This site is great!
Where else can you go to get guys to open up on subjects such as leakage (from my prior post).
I did have my RALP surgery. I am in my 3rd day of recovery. Overall, pain wasn't too bad. It's more like a major discomfort. I knew that the "catheter thing" was going to be annoying - but I didn't expect it to be THAT annoying. It's like it is it's own appendage.
Experiencing some swelling in the legs and noticed that a portion of my testicles are "black-n-blue". Had anyone experienced either one of these? It's hard to tell what is normal anymore.
Just had my first BM today....I was "really" trying to be careful with that - especially since the doctor said "no straining". Been taking the stool softeners (not sure if they really do anything).
Been continuously walking around the house just to keep the circulation going. I'm keeping in mind what everyone has stated, "take it easy". So, I'm resting alot.....which is good for me physically - but mentally, I wish I could do more. I guess, "physical" wins!
First post-op appt is 2/1.....I will hopefully be able to say, "bye", to my catheter.
