Requesting Advice

Hi all.

(Have you figured out yet that when a post starts that way, it's going to be a doozy?)

I have a request to make from all of you. I don't quite know how to put this, and I'm pretty much guaranteed to be incoherent about it, but here goes.

The important part:

All of this is leading to that favor I mentioned. I need more information on prostate cancer. I've got access to the usual list of treatment options and explanations, but anything you could add would be appreciated. Mostly, it would be good to hear from someone who's been through this, or who knows the ropes. I need to know what I should be listening for, just how scared I should be, what I should be preparing myself for. Anything you can offer would be gratefully accepted.

I'm sorry to bum everyone out, but I really need everyone possible to read this to get the widest information net I can. Thanks for your time and patience.

To those of you who know me well, please bear with me as I space out for the next few days. I'm still too numb to predict how I'll react once it sets in.
