It's been awhile...

Wow...I can't believe how long it has been since I have written on here about my cancer experience. Well I am a little over 3 1/2 of being NED (no evidence of disease). That's such a great feeling! I'm excited and nervous at the same time. Lately I have been meeting other prostate cancer survivors who when they hit their 5th year mark, they ended up with a recurrence. I had focal positive margins with mine and so that has always had me a bit nervous. I know that I'm seeming a bit lax on postings....well not just seeming but very lax. I'm going to make a real concerted effort to get back on here and update regularly what this has been like.

I still am dealing with pain during orgasm at times but as far as the erectile function, that is great! I also didn't end up with any incontinence from my surgery, which I am thrilled about. I have to get a bit more disciplined with my Kegal exercises as those are supposed to be a part of my life every day. I've been lazy with those, mostly because I hate them but I'm going to try to get better with that too.

Basically that's where I am right now...still reading at a less than 0.01 on my PSA and I'm hoping to keep it that way!

I am a student at the University of St Andrews, Scotland and I am currently doing a research project on the role of online blogs for individuals impacted by cancer. I was wondering whether I could talk to you about your opinions and your online social efforts.

I hope that my research will promote online blogging as a critical resource and increase its awareness.

Please email me back if you would like to take part.

Thanks in advance :)

Hey, I have read blogs of prostate cancer survival and it's quite inspirational. I have also read about robotic prostatectomy . However, it is important to consult the doctor before undergoing any treatment.
