Sorry to be so late reporting in, but I was away from a computer for several days, then when we got home, ours had died. also, the drugs made me less than coherent and i still can't sit at a desk chair!
Surgery went well. No sign of cancer outside the gland. They saved both nerve bundles.
I was unprepared for the pain. I've had two back surgeries and after testimonials about the da vinci, I thought it would be much less than it is. The morphine helped at the hospital, but certainly had to take percocet for a couple days at home. Dr. Samadi said things went very well and he was happy with it all.
The catheter thing is just a pain in the butt...not anywhere else, thank god.
My dick certainly doesn't feel any different - so I have to remind myself that it not going to be acting like itself once the catheter comes out. that is going to be weird- once again, it will have a mind of its own, but not the mind it used to have!
I know the answer to most of it is just time and patience.
thanks for all your support. I'm now part of the club. Probably the only club that would let me join! HAHA
