..nah, take your time if you can. I've still not gone back to work. Planning on going next week, we have a pretty good sick leave plan, plus I"ve been piling up sick leave for thirty-two years....I've decided I'm going to use some of it!.....I walked all over town with my cath in, put it in a bag, tube coming out of my gym shorts.....I'm wanted someone to ask me what was up, my reply......."when was the last time you had your PSA checked"?....had a pretty fair number make appointments to get it done. That is still so surprising so many men dont' even know what a PSA test is.....I think it's up to us to help get the word out...
