Condition (and age)seems very important and it seems you'll get through it quite easily IMO. When I(aged 49) first heard the news on PC in late April I went on a weight losing project by fast walking two miles each day and climbing some steps. I'm 6'3 and weighed in at 265 prior. On Sept 11 when I did the DaVinci I was down to 233. I'm certain it had alot to do with my recovery.
I had the worm pulled out yesterday, and quite dry...big relief! Two "diapers" Depends in 24 hours, minor leakage. Slept well but had to get up three times to pee...can't seem to hold much in the bladder at the moment. I started the kegels three months ago but quit after six weeks upon hearing a few reports here of over excercising. Since being realeased from the hospital on 9/12 did I start the kegels again. Dr. only suggested six sets each evening--that's it.
Nine days later and back to work however long I want to because I own a business. I could probably put in an eight hour day, but why push it..my butt gets sore quickly. Book? I was in a daze for 24 hours.
