I've been reading your daily diary. Sounds like you are progressing rather nicely, as I anticipated! The strength will increase each week. I'm sure your dog will take good care of you during the walks. Tell the Mrs. to stop worrying. You will be jogging at the six week mark, just like me.
Guess the talk back home is how 'Bama lost to the Bulldogs. Can't figure that one out yet either.
Re the perineum tenderness, I think you get the point from the previous posts. It's pretty universal out there; you will have tenderness for three-four weeks, just as your urologist at Vandy stated in the written material you received. Nothing to worry about. I, too, sat on a pillow for a week or two when I started driving post-surgery. The tenderness does goes away. I promise.
