Hi Squid, sorry to hear about your setback. I'll be looking forward to hearing about your progress on becoming dry.
Doting Daughter, I'm happy to hear your father has reached the dry spell. It certainly is a good feeling.
James C., Thanks for the response. I enjoyed the video, I'll check it out again since it certainly is worth watching.
Jeff, hang in there! There's still time for healing. I couldn't believe how long it really takes.
Magaboo, I'm definitely trying to instill some hope in those of us that still are experiencing leakage.
Steve, I'm sorry to hear your Uro doesn't spend the time with you that you need. I've had the good fortune to have a doctor who says he'll spend all the time with me that I think I need. He really follows through with that and he has an incredible bedside manner.
All, thank you so much for listening. I spend a lot of time reading this forum but maybe not enough time responding. I rejoice when I read about the successes and feel sad when I read about the setbacks and failures.
