    Prostate Cancer - My experience

    Thanks everyone for your input ,experiences, & wishes.Its great to see the advancement of new tests that has happened over the last few years eg DNA ,isoPSA etc.Info can be easily found over the internet & followed up with your Doctor or Urologist. The sooner that one can find out one way or the other whether you are clear, have a high risk of developing aggressive Prostate cancer or already have Prostate cancer the better. Hopefully this Topic helps everyone that has read it to do something to possibly save their lives. Please don't think that it wont happen to me & find out one day that you were wrong & possibly to late to do anything.Act now & do something.The ones that are doing something well done & keep it up. Simplyj its great to see what you are doing to help the cause, when I am back in action I will be joining the Prostate Group in my location & help fund raise & do what I can to help others. Best Wishes to All Regards Phil

    Prostate Cancer - My experience

    Yes the Davinci robotic machine is what I had & highly recommend. Also making sure that your Urologist is very experienced in using this machine, the more procedures that he has performed with this machine the better.

    Prostate Cancer - My experience

    Six weeks ago I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer after having had a biopsy. I had been monitoring my PSA readings for 6 years & it had been slowly rising up & down over this time from 3.5 gradually to 6.0. My Doctor then advised me to see a specialist which I did 4 weeks later & my PSA dropped to 5.8, my specialist booked me in for an MRI scan which came back all clear so he suggested to monitor my PSA reading in 3 months time,which we did & it had then risen to 7.2.He then said that we better do a biopsy to see what was going on, which 10 out of the 12 core samples came back positive for Cancer grade 7/10.I was then booked in to have a CAT scan to see if the cancer had spread out of the Prostate which after a stressful wait for the result came back clear & that the cancer had seemed to be contained in the Prostate.I have just returned home this weekend after having my Prostate removed by robotic surgery on 14th August. Now I have to work on trying to control my bladder for hopefully the next 6 to eight weeks but it could be longer.Then more tests(PSA) to follow for the next 5 years to make sure that the cancer doesn't return.So no work on my Mustang Resto for at least 2 to 3 Months. I'm writing this so that hopefully if any members that haven't been monitoring their PSA will take note & start doing it. Prostate Cancer is a silent killer ,I didn't feel any difference or changes in my health from 6 years ago .I'm 63 years old & a friend of mine had his cancerous Prostate removed 10 years ago when he was 45 years old. Hopefully what I have written here may save someones life. Regards Phil

    Engine Analyzer

    Thanks everyone so far for your input (you can PM me if you prefer), I haven't the experience that you all have that's why it's great to get your views & opinions.My engine (302 Windsor) is stock with points etc. & hope to keep it that way for now.I'm just an OLD non mechanical novice willing to learn. This site has great info & I'm learning a lot from your inputs in the Technical Forum.Much appreciated.Cheers Phil

    Engine Analyzer

    I thought one of these might be handy for what it says it can do,but it seems to be that no one uses them.Barnett 468 have you ever used one & if so what for? Cheers Phil

    Engine Analyzer

    Interested to know if anyone uses an engine analyzer, & if so what type is worth while to start with. Any info will be much appreciated. I am only slightly mechanically minded but willing to learn. There are so many on ebay to pick from. Are the ones that also have the attachment that clips around the spark plug leads any better? Is Sears a good brand (made in US ).Has anyone used a SEARS 28 21423 Engine Analyzer . Cheers Phil
  10. ralt962 I am pretty sure that I have seen some of these brackets on Fastbackstack on ebay in US.Contact Lee there he should be able to help you.Cheers Phil
  11. Has anyone got any photos of a 1970 D/Side Bullet mirror cable placement & how it is held inside the door shell.Any photos of how the latches & internal mechanisms stoppers etc are attached inside the door & also inside Rear quarter panel (coupe).Would be very much appreciated.Cheers Phil
