New survey idea
--what's the correlation between PCa and how long you wear your underware between changes?
What is it about
astronauts and underware. Remember the lady who drove nonstop to Florida using a load of Pampers? Hey, it's funny how that story strikes me differently, having had the PCa experience now. I can think to myself, if I were driving nonstop for 500 miles, which would I use, Pampers or a catheter and leg bag?
