This day, 2 years ago, I had my surgery, and I am blessed and thankful, everything went alright. Post PSA was undetectable and I am doing great. Changed my life style (watching what we eat and routinely exercise). Lost about 15 lbs and 2 pant size. I do still wear one pad a day (maybe I'll change is to liner after I finished the last package) just to make sure. I work in the warehouse process worker so you never know when you lift a heavy stuff. Sometimes you could feel a drop or two after you just got off from urinating. You can't just wait and wait until there is no more drop. As to the other side of the story, the ED still a problem, though it works a little bit with the Levitra. However, it's not a 100% erect, just enough to penetrate for a very short period. Anyway... this is not really a big concern.. my wife understands. Our biggest thing was it's the fully recovery from the cancer.

Merry Christmas to all.
