My Gitar Playing Friend. New lyrics sung to the tune of "Act Naturally" by Buck Owens made even more famous by the Beatles sung by Ringo.
 
Well, their gonna go and take out my prostate
Their gonna make a real man outa me
When they take out my prostate I'm gonna be cancer free
You know when they take out my prostate it is the best thang for me
After they remove that dang ol prostate I will be able to pee
Chorus
Well I bet you I'm gonna be better man,  YOU FINISH THE SONG I'll give you co-writer credits
Maybe we can put together a band and tour.

You're lyrics are good man! How far from Oregon are you and your Gitar? I'll be thinking of you and Birdland on Thursday when I'm not thinking of myself.

Hey Spinbiscuit, Tommorrow is Surgery and I was wondering when we find out if we are undetectable?

Hey, Shepla. Just wanted to pipe in here, as a wife. Everyone reacts differently to post-surgery recovery and pain. However, you "may" have a sore throat from the tube; you "may" be very thirsty after no liquids, so will sip throughout the hours afterward (and into the night); you "may" have really dry lips (ask the nurse for lip balm). They will give you IV antibiotics and anti-bladder-spasm medication. (You'll probably also get pills for anti-bladder spasms to take at home, too, for 2-3 days.

They will probably have you up for a short spin around the floor a few hours afterward, but you don't have to push it if you don't feel like it. They'll probably bring you soft foods for dinner, like Jell-O and soup.

Those are just a few "little" things I can think of.

AND, I might add, remember this is major surgery. We sound very breezy in the aftermath - but it's important to not overdo anything until you get the go-ahead from your doctor.

Oh, and our pathology reporat was announced when we back a week later for the catheter removal. Some doctors will call as soon as they get it - which would be much sooner. The first PSA was ordered 7 weeks post-surgery. I think some get it done at 4 weeks.

Looks like we are off and running for our date with DaVinci. It is a little after 6:00 Pacific. It's sort of funny I  feel like I do the night before we are going on a big trip, anxious and excited that it is going to finally happen. I will post a report as soon as I can after the surgery. I want to thank everyone that has been involved here with their stories and encouragement whether you have posted or not. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

Hi Shepla, Birdland, & 56 Pontiac,

The first test for PSA will be 1-3 months after your surgery depending on you doctor. As far as post-op is concerned the nurse will encourage you to get up and walk as soon as posible. Many will be going home after 24 hours; I got to lounge around for 36. Because I had the catheter and a drain tube for 5 days I just wore a 4x t-shirt like a night shirt, and a light robe. This made walking around the house a lot easier. Good luck today we are thinking of you.

Glen
