I was diagnosed 4 weeks ago. The Urologist was terrible I feel so violated from the experience. Out of 12 biopsies 11 were positive for PC. I am also HIV+. I immediately had my primary care HIV specialist refer me to our Cancer Center. Met with the oncologist yesterday. I did not qualify for the hormone trial just 45 days of radiation. Not sure it is the right decision. The urologist was just in a hurry to remove my prostate. That is why I quickly switched to the Radiation Oncologist. I realize today I need to ask more questions before I start radiation. I am also going through a divorce of 12 years. Being 56 and suddenly single here in Palm Springs has all ready been a nightmare. Now this I now am certain I am doomed to be alone. I have 2 friends who live in my complex. I go to school full time carrying dual majors. The only thing that gets me through each day are my 2 black lab service dogs. To be blunt I am a mess lol
No I have not did any googling until my ex gave me to the link here. This is all I have read. He is against radiation for me. My Oncologist told me yesterday I can still get an erection and still orgasm just no more ejactulating. In the gay world that is huge. I thought I was strong enough for this but now doubting myself. I have been a mess for 4 weeks, today different but not really better.
Thanks for my vent
