I would like to say this forum is great!  Reading what others have to say on the matter has helped me tremendously.  I had put a post out there stating that my hubby had most nerves removed and it turns out that is incorrect!  I was so upset at the hospital that I must have heard the doctor wrong.  He said most nerves were spared.  My hubby and I found that out today when we went to get the staples and cath removed.  It was like the sun turned on for us!  We practically left there skipping.  So far everything is good in that the bone scan was clear, bladder biopsy clear, colonoscopy clear, lymph nodes clear and cancer completely contained to the prostate.  It seem that we are coming out of this really dark depression we both had fallen into.
 
Thank you all so much for the support I/we recieve here.  God bless you all!
