If you Get a Plantar Wart Removed

Your Doctor might ask if you have had any blood work done.
If your Doctor asks if you "have had any blood work done lately" you might say "no never".
If you say "no never" he might look at you like you are crazy and order blood work.
If he orders blood work you will get a PSA.
If you get a PSA it might be high.
If it is high, you'll need to see a urologist.
If you see a urologist he might give you a prostate biopsy.
If he give you a prostate biopsy you just might find out you have prostate cancer, but only on one side and will consider yourself really fucking lucky that you had to have that plantar wart removed.

We recently found out that The Mr. has prostate cancer.

I guess I am in the acceptance phase right now since I have found that just ignoring the cancer will not make it less of a fact.
The last couple of weeks have been full of anger and sadness. Spending lots of time investigating treatments. Next week we will meet with his Dr. again to discuss what we have learned and get his recommendations.

Make sure your Mr. gets his PSA levels done so they can be compared if they begin to rise.
