerous cells in my prostate,,,
So he scheduled me for a PET scan.

They injected me with some radioactive goop and did the scan,,,
The purpose of the PET scan is to determine if the cancer has spread.

Fortunately for me it had not,,,
But I didn't receive Spider Man superpowers either.

Anyways, after discussing the three options of Surgery, Radiation, or Chemotherapy,,,
I made the decision to go the surgical route to remove it completely.

If I were to do radiation first then surgery later on is not an option,,,
By doing surgery first, radiation and chemo are still options.

I decided that the route I'm most comfortable with is the surgery,,,
My operation is scheduled for 7:00 AM, Monday the 9th,,,
Just 26 days after receiving the positive diagnosis.

Gentlemen, it's entirely possible that by tomorrow afternoon,,,
I could be completely cancer free,,,
Just without a prostate.

Beam me some good Karma my friends,,,
I'm apprehensive but hopeful this will all work out well.

Total recuperation is anywhere from 4-6 weeks,,,
Yes, there will be some side effects,,,
But I can live with those.

The operative word is,,,
Live with.

Reading this after noon on the 9th. Hoping & praying that you are cancer free, and healing well right now!
