Dragonslayer, What a great name!. Welcome to the board. Your surgery was 1 day before my Wife and I celebrated our 38 year of marride life. The difficulty of PC and the healing process is different from anything i have been through before. Good luck with you healing.

Morning guys, glad I found this group. We all need someone to talk to that is going through the same thing.  I just had a two month psa <.1 and I have decided not to have rad at this time. I was scheduled because of pos margin but after psa have decided to wait and watch. Will decide after next psa but I wonder if I am doing the right thing.
I am 99% dry now after starting urine ph control and am half way back on ed.
Hate to mess that up.
Life is always good if we just look at it.
