Hi ~ Pete…
Great news early…. We had you marked down to check on you on Monday…. And was thrilled to see your posting today!!!! We are excited that you plan to start a Thread with “Your Journey” and all that it entails. A gift of giving…
I spent time the other day talking to a wife and sister about this board. It gave me “turkey bumps”… just sharing how powerful this forum is to all of us. And it gave me a very warm feeling inside to see some of the fear leave their faces as we talked about prostate cancer and the stepping-stones ahead of them…
Excerpts from “Our Journey ~ Sharing is Caring”.
Items to have on hand before surgery:
BE PREPARED: Coming home with a catheter?
(D) Preparing for surgery: Get your prescriptions filled before your surgery date so you don't have to get it on the way home..!!! And start taking a mild stool softener so you don't get constipated!! You don't want to get
(E) Bladder Spasms:
(F) Constipation is something you do not want to have to deal with
