Bob Stroble: My name is Bob Stroble and I am at Prostrate Cancer Survivor and have about 13 years. I was working at the air base and the air force reserved, to getting my physicals all the time. I am 56 I know I am going to retire so I'll decide let me get a 00:17 in physical. The doctor gave me the physical and routine they gave me a PSA test which I've never gotten before and all of a sudden the PSA was 15. They called me in and made a referral to a very good doctor, Dr. Bilsky. I want to see him did the PSA, did a Needle Biopsy and Sonogram, bingo they found it and I have the prostate removed by surgery. I thought I was cancer free for four and a half years. but then after four and a half years my PSA, the number started to rise again. When they got up to 10 which was in 2001 my doctor recommended Salvage Radiation which was to try to catch still in the prostate bed, it didn't make it, but was a shot, we'll roll the dice and so it went down and when I got back up again to five which is in two years ago doctors started me on loop run. Now I am on another end but my PSA now is .03 and holding I am still got the cancer. But the cancer is being 01:22 and I am doing well I take every side effect that goes with every treatment because I am still here.
