I'm sorry you have to go through this process. We know its not fun but its also not the end of the world or even the end of living as you know it......, once you get over the initial panic and shock! The medical field has made great strides in this area and when PC is caught early, as it appears your is by the numbers you've given, a cure is very possible.
You will need someone to drive you home from the hospital at the very least as you will most likely be medicated. Does Canada have any kind of Social Services that could help you? At the hospitals in the USA there are Social Workers who can help arrange to have nurses come to your home everyday for a while and make sure your getting the care you need. Is there anything like that at your hospital that you could ask for help?
You will not be totally disabled from the procedure Magaboo. You will be able to walk around and they will show you how to take care of your catheter and things like that. It is just nicer if there is someone there to help you but sometimes that is not always possible. Make sure you get all the things you need before your surgery, such as pain medication, pads, comfortable clothing, easy meals, etc.
Lastly, know that you have found a great source of support at this forum. The people are sincere and understand what you are going through because we have all been through it. They are here whenever you need them. Don't hesitate to ask questions and learn all you can. You'll be just fine Magaboo. I know thats hard to believe right now but you will.
