HI guys , I'm not much of a talker. I;ve never bloged before. Privte person. I'm 64.Have been watching my postrate  since  09. In april 2010 The doc told me I had cancer, but their was no hurry  I worked the summer, As a carpenter, winters are slow so I decided to have robotic seg. Dec. 13 2010 The orp went good. 3 hr. Cancer was kept in my postrate Cat. was out Dec 20 2010  I dont know all the readings. I will find out  Friday.  The doc. said we coud watch the cancer, I didn't like that, So I had it removed. Im leaking   5 pads a day, nights are dry  The V.A. gives me pampers,  any of you vets can get them. God bless you all .and thanks for the help   Mike

Welcome - we hate to get new members, but it seems they just keep coming.
Sounds like you are doing pretty well so far. I was at 8 pads a day and multiple depends at your point. It will get better. Nights being dry is a great sign.
Get a copy of the pathology report from the doc before you leave the appointment. You'd be surprised how much information there is that the doc won't mention, but will help you understand where you are.
Get started walking and doing the kegels.
