[M]y oh My………. What a day or should I say weekend of tangents of different options. Why in the world did I think that my planned surgery for the Radical Prostitechomy would now be leading me to another procedure – the brachytherapy option. But… what about that option with a Gleason 8? It looks like the LDT version (seeds) would not work, rather it would have to be the HDT version which is a bit different. I found a video that I had watched before and this person had his surgery by a Dr. Arnon Krongrad, M.D. Apparently he’s a pioneer in this process with very high success rates. Here’s a great story from a Urologist point of few who had it done. I just found another story and this really is hitting home and making perfect sense. In his story he talks about emotions/decisions and then moving on with that decision and handing it over to God.
Philippians 4:6-7New International Version (NIV)
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
I really think that this is what I needed to hear today and get m mind back on track with my original decision to g o with the surgery with Dr. John Corman.
One more great success story I like his quote too:
At 69 years old, if I can do it, so can you. Trust in the Lord and leave all your fears at home. Come with a happy heart and you will go home with a happy heart and no prostate cancer and no pain.
