A week from today, I will be under the knive, so to speak. Been doing a lot of self reflection the past week. My emotions still range from being stoic and logical about
the whole PC thing, to feeling despair and anger. I am sure that is normal for all whom suffer this curse. Spent the day with my married daughter on Wednesday off antiquing in the mountains in NC. My wife and I are going on a picnic by ourselves this Sunday to catch the last of the leaves turning here in the Appalacian mountains.
The surgery doesn't bother or scare me, this will be my 5th since I turned 28. It's all the unknowns and uncertainties related to PC long and short term that eat away at me at times. I know this is an important first step, along a path that I can't see the end of at this point. I know the facts at hand, but also aware of all the high risk factors ahead.
Be glad when this part is over with, then like all the others here at HW, I will have learn about incontinence and ED. With a very supportive wife like I am so lucky to have, the ED part concerns me the least. Our long relationship spans way over having "normal" sex together She know that if it were the other way around, and she had breast cancer and had to have her breasts removed, it wouldn't change a thing with me in how I perceive her real beauty. Enough for now, sitting and waiting for another long week to pass.
