Another successful year. Next step for me, interview 2 Dr's for a major surrey that will significantly improve my quality of life. All will happen this week and a decision about surgery will be made by Friday, the sooner I can have the surgery, the better. On another note, I just watched the unbelievable finish to the Auburn-Alabama game, WOW, what a Finish!! Okay back to Movember, if you haven't supported my cause or helped raise awareness, please do so. Every 16 minutes a man dies from Prostate Cancer...that's 92 people today. That's reality...so spread the word and get your PSA checked.

Hey, have you supported you favorite MoBro or MoSista? Check out my Mo http://us.movember.com/mospace/457931 Help me raise awareness but telling a brother, uncle, father, coworker or friend. One in 6 men will get Prostate cancer. If you feel compelled to support me, click on the link above, check out my 'stash' and drop a donation in the bucket :)
And the results are in.....drum roll please.... The HBOTs had no impact. my Urologist did another Cystoscopy and my bladder is shot. His exact comments were"your bladder has no capacity and the radiation has killed your bladder". Next step is an operation called a Continent Urinary Diversion. Look it up http://urology.osu.edu/20975.cfm It's pretty involved and for me, it's go time. The quality of life change would be dramatic. Instead of running to the bathroom every 30-60 minutes, I would be back to 'normal' going every 4-6 hours. I'm interviewing 2 surgeons this upcoming week, one from Duke, one local. Trying to schedule this in December if possible. Just one more punch to throw against cancer. Stay tuned
