Each Perspective is Different and should not come into question. My own personal opinion of course!!! J chirp chirp
I am responding to postings on SaraMurphy’s Thread: Shocked and Scared (A thread needing kindness, care, and understanding as to her feelings ~ something…. we have all experienced or we wouldn’t be here… right!)
I really don’t like to go completely off track on someone’s personal thread….so decided to put this in a new thread. I needed to respond to a posting that just didn’t settle well with me. I do not wish to offend anyone. I feel strongly that we are here to support each other ~ in what every direction we go in.
Research is part of this process… and our support is invaluable ~ no matter what the individual’s choice is.
Our decisions are our decisions…. There are no wrong decisions.
We each travel different roads to find the answer to our questions and pull from many different options ~ to make that final decision.
I am so thankful that this forum allows us to share our experiences…. Which in turn helps others to see what’s out there…. I think sharing should be just that…sharing your journey and what you experienced. Good, Bad, & Ugly…. This is true sharing.
3 Partial Quotes from 1Mikec to SJC previous postings on Shocked and Scared / SaraMurphy
o But seriously, You're the first that I've heard of that had open surgery that turned out so great. Congratulations. We are all happy for you.
o If you have an experienced doctor, Robotic Laproscopic is the answer!
o My original Urologist wanted to do it the old fashioned way so I switched doctors.
Maybe I’m reading the quotes above…wrong… ~~ But it just didn’t settle well with me.
Buddy & Lee can also be congratulated on a wonderful recovery/healing process with open surgery.

Partial Quote from SJC previous posting on Shocked and Scared / SaraMurphy
I hope you take my post in the spirit it is intended. I am not an advocate of one procedure over the other. I am an advocate of selecting the finest surgeon out there in terms of experience and credentials, be he rob/lap or open.
Partial Quote from EB02 previous posting on Shocked and Scared / SaraMurphy
I think that SJC's post on 10/13 is one of the best I have ever seen on this forum.
I agree with EB02….. I appreciate SJC’s postings. And it would not have mattered to me whether it was rob/lap or open. It was “his journey” and his reasons for selecting this procedure over another… that he shared.
Make your decisions and know they are the right decisions for you J
