Just wanted to say that Kent and I thank you so much for all the support we have received over the few months. You have helped us thru the roughest part of our lives. From the beginning to the lst PSA test of ZERO! I have prayed and sent thoughts of hope and strength to all of you from our tiny part of the world.
We, for ourselves, need to step back for awhile and move forward. We have become too dependent on dwelling and need to get out and live life more and not think so much. This is what we need to do for us but for all just beginning or maintaining, this is the best place to be. I have never met so many wonderful and caring people that have helped us thru this challenging time in our lives.
I will check in from time to time and again thank you all again for being there for us. If anyone ever has a question about Perineal surgery, please don't hesitate to email. My email is listed.
Cindy and Kent

Home 4-11 - incision looks completly healed on the outside by 4-25
Cath out 4-22 dripping some
5-25 only uses a pad if going out "just in case". No dribbling to speak of.
Cialis 5 mg at night to start. Didn't agree with system. Viagra 50 mg daily. Was having erections but now not I guess due to the fact we can't afford for him to take the Viagra everyday.
