Arnie - did you attend a preop class - I was hoping to attend one but the one in January looks like it will be after my surgery.  If you attended - was it worthwhile?  Thanks  Ray

Hi Ray.......no, I didn't attend a pre-op class. Not sure I was aware of a formal offering, although things may have changed in a year. The Urology Dept at HUP sponsors seminars on a regular basis, and I attended one of those, post-op
 but nothing prior to surgery. I had most of my questions answered by Lee and/or Rachel, his PA, and the rest I gleaned from research. I'll email you my phone number, and if you have specific questions or concerns, I'll do my best to address them either by phone or email, whichever you prefer. You'll do fine, and be quite pleased with the whole experience there.

Ray,

good luck on the 13th. As I mentioned to you once before Dr. Lee is one of the best based upon what I heard from my Doc. You'll do great. If you have any questions drop me an email or post.

Thanks Len -

right now the days are flying by so there isnt much time to be nervous.  I'm sure that will kick in after the first.
