I had a good day today!
After a long and sleepless night I drove my first post op appointment. They did a cystogram, no leaks in the bladder connection. Next it was over to the dr.'s office for the post op pathology. Final stage PT2c NX MX. All contained in the prostate and negative margins. Then the catheter came out and I was sent home.
To top things off, after arriving home I had my first post op BM. Can't ask for a better day.
