Hello Jim and welcome.
My husband was on Active Surveillance for a year before changes happened and it was decided that he should go for treatment.
Because it was Active Surveillance (usually for those men whose cancers are small, contained, slow etc) all treatment options were still available to him after that year, but in the meantime he had the whole year to get his head round cancer and the treatments.
When I say he, I mean me, since he's never really investigated any of it - just left it to me. The final decision was his though.
Diet wise,I ordered a copy of the book that Lyn mentioned. It's about £12.99 new but I got a used copy from Amazon for 1p with £2.99 p&p. It's in excellent condition and is the same published date as a new one.
Insurance wise - Please let your insurance company know, even if you ask for the Prostate Cancer to be excluded on this occasion. Otherwise you risk leaving not just yourself but your wife too, in the lurch with no cover for ANYTHING. Insurance companies being like they are, a lot of them would take advantage of incomplete/missing info to disqualify any of the cover
For our first holiday post cancer, we went with Explorer Travel who included the PC because it was Active Surveillance.
We are still with the same company but I now check our holiday cover with Compare the Market and Go Compare because I got fed up keep inputting the same info for all the different companies only this time I declared that he has been treated for his cancer using seed Brachytherapy.
Explorer Travel was one of those offered to us now that he has had the treatment and we took it again although it isn't the cheapest option.
If you decide that you want the Cancer covered then comparison websites are the easiest (in my opinion) way of getting a good quote.
I have just insured us again for a single trip/couple and it was £111.00
I could have got a cheaper company from the list given but I went with a slightly higher De Faqto level, and because I was comfortable using Explorer
I've just done insurance using the comparison sites, for my sister and her husband, again a couple/single trip, multiple health conditions. I only had to put in the details once on both sites and they do a check on available companies
Because of her health the cover is very expensive (Gold cover £614) but the one and only insurance company that would take her appeared for both Go Compare and Compare the market so I know it was her only option.
I'm glad you've found us. As you have already seen, there is a wealth of information and support on here, whenever you (or your wife) needs it
