|Lady Mary and Matthew|
I made my decision for treating my prostate cancer. After talking to several prostate cancer survivors and viewing You Tube videos of the different procedures I have decided that the radiation therapy is best for a man my age. If I was a younger man perhaps I would go for the prostate removal but I just don't want to take the chance of being incontinent for the rest of my life.

This morning I made the call to the radiation oncology center and left a message for them to call me back. I have to make an appointment to get this procedure rolling. I know this will be time consuming (probably five times a day for at least twelve weeks) but it is something that has to be done. I would prefer just to have my prostate removed but because of my near death experience with a hernia operation when I was seventeen years old (17 now I'm 71, I am superstitious), I just have this foreboding feeling that I would have disastrous side effects from the operation.
Oh I am going to miss "Downton Abbey." But I'm going to have my own little "series" coming up when I get zapped everyday, five days a week, for twelve weeks. I'll get through this.
