I never thought of missing it at all. To be honest, until I started getting PSA tests at age 50, never ever thought about a prostate, let alone my own, and until I had my first biopsy at age 55, never worried about it.
Gall Bladder, lost that at age 28 to a severe case of pancreatitis. Had it removed in the old days with about an 8 inch ragged scar in my lower regions. Don't miss that either, keeps me from wanting to eat too much fried or spicy food, even to this day.
