see you and I are fellow accountant, I usually work as a CFO or Controller in smaller firms.
Yes, I feel fortunate with my GP, I run everything past him with my health. When my first couple of PSA were already on the high side of "normal" two or three years back, it was my GP that gave me my primer on PC in general and the usual treatment options. His senior partner, a dr who was about
65 at the time, had a bad case of PC himself. He was one of the first people I knew of with PC, and one of the first that had robotic surgery in Atlanta. I remember he came back to his practice quickly, catheter and all.
Yes rob, 14 days on a catheter is still a good piece, but yeah, after my fiasco and 66 days, seems like such short time. Everything is relative, lol.
happy to see that you are continent and have such good post surgery psa. the ed part, boy, that's a loaded one with so many variable and different endings. hope that improves with you over time. you are still less then a year out of surgery, so it may take good patience. my best to you
