Got an early Christmas present today at the DR's office.For almost a year ago now,I am cancer free. It has been a long year.I only wish folks like Ralph could also get the same gift.Stay well and eat hearty.
Wonderful, Jack!!! We hope and pray that you remain cancer free.
Same here. Saw the doc today and got the news that a year after surgery my PSA is still down where it belongs. He threatens radiation if it bumps up, but so far so good. Good luck to all of us who are experiencing these little adventures.
Great news! Always great to hear when someone is winning the battle!
It's been about 2 1/2 years since my surgery and I'm still cancer free. It is great to hear good news from you guys!!!
Jack & Steve - I feel the same way,....seven years plus since my "prostatectomy" and then seven weeks of daily radiation and my annual PSA test came back still "immeasurable" which is where we want it!
Hey,....at our age guys, EVERY day is a gift!
Henry - I missed your post! Congratulations to you too!
I'm doing everything I can to flatten my decline.
That's great news, Uncle Jack. You'll need to buy twice as much stuff this year at Chickasha to make up for missing last year due to that little "inconvenience."
Ralph -- Hang in there; we're all pulling for you.
Still praying for you Jack. Glad you are doing well.
Congrats to all you guys! We can all only hope for good health "until death do us part"! Harold, I agree with you but I go one step further...every day is a gift no matter WHAT age we are!! I thank God every morning for letting me wake up. (well, almost every morning...sometimes I forget...until about noon!)
And, HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL! Let us thank the Lord for all our blessings, even our troubles, for they make us who we are.
Great news Jack. May you be forever "free"
Great news Jack. See you at Chickasha in March .Have a great Thanksgiving!
Wonderful to see such news, all of you! Thank you Jack D, and all, for the updates.
Drive carefully, and do enjoy! W2
Congratulations. It's good to get good news.
Good news Jack, and the rest of you fighting "issues." Happy Thanksgiving.
Old Chinese saying: " Nothing is impossible to a Willing heart."

Great new's,Just keep getting checked up because sometimes it come's back! Bud.
For Steve and Henry.
It is heart warming to hear you you two and Jack
have fought the good fight and are now in good health.
Thanks to God you are all with your families for thanksgiving and what more can you ask for.
God Bless you and all the rest on the site today.
Jack, that is great news!
Ralph, still praying that you continue to experience "deceleration.
It has been 16 months since I received the same blessed news and I am very thankful to be here and doing some of my projects!
Have a great Thanksgiving everyone.
Good news Jack, I'm happy for you. I had the same procedure in 2008 and still cancer free also. Stay healthy.
Dan, We're happy for you too! We hope and pray that all who have "licked it" so far will remain cancer free.
Been 10 years and still cancer free here. No radiation, just the surgery. PSA still less than .1.
Jack, Congratulations and welcome to the "Survivors Club". After 15 years I can attest to the fact that there is life after cancer. Now your responsibility is to help others not quite so fortunate.
Thanks everyone. I have been a cancer survivor since 1999. I have Lymphoma ,and always will,but it is in remission for a little over ten years now. This last esophageal cancer was a lot tougher.
great, jack----time to push your" use by" date up a few years---paul
