Back from Nashville without the catheter. Trip was not quite as bad as expected. I am eating just about
anything I want and my inner workings are beginning to feel normal. I have periods of incontinence. It appears to be when I first try to stand up. Shortly after 1 AM this morning I began having bladder spasms. The feeling at first was like I was loaded up ( full bladder ). It continued to progress until I was feeling pain equal to #8. I took some Tylenol around 2AM and the pain was bearable by 4AM. It is now 11:30 AM and there is no pain. I am taking each AM 2 Tylenol 500mg, 1 Celebrex 200mg, 1 Cipro antibiotic, and a Ducalax stool softener, this is repeated in the PM without Celebrex. I walked about
a mile this AM. My removed prostate patholgy report was different from my earlier biopsy report. Instead of 7 ( 3+4 ) it was now 7 ( 4+3 ). This means my Gleason was closer to 8 than 6 according to Dr. Dasari. As stated earlier he believes he has removed all cancerous tissue and after reading the report he appears to be correct. In one area the cancer was closer to the edge than one MM. I really am lucky to have been able to get this taken care of fast ( only 10 weeks from biopsy to surgery ). My Dr. and this forum have been great assets to me during this crisis.
