Thank you Sephie, Kylie, and Alfred for your responses.
It is strange to come here and seek advice from strangers. Right now Ron is in a state of denial. He is in good health, not overweight, and is active. We have two books on Prostate Cancer which sort of gives us an idea of what to expect. Actually, I have found out more here than from the books.
Alf, I wish my husband could have the robotic surgery instead of the perineal prostactecomy. This is what his urologist recommends. Next week we will meet with the multidisciplinary oncology team to explain other treatments. There are many concerns, but one has to do with physical activity.
Someone mentioned needing a pillow because of a jumping cat. I have not seen our concerns mentioned. We watch our young Grandchildren (ages 2 and three years) while their parents work. They love playing with their Papa, everything from baseball to hide 'n seek. Obviously, he won't be doing too much of that for awhile. I don't know how we will deal with this aspect of life.
Funny isn't it, that I am more concerned about the little ones than about our love life! We just don't know how fast he'll bounce back and can have a normal life again.
Thank you for the welcome.
