What would you do if you weren't recovering from PC ?
I have determined in my own life that I am going to act and live the same way I did before PC after PC. Obviously, I need to have doctor checks, etc, maybe even SRT or HT, but as much as is practical, I am charging on ahead. I had surgery on Monday , back home on Thursday, at church on Sunday, leg bag and all. No one except for a few close friends ever knew.
It would be my opinion, that if you have an opportunity of a lifetime to live in Rome, and you and your family would like to do it, don't let PC rob you of the chance. Very worst case, if you did have a BCR, the Itailans have an excellent medical system.
Just my opinion. Sounds like a really neat opportunity.
