Staff at Brady Urological (NYP/Cornell) was top notch in every way.

The full surgical path report (7 days after surgery) was as good as can be expected (given the circumstances!)

At 12 days past surgery; 5 days past catheter removal:

Dealing with some diaper rash and incontinence...control is coming back slowly; daily improvement.

Doing Kegels to "plug leaks"; walking 3 miles/day and drinking 3 quarts/day.

This is a very helpful forum and you all make it what it is: thank you!

Dan, sounds like you are doing great. That Gleason 6 and the low tumor volume are good signs too. So glad you are on the recovery side, may you heal quickly and well.

Diaper rash -- for a while I used those pre-moistened baby wipes regularly. It seemed to help

Pathology: Lymph nodes & Seminal vesicles negative
Margins positive, Capsular penetration extensive Gleason 4+3=7
6 weeks: 1 pad/day, 1 pad/night -- mostly dry at night.
10 weeks: no pad at night -- slight leakage day/1 pad.

Reply to Steve n Dallas -

The walking/drinking 3qts a day (12 glasses) is Dr. Tewari's protocol.
