Just got off the phone with Sonny.  He just got off the phone with both Mel and Mel's wife.  He said that Mel was doing great, feeling pretty good, some mild pain issue, which to be expected.  He did have the SP catheter in place, no foley at this time.  Sonny gave a good positive report, and passed on all our support and love for our brother there.
 
I for one, am so glad it went well for him.  Hopefully additional details will be coming soon.

Everyday I read your posts and have come to understand what a great group people you are. YOU are there before, during and after.
I too wish for a speedy recovery, little discomfort for Mel, and yes, Mel was quite well prepared. God bless

Soon, we will be getting our things together for surgery on the 11th of Feb. Getting alittle nervous, but we continue to take a big breath and move ahead.

Look forward to reading Mel's entries

Thanks for the update on Mel.  So glad to hear that everything went well.

Welcome, Towers.  This is a great group to be among.  Just three months past surgery myself.  Glad to be on this side of the surgery and I know you will too.

Age:  63 
Biopsy: May 09 showed 2 of 12 cores positive for prostate cancer -- 1 at 5% and 1 at 25%.  Cancer indicated as non aggressive.  Gleason Score: 3+3.
RRP on Oct 23/09 in London, Ontario.  Excellent surgeon. 
7 Weeks Post Op -  The fears I had about bad things about the operation and recovery did not materialise except of course ED!!.  Otherwise, everything went very smoothly.  Incontinence not a problem.  Wear a pad when out just in case. Pain was never a problem.
Pathology:  Unremarkable 
First followup PSA and Visit: Feb 07/10.
