Hey Sonny, great to hear from you again and thanks for the interesting catheter report. The next time I have my prostate out, that's what I'm going to try to do.
I'm a fan of walking, and drinking, and walking, and drinking, but I'm worried with the walking that you might over do it. I'm not sure anything more than a quarter to half a mile, a couple times a day, makes any difference on the up side, but I do know that if you over do it, that's not good. I don't want to discourage you, but recovery is no time to be pushing yourself beyond what's optimal. But, of course, I don't really know what optimal is.
Keep on with those reports,
