I have been absent for a while. Since my "journey" has stabilized with my lovely AUS there is not much to report.
I just wanted to say how much I appreciate all the help and comfort I received from the Brothers on this list over the last couple of years. It is one of the best things I ever found to get unbiased information to cross check which the medical professionals (God Bless Them) provide.
 
HAPPY NEW3 YEAR and may all your Journeys end in SUCCESS IN 2011. tongue

Happy New Year to you as well. Not much to report here either but I just have to read the post. Tallguy you menitioned if we are ever in you neck of the woods you would share some of the wine. That would be great. Hope one day to do that. You are also welcome to the lovely state of Louisiana.

Would love you to come in with my other brothers from the North East in April.

GOOD TO SEE YOU ARE OVER THE HUMP. I AM STILL CONSIDERING SLING OR AUS. JUST HAND URODYNAMIC AND CYSTO TESTS DONE. I AM ON IMPRAMINE NOW TO SEE IF IT HELPS.  I'LL BE IN TOUCH WITH YOU AGAIN. HAPPY NEW YEAR.

tallguy,
I'm glad to hear that the AUS is keeping you dry - may be one of those in my future, so keep us updated.
 
And enjoy the New Year!
