I just noticed your post, it seems to have slipped down a bit. You bring several very interesting ideas that I think deserve comment. In the good old USA we have been told for the past several decades or so, that it is good to get out of the hospital quickly and on our own so we can really recover. I think we all know that that thinking has been promoted by the greedy American insurance companies and their Republican law maker stooges. It also might be right.
I must admit, that I screamed and clawed to get out of the hospital at the earliest possible time. However, I think there is something about being "taken care of" that might be better for all of us. It would be interesting to explore the difference between being booted out in 24 hours to being taken care of for a week.
The fact that you are apparently suffering few of the continence and sexual side effects of prostate surgery should at least suggest that we examine the difference.
Thanks for your post
