My name is Dave, I'am 56 years old and I just had my prostate removed on April 7, 10 days ago. After staying in the hospital for 4 days I came home last Saturday. I just had the staples removed from the 8-9" incision on my stomach today. I feel that I am recovering fairly well as I was in pretty good physical shape before the operation.
The thing that is bugging me the most is the caphiter, it is hurting quite a bit, and is quite painful. I have wait for 3 more days until next Tuesday to get it removed. I wish there was something else I could do to lessen the pain. If there is anyone that has gone through the same experience and has any suggestions to lessen the caphiter from rubbing etc. any help will be appreciated.
I sympathise to anyone that is going through a similiar experience.
