Thanks Hero, I'm on the other side now.

Surgery went well, no major problems so far, usual stuff dealing with the catherer, gas and light constipation.

Pathology report/new Gleason score is the next thing to wait for.

Mark, good luck, and glad you are on the recovery side. Waiting for that pathology report is always a bit nerve wracking, but the good news, is that can't put the junk they took out of you back! It's gone for good.

Rest and get well.

Mark,
Welcome to the other side. Relax and enjoy the game tonight. You can drink as much beer as you want without worrying about filling pee pads. Here's a tip for you: Drill a 7/16 hole in the floor above your sump pump and run some tygon tubing to the crock. Clip a clothespin on the tubing above where it goes into the floor so it doesn't pull. You'll never have to leave the room and can enjoy the game and commercials too.
Keep smiling. That is 1/4 the battle.
