Being 245 lbs at 6 2, I am probably considered obese. I like to refer to it as just big.
I don't jog, ride bikes, or play golf, but I am very active at work, and on weekends. Still probably not considered fit in the athletic sense.
I attributed some of that to my 8 month recovery time for IC, but it did happen. I think luck of the draw is probably more the truth than anything. I know many of you guys are much more fit than I , and some have had great success, some haven't.
From a plumbing perspective, I think it has to do also how we were built. Some prostates are right up against the bladder, so they don't have to cut out so much urethra, others are farther down, necessitating more urethra, hence more of the sphincter type muscles removed.
