The above post is from LarryC, about to have surgery on Thursday.
We welcome you Larry, wish you all the best on your surgery tommorow, and look forward to seeing you on the other side, the recovery side. Your post doesn't say if your operation is open or robotic. Hopefully with a PSA of 5 and a Gleason of 6 less then 2 months ago, your dr/surgeon will be able to do a good job on you and get the cancer.
Please keep us posted as soon as you feel better.
