cool  
It was 2 years ago today I had my RRP. My PSA tests have all been at .01. I am dry except for a few drops sometimes in the evening if I do some activity. I can pee like a race horse so when I go to a public restroom I am usually last in and first out. I use to hate going to those places. I am single again which is very strange. I have changed the way I live my life, eat and socialize. Life is good for the most part. I feel guilty sometimes because everything after surgery has so good when other people are having dificult times.

:-)  Thanks for all the replies. I do not post much on HW, but I have been following it everyday for about a year and a half. It is great therapy. You go to the Dr's office and you here what they want to tell you. You go here and you here the truth in life right from the horses mouth. Thanks again and wishing everyone the BEST. Springer
