Thanks for all the input. Tomorrow is D-day. Traveled 12 hours to Mayo, last 3 hours on ice patches, yesterday. Pre-op procedures and tests today, RRP tomorrow about noon. Next post will be post-surgery. Will keep you all up-to-date in future to help others like you all helped me.

I've been thinking about you and your 12-hour drive.  Glad you made it OK.  The surgery should be a piece of cake after that ordeal.  Look forward to hearing from you on the other side of surgery.
