Removal of my prostate in 2000 was the biggest change in my life. I was 47 at the time. The cancer was encapsulated within the prostate. I was very lucky. My Uncle at the time was 74 and he was Diagnosed with PC which prompted me to call my doctor for a PSA test. The doctor reluctantly did the blood work and was very apologetic when the results came back.
I thought my life as a gay man was over. I did so enjoy ejaculating and now that visual aspect was gone. Still I did not feel like the same person. It has taken 17 years to move on. First 5, then 8, 10, 15 and now 17 years free of cancer and alive.
I do so wish this site was around back then. I really needed to talk to someone. It will get better. Once the fear of dying from cancer is gone, you begin to live again.
