My dad stands alongside us all, as a fellow prostate cancer patient, as well ...
When I was first diagnosed, I had to undergo a lung biopsy & surgery, since the prostate cancer had infiltrated both of my lungs.
In the hospital, afterwards, I was attached to various tubes and IVs. One by one, the need for each of those was lessened ... but the catheter remained.
When I was released to go home, the catheter was still part of my daily living, while I still recovering.
From Dad's experiences, he emphasized the importance of healthy hydration.
The MOST important thing he taught me, was the importance of WALKING --- because that will help keep things "flowing" as well.
In Dad's famous words, "Fellows have to do whatever it takes to keep their 'WATERWORKS' flowing properly."
So --- my lesson learned from Dad --- "Keep hydrated, KEEP WALKING!"
