Ms. Aimzee & Ron,
Ask your surgeon about retropubic surgery. Ms. Bluebirds threads are very informative about this procedure. Retropubic recovery times are comparable to Laperascopic/DaVinci surgeries.
Concerning Ron's previous surgeries:
My surgeons spent an hour starting me on DaVinci but due to adhesions from many previous abdominal surgeries (only got the camera through) - then had to do a "bikini cut" into the pubic cavity. (This is a lower abdominal incision.)
Ron's previous hernia repairs will likely have developed many adhesions that can get in the way of robotic/laperascopic surgery.
HELLO Ms. Blue and Mr. Tony!
I too was just quickly logging on to look for information on Dennis Hopper's passing.
Perhaps this high profile tragedy will slow the trend to discourage testing.
I still only have internet access at work.
God Bless all of you here as you help one another!
