Congrats Bob D.!! Nice to hear that things are "looking up" and only three months out with no meds!! FANTASTIC.
However -- not to burst a happy balloon here, but I was told that post-op guys should avoid hot tubs for at least six weeks or so after surgery. Something to do with the internal coagulation/healing process.
So to all you recent post-op guys, I say avoid soaking in hot water until you consult with your doc.
Best to ya,
