Hi, I'm John Linscheid. Just turned 63I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in April 2014 (Gleason score 7) and had a radical prostatectomy in July 2014 (due ot a history of Crohns disease and a liver transplant, radiation has not been deemed a safe option). In April 2015, my PSA jumped from undetectible, has since leveled off, and is now slowly rising. I am currently at 0.94. I am being followed by Dr. Naomi Haas at the Abramsom Cancer Center at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Haas plans to hit me with Lupron when my PSA rises above 1.0. My partner (now husband) of 32 years has been extremely supportive--but then he's gotten used to dealing with medical crap from his loving hunny, I'm afraid. I feel great and we are determined to do some traveling and other fun stuff now that we're both retired. Although I did not post much to the group on the yahoo groups list, it has been a lifeline of information and a great source of support over the last two years. So glad I googled "gay men cancer" and found a link in a article that turned up.
