Thanks to everyone for prayers and support.
I had radical surgery on 2/20/2007. All went well with both nerve bundles spared. Spent 3 days in hospital and had catheter removed on 3/8. Some incontinence when walking or when bladder is filled. Getting a little anxious to get back to work.
Thanks again!

Glad to hear your surgery is behind you and all went well.  Don't be in too much of a hurry to get back to work - you have some healing to do.

Take care,
