Jr, here's a few suggestions for getting ready:
For the next few weeks, eat healthy, get as much exercise as you can. If you can, get your core strong. Learn how to do Kegals, and start doing them.
Get the following supplies:
Waterproof mattress pad to sleep on at least until the catheter comes out
Waterproof absorbent pads for your chair (the doggie training pads are the same thing and cheaper)
Baggy gym shorts
"Basketball pants" (sweat pants with snaps down the legs)-work really well with the catheter tube
A small table next to your recliner for your laptop, water cup, remote, etc.
A good supply of your favorite DVD's (daytime TV stinks!)
Dulcolax (stool softener)
A shower bench (I borrowed one)
Oh, one more thing to do: empty that prostate as often as possible between now and then.
