Hi Lee & Buddy so nice to hear from you, hope you are both ok, also any one out there who remembers me hope you all are doing well, im doing fine, dont get on here to much been so busy back at work catching up, seems so long ago now since op but all is ok so far just waiting for 1st psa test in april, getting a bit anxious about that but hopefully it will be ok, still get a slight leak now and then but mostly when im bending down and putting pressure on the bladder, havnt had to wear pads since op and have full control over urine, as for the other side effect sex life seems to be back to normal, weird having a dry orgasm but less mess and feels the same as before, erections come and go when they please and have a mind of their own but with a little help from the great blue pill i can normally manage, i suppose im one of the luckier ones as the side effects go and im very thankful for that, now just trying to get back to some sort of normal life, i know its always going to be hanging over us but hey you have got to move on, whats going to happen is going to happen and nothing will change that, but like us all i will worry about that if i have to when it happens.
Always scan the posts on here so i will keep an eye out for you all, nice posting again, be lucky.

Hey Mike,

Nice to hear that everything is okay with you. We have missed your wit and optimism here.

Good luck on the PSA in April. I have one on April 4 also and I guess I will always be a little apprehensive about it. So I hope we both have good news...

RRP 12/7/06. Nerves and nodes okay.
Pathological stage: T2B. Gleason 3+4. Cancer confined to prostate.
