My father had prostrate cancer. He was not getting himself check out, so by the time the symptoms were present, he was on the scale of a 7 (1 to 3
they treat with drugs, 4 to 6 drugs and therapy, 7 to 10 requires removal of the prostrate followed by radiation and kemo).
Prior to the surgery, he was very robust, energetic and just full of life at 67. The surgery was tramatic enough, but after the radiation and kemo was
done (and they declared him cancer free because his PSA was less than 0.33), it was like they had aged him by 20 years.
He was a shell of the man I knew, and this happened in less than 6 months.
Then 4 years later, he developed stomach cancer. By the time they knew that is what it was, they had to go in and remove 2/3 of his stomach and put
him back on the treatments.
Ten months later he was dead at 72.
