Hi everyone, well only 6 days to go for catheter removal, am coping ok but sure looking forward to the day, am driving, (short distance) doing little jobs around the property, have had a little trouble with the old bowel, (lotsa wind, and going 3-4 times a day) but all ok except I get a bit tired in afternoon and need a sleep.
I have frightened half my bowling club into going for a PSA & DRE, so the Doc around here,should have made enough cash to buy a new BMW!! by the way, my cousins husband went for a DRE also, and his Doc said " there is a slight thickening, but don't worry about it" I told him to make an appointment with a specialist.....what do you think?
