    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I went through the same thing in 2003 and elected to have RLRP (robotic surgery). I've written a book - just now out on Amazon.com - "Dead Men Don't Have Sex. A Guy's Guide to Surviving Prostate Cancer." You might find it helpful. I wrote for guys like (us).
