What to Expect When...Saying Good-Bye to Your Prostate free pdf What could possibly be funny about prostate cancer and prostate-removal surgery? Almost everything, it turns out - if you let it be. This handbook memoir, written by prostate cancer survivor, actor, writer, producer, Jamie MacKenzie, walks men and their loved ones through all of the serious steps before them - from PSA numbers rising to determining whether to have a biopsy, from diagnosis to pre-op, from surgery to recovery - all while not only telling readers what to expect, but also showing them how to mine the inherent humor that will unexpectedly and mercifully accompany the fear. Written because the author, while acknowledging the many fine books available on the subject, felt that they were too dry and somber, and felt like an additional punishment to have to read- that what they lacked was first-hand access to the roller coaster of emotions one has when taking this harrowing, involuntary journey. With whimsical illustrations heading each chapter, reflecting its content, this heartfelt memoir disarms and encourages readers, reminding them that smiling is permissible even when faced with a serious health crisis. This is what it actually feels like to face prostate disease, to undergo prostate removal surgery, and to go forward with one's life, on a very personal and accessible level. This is an intimate celebration of humanity - with a portion of proceeds going to Prostate Cancer Research.
