Glad to hear the good news if there is a such thing with PC. I know it is a relief to know it is contained. Stay positive and active, and keep the faith alive and well. God has work for you to do.

peace and love

Hi ace06,
Welcome to "the other side". Now just take it easy for a few weeks and give your body a chance to heal. Soon you could start some kegels and walking, but don't over do it! Your postop report looks quite good and you should be able to look forward to a quick and complete recovery.
All the best to you.
