I honestly do not know, and Kip didn't either. He said that he would know more on the 28th, so I will call him that evening or the following day, and will let everyone know.

I am sure that most do not know of his involvement in cable when it was in it's infancy... He is far to modest to brag... A very knowledgeable and respectable gentleman, indeed. I hope that his condition can be resolved in the best possible fashion.

Grade 10 is worst. 78% 10 year survival at grade 6.

You will be in my prayers. Kip.

Kip your gonna half to talk to your wife about this security issue, shes suppose to have you by the balls, she should have noticed this! Needs to be more aware of your surroundings.

To be serious I hope things work out the best, from what I've seen on TV its very cureable so relax and just roll with.

I've been trying to think what to write for days now. Words fail me. Just know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers and that I am only waiting for you to return to the SG family, crankier than ever.

Your friend,

Hang in there buddy! My dad beat prostate cancer 3-4 years ago with successfull surgery to remove it. The nurse was doing a survey and found out that (including my dad) 8 out of 10 prostate cancer patients had a vasectomy before! One of the cops he used to work with just had a bout with prostate cancer at age 36! He beat it also with surgery. You'll beat it!

Thanks for all your encouragement, guys and gals.

Not only is it malignant, but it is big, so my treatment starts with hormones to stop the production of Testosterone. These are analogs of female hormones, so I get to experience hot flashes, etc. I'm told they can be bad but so far, OK. I can tell that I am taking big-time meds, however.

In either three or six months, once I have been shrunk, I will either have it removed or treated with radioactive seeds. If I don't have any complications, like not peeing, I should be fine in the late summer.

Thanks agian,

kip

Kip- Hang in there man, my prayers are with you !

I am a grade 6 survivor myself. I know it's not much comfort but if there is a cancer to get, prostate is the one with the highest survival rate and is very treatable. I had my surgury back in June and got my 6 month clean bill of health in December.

If you read this and want to chat, drop me a PM.
