You will be home tomorrow wondering what the big deal was all about..get walking as soon as you can, it makes a big difference in a quick and uneventful recovery..get all the catheter / pee bag stuff you can out of them! Two bags, large and small, and that upper thigh leg band to take any pull off the catheter..

You might have zero appetite at first, so a few cans of "Boost" , something like that, to get you going again...Good Luck!

Hey Wigged,

Happy Valentines Day!
You certainly won't have any trouble remembering the surgery date.
See you on the other side.

Good luck See you on the other side! You get to walk around with this tube hanging out of your dick for next week lucky you. You'll do good! Take care do what the Dr's and Nurses tell you to. And you don't have to go to work. Take care keep your spirits up. The work begins here but we're survivors.

Good luck!

I will be at NMH around 2pm today (21st floor Galter Bldg). I didn't see what time your surgery is scheduled, but if it was early enough, and if you are up for it, and if you'd like an afternoon visit from someone else who as been down the same road (2 yrs ago, at UC), and if you are back online before then, I'd be glad to drop in on you and say "hi."

I'd need to see in your reply some way of knowing who to ask for.

I'll check this thread later this afternoon from my Blackberry...

regards...
