Hey guys thanks.....Biker I'm working on those laps, but man-o-man the humidity has been fun here, but then these extra things I have hanging out and off of me dont help I'm sure, but doing great!.......To you Rip thanks....our little talk before helped alot, same Doc's, same hospital, and I will be getting that hard copy and some pictures....my girlfriend wanted to see the procedure on film, pictures will have to do!
Nemo, you'll do great... the waiting is the hardest as I'm sure you've heard a few times....it'll be over before you know it and you my friend will up and cruising the hallways!! Good luck brother..
As far as myself, still doing fine. Eating alittle more, still have my cath and JP drain. Thinking I will get the JP removed sometime this afternoon as it's slowed down enough that I can make the call to the Dr. I won't have to go down to have them do it as we made arraingments for my gal to remove after speaking with the office(kinda' nice having my nurse around, but daggone, my Payback is going to be HUGE:)). I won't get the catheter out until Friday, at least that's when I go back down to the office, get my x-rays etc. All seems to be going well, urine is clear, no pain...so I have no reason to believe otherwise and remain positive on the rest of the recovery process.....thanks guys and gals, I do feel all the good and positive that comes from all of you....quite a group we have here!
oh yeah, my brother-in-law was Dx'd the day before my surgery....PCa...I don't know any of his numbers as he's not really had that first appointment. Trying to get him to this site, I think he's been lurking some....OK, I'm really out this time, off to play with my best friend in the shower again, I think it's getting the "hang" of it!!! Later all....
