Any serious illness like prostate cancer, can shake up an individual and his family. But spirituality has a restorative capacity that helps people make it through the worst of times. In my case this applied most recently to my prostate cancer diagnosis and surgery nearly three years ago and subsequent treatment side effects like ED and a low libido.
Faith can buoy people up. I refer to faith in a Higher Power, that many refer to as "God"; faith in one's doctor, and his ability to heal; and faith in one's capacity to bounce back even from a serious illness.
In addition the tendency to see the partially filled glass of life as half full rather than half empty makes all the difference in effecting a speedy recovery.
Your ability to recover from prostate cancer treatment will be reinforced by your prayers for continued strength in the face of adversity. It also helps to know that a community of caring people had offered their sincere prayers for your return to good health.
