Paul, didn't think about
acidity. He is drinking orange juice and tomato juice. Guess we should cut that back a bit. Thank you for the reply.
Hi David, You are right about
caution. He just hates calling the doctor and expects it all to go away. I can't convince him otherwise most of the time. But considering the part of the body that it involves, I think he will change his mind. :)
All is well here except for the continual incontinence. Good sometimes but still a battle. But of course, I know it takes time and we are working on understanding the "time" part.
Thank you for writing
Glad all is going well for you!
