My husband's Uro
I am so very very grateful that my husband has the uro he has and because she didn't feel right when she gave him the rectal exam she ordered biopsies. He is only 55 with a PSA level of 2.6. Almost unheard of for it to be prostate cancer but it is......
We found a surgeron and he will have surgery on Nov 8th. We caught the cancer at the earliest stage possible and I think it's because his dr just did't have a 'right' feeling. Thank God for her.
If you have husbands who are 50 and older and only having the PSA testing done once a year, DEMAND MORE!!!!!! That rectal exam (which they are all "suppose" to do is what could have saved his life.
We talk about woman's issues here and the coping skills we develope and how we learn to not accept some cheesy answer from a dr......it's time that we teach our husbands/partners the same thing. It's up to us to push push push to force them to take proper care of themselves but we've already proved how strong we are by living with IC and if we can do that....we most surly can get the husband into the dr's office once a yearteri
Courage does not always roar. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow".

My husband and I see the same uro --- it's really comforting to know he's being checked frequently. Thanks for the reminder.

I am so sorry to hear about your hubby...you have been trough so much. It is wonderful that he has such a great doc who picked it up early enough so he can have a full recovery. I have a cousin who just went through this very thing, same way...doc caught it on exam...no symptoms, and he had surgery, and is doing great!I know that your hubby will do well, and be cured. He is lucky to have you, and even for all you have gone thru, it sounds like you are in good spirits and have a positive attitude. I really admire you! I am sending you good thoughts for restored health and much happiness. You and hubby will be in my prayers.Wishing you the best, today, tomorrow, and always! Sheri G
