      Ray, you're in my prayers. I too have had prostate cancer for the last 4 years with. I've had two biopsy's. Fortunately it is the slowest growing kind according to extra tests. But has to be watched carefully. I hope yours is over and done with!

      Hi Ray, Like you, I had prostate cancer. My surgery Aug, 2014. My psa had been rising fast but was caught early. For 3 yrs after I had tests every 6 Mo. Last year doc said "see you in a year".
      With news of Mike Slive's passing due to recurrence, initial diagnosis in '90's, wondering if 6 mo. check up is better. How about you...how often do you get checked out.
      Hope all is well...Thanks! wrp

      FWIW, I did warn about the language in that video, in case people are at work or just don't want to hear cursing. I always thought the "Always Be Closing" scene from that movie was great. It has a cult following of its own.

        It could be posted on Too Hot. Mods there might be OK with it. Be their decision.

      Ray,

      I do not know if anyone is monitoring what diehardgator960608 is posting but it's pretty inflammatory. In the years I've been here I've never reported anyone but this person sure doesn't sound anything like a Gator.

      RAY - Can you help me? I posted a Twitter thing that I thought was funny and used the same heading it had -- was going to put (JOKE) after it but posted it after writing my thoughts at the bottom of the Twitter thing -- apparently has everyone in a tizzy (I get it -- I freaked out when I saw the headline on Twitter). Can you fix title, please? Thank you!

      So far things have been going OK. Have follow-up checkups from time to time to see if there any more Cancer problems.

      Everything has been going fine lately. Sometimes hard to believe I actually had Cancer surgery. Looking forward to Christmas.
