I never had your treatment as i went straight for Brachytherapy with PSA 2.19 and Gleason 3+4=7(click my Avatar for full version).My Oncology nurse gave me a small note booklet and wrote my diagnosis at the top and I add to it as i have meetings and think of questions to ask at the next meeting,
I think the way we all react to the diagnosis depends very much how your life is at the moment you get the bad news but i felt a little bit lucky that my Diagnosis was picked up early by a private medical for different reason.I had been retired for five years and was able to get away from a lot of problems life had thrown at me for the last twenty years.Broke but not defeated and of course that light at the end of the tunnel turns out to be a train. So i only had two choices,Fight or Flee
I am 26 months on from Brachytherapy with PSA down to 0.39 and no great problems so far, with another test in December and tests at six month intervals not out the woods yet but the trees are thinning a bit and i can start traveling in Europe again.
Good luck and i can be of any help please ask.
